Child Divorce Story of Autumn
My parents divorced when I was 6 It was really hard to go through. Before the divorce all they did was scream and yell.
It was hard to ignore because we lived in a two bedroom trailer. I would usually cram my head under a pillow and cry. My mom was working and a college student. My dad didn't have a job. That's mostly what they fought over.
My dad moved out and lived with my PawPaw down the Holler. He became a mailman. There was 1 song that I loved, Thank God For Kids. He'd play it for me in the car.
Mom hated the song so Dad would go up and down the holler, by the house, playing it loud. One day Mom called the cops on him. It was so scary to see the police talking to my dad. I got a big bug in my eye and mom was talking to an officer so I didn't know what to do. When he left mom got it out. We moved away from the holler to get away from the drama.
For the next few years it was OK. I went through divorce therapy. My dad started dating my baby sitter. They ended up getting married. My mom kicked my big sister out because she rode the four wheeler when told not to, when I was 8. My mom was heart broken after that. she cried her self to sleep many nights. I had a terrible birthday that year.
One day I asked my mom if i could go to a counselor. She blew up and said that I don't need to go around and tell everyone that she's a bad mother. I was 10. My dad and stepmother divorced. Now he's with another woman. She's nicer than the last. She's an adoptive mother.
There on a on again of again thing. He got a new job and a house. I live with my mom and I visit my dad sometimes. I Don't know what to do now.
I want to live with my dad but I don't know how to tell my mom. I don't want to hurt her. I'm scared she might hurt herself because I've always been her little girl and she almost died when my sister moved out. Please leave a comment on what I should do. I'm sure it's been hardest on my little brother. He is 9, I'm 12, and my sister is 17.
