When this student is upset with his teacher, she asks Reddit:
I (17m) am a high school student and work a part-time job. I work every day except Sundays and Mondays.
2 years ago, my mom (51F) abandoned me. I woke up one morning to my aunt banging on my front door, saying that my mom called her and admitted to moving away with her boyfriend.
My aunt and I called my mom frantically and when she finally answered, she told us that she never wanted to be a mom.
Up until this point, my mom had been amazing. She had a good-paying job, she was on the PTA, everything.
I begged her to come home but she said that she, for her mental health, couldn’t do “this” any longer and that since I was 15 at the time, that I could basically take care of myself. She left me about $500 but that was it.
