this girl is 17, she shouldn't HAVE to worry about taking care of her family. When you're a child, you're family takes care of you. I'm not saying that she shouldn't help in this situation, but she shouldn't be viewed as bratty for being slightly frustrated at the situation.

It It sucks that you have to take responsibilty for your parents' mistake but on the other hand you should be proud of yourself for being able to take care of the family in a crisis! Go you!

I'm glad to hear you're there! It's honestly better than nothing and hopefully they can get the miscommunication fixed up quickly and it won't bother you. Though if you kept your money before all of this happened, I hope they pay you back sometime down the road. It's hard to raise up money to buy things when you're still in school. Good luck!

Well you are almost an adult. Buy groceries now and think about the future goodwill you will earn

Google "local food banks" - they usually exist nearby, even in you're outside of a city. If you don't have any luck there, try any churches or local organizations that ever have food drives. You can also call your local welfare office - if they can't help, they can direct you to organizations that may be able to. I know it can be difficult to accept help from strangers, but it's better than digging the hole deeper by using up every penny coming into the household.

Oh nooo you mean you have to help your family out which I'm assuming you still live with? Good chance to practice adulting. I've helped my family with thousands of dollars and I'd be glad to do it again.
