Why does my mam never listen

Your Question

Why does my mam never listen and just always give out to me  


Hi there, 

Thanks so much for getting in touch.  

It can be tough to realise when someone is not listening to you. It sounds like you are feeling like you are not heard and just always being given out to. Have you tried to calmly explain to your mam that you feel you are not being heard? Sometimes taking a step back and having a quiet word when both people are feeling calm can be a good approach to address a difficult topic.  

We are wondering if you have spoken to a friend or trusted adult about what is going on for you. Talking things through, with someone neutral, can help us to feel better and to see a clearer picture of what is going on, so that you don’t go through these big feelings alone. If you ever need to talk about anything that is going on for you Childline is here for you anytime you need us, day, and night, is where you can live chat to us and you can call us  on our freephone service, 1800 66 66 66. 

Take care of yourself and know that your feelings matter. We are here for you. 

Take Care,
