I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
Well today as we speak, my sister is being tested as a mother.
About a month or so ago, I set up a cell phone account for my mom and her boyfriend. They set up their own plan, but I just did it in my name, so that they could get my employee discount. Well they got their phones, and my mom's boyfriend decided he really didn't use his phone, so he gives it to my neice as a Chritmas present. All she had to do was not go over her minutes, and she'd be fine.
I get an email that her bill is ready to look at and it says.......$356!!!! I'm like ok maybe they didn't set the plan up right cuz it supposed to be a about $70 or less with my discount. So I called for my mom to ask the cell phone company was there some kinda mistake. He's like no the 2nd line you got is the one that ran the bill over with. They share 700 minutes and my mom only used 200. Well my neice used the remaining 500 plus 657 more!!! I got off the phone and called my mom. Boy was she PISSED!!!!
So then I get back to my job and look at the bill completely and sure shit that's what happened. Not to mention she went and did text and picture messaging when we all told her not to.
So my sister gets home to get in her ass and my neice told her that she's mean and doesn't want to stay with her anymore. My sister told her that if she wants to leave, then go. So my neice packed some clothes and left. My sis went after her and she said she was on her way to my grandmother's house. Made her get in the car and my neice told my nephew that she still wasn't going to stay there. We are guessing she's gonna skip school tomorrow or go after school. So we just called my grandmother and warned her she said she didn't want to interfere with my sister's business.
Man I tell you, I'm not looking forward to my son becoming a pre-teen/teenager, cuz I know I put my mom thru some hell when I used to run away.
At this point I don't know what my sister should do. I hate to say it, but she should of nipped this in the bud a long time ago. But she was so in denial about my neice, so now she has to pay the consequences. Instead of yelling and hitting her, she should of been talking to her more often or I say even getting her some physiciatric help. There is nothing wrong with going to a shrink. She can also get her involved in things like church or something, but I guess that would be like putting in work to her. OH WELL. Do you guys have any suggestions?
