I can't wait to get my brother out of my mother's house. It's a year until he's 18, but we're looking into emancipation laws. I hate watching him go through the same mind games, the same stress and anger and hopelessness that I did. He does not need to be in that house. They do nothing for him. WE feed him. WE clothe him. WE provide transportation. WE gave him a phone and he pays his own phone bill. All they do is try to steal his money, take away his phone, and keep him trapped there. For no reason other than they just can. It pisses me off and I just feel so helpless over everything. I'm not in a huge position of power where I can HELP him more than I already am. Because he is still underage.
