I have to lie to my dad for child support?
he thinks i don't love him because i don't call him and he always has to call me but truth is i cry when i hear his voice because i love him so much. sometimes i have to hold the phone against my shirt or pillow so he doesn't here my sniffles. :)
the only reason we're still getting child support is because of my little brother and it's $200. there have been plenty times we were homeless but now we're ok and my mom still wants me to lie.
i have to lie and say my mom doesn't have a boyfriend when her boyfriend of 2 years is the reason i can go to college. you know, stuff like that.
i tried talking to my mom about it but she doesn't really listen, she just goes on about how important this money is because it pays for electricity and gas (when i know too well she's a spendthrift and comes home with useless stuff when that money could've gone to electicity and gas like she says.)
i've adressed my mom's spending issues and the way i feel about lying to my dad many times but it goes through one ear and out the other with her. she's like a teenager sometimes and i feel like i have to be the parent (but i never say that because she works hard.)
my dad doesn't want to pay child support anymore and he's pretty rich. :/
it's just the whole lying concept. i want to talk to my dad without having to lie about my life.
does anyone have suggestions? ...or maybe in a similar boat?
please and thanks! :)
