I’m 16 and I feel miserable. I’m tired of being a mom to my siblings. I’m tired of feeling like a housewife juggling school. I’m tired of feeling worthless and inadequate.

    You're 16 , you shouldn't have this many responsibilities at that age, definitely not that of a mom, I know you're helping out but don't be so hard on yourself, you're not worthless, you're not a piece of shit. you're doing your best and its amazing that you have all that on your plate at 16, at 16 I was smoking weed and drinking hanging out with friends. Nobody can ever say to you that you're not doing a good enough job.

    I understand it is heartbreaking cause kids that young need the love and attention , just do your best that's all you can do.Ask for help tell your mom about all this , if you don't tell her she will think you'll doing just fine.

    Look I'm gonna be straight with you.
    It is NOT YOUR JOB to raise your siblings. It is your mother's.
    You are doing the best you can considering the circumstances.
    Your sister is crying out for attention I'm assuming because she's being raised by a child and misses her mother.
    You are entitled to your feelings but sweet heart you MUST tell your mother or a school councilor or anyone in real life that you are feeling so desperate. You're in a tough spot
    You should be able to enjoy the things kids your age are doing. We don't always have to be the "good" daughters to be good people. Hang in there. You shouldn't feel guilty about approaching this convo with your mom either. She needs to know.

    The only thing you're doing wrong is giving too much of yourself to others. Oh, and blaming yourself. You are clearly a hard worker, you are compassionate and humble, and I think you're smart--you'd do fine in school if you could lower your stress. Really, workplaces don't care about your grades all that much--they care if you completed the course or not. Stop beating yourself up. If you take care of and look after yourself first, then you'll max out your potential. You're a wonderful young woman, and I hope you can go where you please.

    Love, you don't have to blame yourself for the things you've done for your siblings and mother, and certainly you have done everything you could have ever give to them. I'm sure your little sister appreciates you, but she may take a while to understand that.

    I had a similar situation to you, I helped raise my siblings because our parents are working abroad, and things can get messy because of their different needs. I've forgotten how many times I've ran from my class to the clinic and searched the whole school because my brother decided that running around while having a nosebleed is fun.

    Like you, I had a breakdown while in class. I was telling my 10th Grade PE teacher what I've been through; raising my siblings, giving them proper discipline, scolding them every single day. I felt lighter. Free. I know that it must be hard to let it all out and bawling your eyes in front of someone you know, but it would be worth it. I promise you.

    I want to tell you something he told me that made me more solid of myself, “I'm proud of what you did for your siblings, and I know it's hard shouldering that heavy of a responsibility so young. Your siblings and parents are lucky to have a child and sibling like you. But you need to think about what makes you happy, maybe take a breather often. If I ever have a child, I want them to be just like you.”

    Man had a child and was telling the whole class while smiling at me. I never felt more proud of myself than right at that moment.

    Sweetie, don't you dare feel like a failure for what you did. When they grow up and started thinking for themselves, they'll cherish you more like mine did. Though that authority might shake when the parents are around, those two got meaner the longer my parents stay.

    My sister raised me, nine years older she hated when I slipped up and called her mum.
    The eldest of three younger brothers she had to be tuff. When she was stressed, trying to study, look out!
    She tore through us boys as if we where paper machete. We didn't mean to upset her. Boys love to fight but she hated it.
    Hell, she cooked us pancakes on Sunday mornings as we watched the wrestling. So much sugar.. we knew she loved us.
    Then she brought a boy home, Yeah poor bloke never stood a chance. Leave my sister alone you pervert!
    Finally my sister couldn't take anymore and moved out. I took it as she didn't love us anymore,
    She went onto Uni, put two masters under her belt and then added nine letters to her name. Married and a son of her own.
    I spoke to her after twenty odd years of not. She's old now.
    I spoke of times of old, I tried to explain how even today, I can't eat a pancakes without thinking of her and thanked her for the love.
    She smiled, The pancakes? I had to put extra sugar on them because I burnt the crap out of them! If that's your fondest memory, I did fail you.
    I said it wasn't the pancakes, It was all the bitching you did as you made them, she laughed,
