Your Question

Why does my mother hate me


Hi there, you are very welcome to Ask Alex.
Thank you for contacting us. We understand that it’s not always easy to share how we’re feeling or what’s going on for us, but we also know how important it is to talk about it.
It sounds like right now you feel like your mother hates you. We are sorry to hear this; it must be difficult and lonely feeling this way. Have you been able to have a chat with your mother to tell her how you are feeling? You would have the right to let her know how you are feeling and the right to get help and support.
We aren’t fully sure of your situation and how you came to feel this way, but if you cannot speak to your mother, we recommend that you chat to another trusted adult in your life about this and how it is making you feel. This trusted adult could be a teacher, another family member, or someone that you have chatted to in the past when something was bothering you.
