It was a struggle growing up in a single parent household. My mother had four children, two boys and two girls and I was the oldest girl. My mother was almost never home and I was left being a mother to kids that I did not give birth to. Being responsible for someone else’s kids at an early age had a major effect on my life. I stayed in trouble. I guess this was because I was robbed of my childhood. I did not get to go out often to play with the other kids thanks to my mother being at school or work. With her not being at home as the adult, it put me in a position to be the adult no one taught me to be. I got in trouble everyday especially in school because I was being what I never got to be at home, a kid. Due to me being labeled as a troubled child no one listened to what I had to say. I guess that was because they felt as though I always had an excuse; but in my eyes that left me speechless, as if I had nothing to say, or as if I did not have a voice. This caused anger, and being angry caused me to lash out. In their (my mother, school, juvenile justice) eyes I was getting worse and was now labeled as a juvenile delinquent or at risk youth. Being constantly labeled as a bad child, made me believe that I was a bad child, instead of being misunderstood. I begin to act out the definition of bad because that was what they expected of me. I was labeled as a juvenile delinquent, why not act like a juvenile delinquent?
