ok here it is. first my mom never hits me. me and my bother got into a fight at mcdonalds we threw ketchup on each other.im older im 15 he is 13. i got some ketchup on some woman clothes and my mom had to reinburst 45 dollars for the damage. my mom freak out on me told me i was a immature baby and my brother to in front of people in mcdonlads. Leaving mcdonalds she told us that she should get us some pacifers and some pampers and a playpen. people were looking at me. like she was right. she took away my x box and games and i pod i cant go out on weekends now. on the car ride home she is yelling at us telling us when she goes to wallmart she should buy us a cribs and rattles

Can i turn her into CPS for abuse saying those things to me? isnt it slander or something saying lies about someone. saying i need pampers and making me look bad in public. just to scare her and For the record he started it my brother not me. its not fair now she is not going to let me take drivers ed in school. she told me that im to imature to drive that babies dont get to do grown up things. she saying all these mean things to me. I have a right to drive? cant they make her a better mom or something. this suxs so bad wut she did to me.

This is probably not what you want to hear but discipline and abuse are not the same thing. From what you described, you and your brother were behaving inappropriately and your mother punished you by taking away privileges (x box, I pod, grounding). That is not abusive, it's parenting. Perhaps yelling and saying you need diapers wasn't the best decision but parents are human beings and they get frustrated and sometimes say things out of anger and frustration that they wouldn't say otherwise.

That being said, you are always welcome to call Child Protective Services if you feel you are being harmed in any way. They will tell you if the reasons you called are valid or not.

@dogemily Libel is not abuse and has nothing to do with CPS. It is something you can be sued for in civil court.

Your mother sounds like she hit her boiling point and she could not contain herself from the frustration of this event. It also sounds like this (horse playing) has happened before and she just lost it in public. Sometimes we get upset as parents and say things because we are so upset in the heat of the situation. That dosen't mean she will stop you from taking Drivers Education. To make amends with your mother, you and your brother need to make this up to her because, not only was this event embarrassing to her, it also has cost her 45 dollars because of your behavior. That wasn't fair to you mother, was it? You and your brother must apologise to her and rectify this situation by making it up to her. First the apology and some kind of pay back for the monetary part. Maybe working around the house. Washing the car and vacuuming it out so she won't have to pay for this nexttime. Babysitting for the neighbor or mowing someones lawn. Believe me, this will show her how truly sorry you are for the behavior no matter who started it. She might have a different outook regarding what she said to you that day. Regarding abuse..your mother has done nothing but shown frustration, gave you parental discipline by removing things from you for inappropriate behavior, and made some threats that I am certain you can rectify with good behavior, an apology and the payback you and your brother owe her. Let us know the outcome! Good luck!
