Family Drama

A few months ago, my younger sister asked me could she come live with me if things got worse between her and my mother... I of course, love my lil sis to death and told her yes.

This morning, the inevitable happened- I recieved a telephonecall from one of my lil sisters, who was crying. She choked back tears as she told me how my mother had lost her mind at 8:00am this morning and began cursuing her out, hitting her, and than to make matters worse, began choking her- (none of this suprised me- I had warned her earlier about turning the BIG 17 and how my mother would freak out... MY mother did after all evict me from her house at 17.)

So, my lil sis called the police, who I presume are supposed to serve and protect, but decided to tie her arms to the back of a chair with handcuffs and then threaten to send her to "juvee" (detention center). According to my lil sis, the cops told her that they would put her in "juvee" because she called the cops to report the fact that my mom was whopping her ass... (not right)...

So, as I listened to this horror story, I attempted to comfort my little sis, and ask her questions and just told her to calm down... then it happened.. I asked her "so, what do you need me to do?" and she stated well, I want to come live with you.. and I'm like ok and what about school.. and she's like I'll go to school there and I'm like ok... so what are you going to do? and she says well I'm going to ask mommy can I come live with you.. and I'm like ok.. let me know what happens...

So, was my reaction feasible... i mean logically... i mean reasonable...

After hearing the horror story this morning, of how my mother lost her mind- similiar to the same way she did when I was 17, I say hell yes.

Now, I'm faced with how am I going to get her way to Chicago.... is this going to end up being a drive back home to Jersey or a quick flight expenditure, which would mean one of my bills won't get paid and I'm I really ready to live with a 17 year old? I mean, I would have to stop some of the things I do and I would definetely have to stash the porno collection.

I am half worried/ half excited/ half confused... and I feel like what the hell is wrong with my family?

I would recommend that you wait and see what the results would be after they calm down.

I have four sisters, younger and older, and when they hit the 17 year old range, mother and daughter have these falling out issues. Believe or not, after they calm down, which may take some days, things will come back to normal.

I just learned to stay out of it until it is VERY CLEAR that things are not resolving no time soon.

I advise not to rush and do any planning. The majority of the time is the issue with the child coming into maturity. This way, you would avoid late bills, hiding porno and having guys coming in and out the back door.....

Wow, I actually kinda agree with the captain. Wait to see if she is really needs to roll out.

I know you love your sis but if her coming to stay will mean EB can't kept his head above the water, homegirl better have a part time job lined up when she comes through. That's extra lights on, extra water usage, extra mouth to feed, all dat!
