KutexKat is worried about her Dad

Our parents take care of us, but that doesn't stop us from worrying about our parents sometimes. Kutex Cat is going through that right now. Can you help?

I know I have not posted in a while but now I need to talk. My dad might get fired and the people at his work are really mean including his bosses. I am not sure that either way is right. I am scared for him. Will he be okay? Has anyone one through this? I am not sure how to control my emotions and I need help right now. I am not sure I can talk to anyone because even when I talk to my parents they are not very nice and my dad does not want me to worry. He might get fired the day of my birthday.   I know some of you out there are Christians so please pray and if your not please wish me, my dad, and family luck!

I am not sure how I feel about telling you but since no one knows me, I guess it is okay. I am really worried and I think that maybe he will get fired. If he gets fired he might not have a job for a long time but if he stays people at his work will probably find ways to be mean to him. The people at his work are even worse then bullies, and we all know how bullies make us feel,think, and want.   If the bully tells you you're ugly you begin to think this way. I feel like just going in my closet with a pillow and crying which really is not an option. :( I am scared and sad and every other negative feeling I can think of.

What should I do? Stand up? No... I am a kid..... They could fight harder back....   My dad could get in trouble for telling me that he may be fired because people are mean. I do not know what to think feel or say. He is always busy and I tell him how I feel and then he goes on that thing. "Well, (My Name) I can't drop everything for you all the time. I could be fired if I don't get this done." or sometimes "LEAVE ME ALONE" or "GO AWAY"

I am so confused and helpless like a baby who's lollipop got stolen or saw her mother's purse being stolen. How do I get through this? Thanks for reading this. Now I do not feel so helpless! KutexKat  

You sound pretty smart, KutexKat. For instance, you knew that you needed to get those worries off your chest. And writing them down seemed to help you. Is there someone you can talk with, like a grandparent, school counselor, or someone like that? Talking is a good step because, truth is, you can't control what goes on at your Dad's work. I hope things improve for you and you are able to worry less. 

What else, Pink Locker girls? Have you ever worried about your Mom or Dad losing a job?  

Think pink!

I wish your family luck. Be strong. Your dad's workmates must be so immature to behave like a bully. You can't do anything but be there for your dad. You will get through this. Everyone goes through hard times. You go KutexKat! :)

There are 2 things I need to say.

#1 Kutexkat~I've never been worried about a parent losing a job, but I can relate to the whole " meanness at work" thing.

#2 Hugsandsmiles(I'd prefer to call you that if you don't mind)~I agree with ViolinistAtSoul. Your previous name was so cute and happy. It's totally your choice, but I think you should change it back.

Guys could you help me out?? I'm having family trouble. My family always says I'm being rude and disrespectful when I'm not trying to be. And then they will quiz me for hours on why I'm in a bad mood when I'm not in a bad mood. I have had my mom mad at me so many times the past couple weeks it's not even funny. And I can't even get away and take a break because I'm homeschooled so I'm with my family 24/7. Please help me it's getting really bad.

This kind of just happend to my friend. I gave her a list of quotes that helped her. Remember in times of need we will always be here for you. I will also pray for you. Maybe you could find a time where your dad isn't busy and ask him something. Try to grow closer to your dad. Even if there isn't a rupture in your relationship with him, it could help him.

@ViolinistAtSoul, family can be tough to deal with especially since they spend so much time with you since you are homeschooled. It can easily make you cranky that people assume you will be moody or quiz you about being rude all the time, even if you are not, but persevere and answer with the kindest tone that you can muster, since sounding a little sarcastic or annoyed is way too easy (at least for me) also, dont sound even remotely whiney, as in "But I wasnt doing it on puuur-pose!" Just try to Be positive and Sm:)e! And hopefully they will stop bothering you about it. PS, like I said above, Im glad you liked my name!

Don't worry to much. And if your dad does loose his job, he WILL find a new one. And I know that. My mom and dad had a divorce and since my dad had the job, not my mom, my mom had to find a job. It took 4 years for my mom to finish collage and find a place to work. Know she has a job, and we are all living happily ever after. So, don't worry. (Hey, if you want to here how I handle some moody feelings, listen. I just want to prove that being 11 and 12, doesn't mean that you can't control your emotions. Right when I want to cry, I just stand up and say, "I am Ok, I am loved, and I am me!" I sometimes think of all my family member who love me, and repeat over and over again that I am Ok. I really does help. And I am rooting you on! You can live through it!

the economy is getting worse and more people are losing jobs. us girls have to keep our chins up and remind our parents to smile.
keep going forward, KutexKat, and trust yourself.

I remember I lived with my mum only when I was little. We did not have much money but we managed fine. I know it might be hard to think this, but your life is a bit upside-down at the moment, but when you get older, things will get much better.
Think to the future. You and your family will manage just fine like everyone else`s.

It sounds like you are a very nice girl going through a very tough time. Just remember, you are not alone! There are lots of people who care about you and don't want anything to happen, including us on this website. It may help you to talk to a counselor, because they will listen but also keep your information PRIVATE, which it sounds like you want. A diary might help you get your feelings out too. I will pray for you, because no girl should have to go through that. Good luck!

A journal would help. Express your feelings to your journal. I think it's best that you leave you dad alone. He can't blame you for anything, and it's best to stay out of trouble. Remember, your dad loves you. There will be other jobs for him, so don't worry if he loses it. Who knows? he might get a better one. I think he's just grumpy, and leave the hard work for you and your mom and focus on school and homework.
