Hey there, thanks for reaching out to us,
Your mum was stressed, she heard you curse under your breath and slapped you across your arm. She was leaving laundry on the stairs which made you late, so you were freaking out. When you did leave she shouted at you to take care of you shit.
We’re really sorry to hear that you’re going through this tough time with your mum. It sounds like things got pretty heated, and it’s totally understandable that you’re feeling upset about the situation. It’s never easy when emotions run high, especially when it involves someone we care about like a parent.
First off, we want you to know that you’re not alone in this. Many teenagers find themselves in similar situations where tensions rise between them and their parents. It’s important to remember that everyone handles stress differently, and sometimes it can lead to misunderstandings or conflicts like the one you experienced.
It’s also important to recognise that both you and your mum may have been feeling overwhelmed in that moment. Stress can make us say or do things we don’t mean, and it sounds like that might have been the case here. That being said, it’s never okay for anyone to use physical force or hurtful words, regardless of the circumstances. This article may help you to reconcile with your mum
