my mom pays for my three siblings cellphones and cell phone bills, they are 23 18 and 13, im 17. it was my birthday on the 12th and my gift was me paying for my new phone and i give 50 bucks a month for it... i dont get why though. why i have to pay and my siblings dont. also she pays for my brothers and sisters cars and their insurance. and yet im not allowed to get my license until i can afford my own insurance. my mom pays for my older brothers baby exspenses, and she asked to return some of my christmas gifts so she could buy him a crib. i just got my first job in october at mcdonalds, and i work 25 hours a week, but my money has to go in my moms bank account even though i payed to start my own... when my siblings have their money they work for. i also have a question.. is it legal for my mom to take money that were checks with my name on it, such as communion money and confirmation money or birthday money; all checks but they have my name on it. the thing is im a minor and ik whats mine is hers, but can she honestly take all of my money.? im moving out in 11 months and i had 9 grand. but now i have barely 2. my mom treats me very poorly but no one seems to think im right. this is only the money side of my issues with her. am i right to be upset or no? honest answers please.
