My mom and I are getting an apartment next month. We’ve always lived with my grandparents because mom could not pay for things and give us our own place. My mom took a pic of our lease and put it on Facebook saying how happy she is and the pic had our address on it. Some people said she shouldn’t of done that now everyone knows our apartment address. My mom keeps telling everyone that I am a brick wall beast and she has me to protect her. It sounds like she’s talking about a guard dog and I’m mad. Or that I’m some tough guy or something. I am tall and thicker but I don’t want everyone to think I’m some tough guyish girl. I don’t feel pretty being called that. Now mom keeps calling me the beast and I don’t know why. I don’t want to be called the beast.

Dear Natalie,

Respectfully speak to your Mother and tell her exactly how you feel. I am sure she doesn’t think it bothers you or she thinks it is funny but obviously it is not. I completely understand her happiness and pride about getting your own place, that’s great, however it would be wise and much safer for you both if she removed the lease from facebook or blur your address.
Honey, your Mom sounds like she is on cloud nine with happiness and is joking around. In all the excitement of getting your own place she forgot or hasn’t noticed that her words are hurting you. Ask her to please stop calling you names and to understand it makes you feel comfortable. It sounds like you and your Mom are on the way to a fresh start, don’t let hurtful words dampen the excitement.
Best of luck in your new apartment, I am proud of you both.

Good Luck & Huge Muther Hugs,

One Tough Muther
