Hi there and welcome to Ask Alex.  

Thank you for contacting us. We understand that it’s not always easy to share our worries and concerns, but we also know how important it is to talk about how we are feeling. 

You have asked if it is normal for your mom to always get angry with you and yell about everything and make you feel bad when you didn’t do anything wrong? We are sorry to hear you are going through this at home with your mum. You are so brave in writing to us today, looking to get the help and support that you deserve. 

Your mum does not have the right to hurt you in any way. She has a responsibility to look after you and to care for you emotionally, mentally, and physically. Have you told your mum how she is making you feel?   

We understand it can be difficult sometimes to talk to our parents about our thoughts and about how we feel. However, talking and sharing your thoughts and feelings with others may help you through what you are experiencing. It is ok to ask for help and support. Maybe you would feel more comfortable talking to another adult you trust about what is going on at home and your relationship with your mom. You have a right to be listened to and to be heard. You also have a right to seek help and support for how you are feeling.   

Remember, you can always phone Childline on 1800 66 66 66 to talk about what is going on for you, if you don’t feel ready to talk to someone in your life quite yet. We are here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our web chat service through, is also available daily (just click the orange Live Chat tab). We are here to listen to and support you, and  explore the options that are available to you. We are here to help you in a way that suits you.   

Take care of yourself, please get in touch with us soon.
