How do i get my family to treat me like my age?

Im 16... 11th grade in HS. I get good grades. I NEVER misbehave at school. I'm quiet & a shy one at school... But at home, i get told what to do, i get yelled at, i get told what to do or how to act! Im forced to babysit kids, 5&more at a time because they refuse to close their legs. They can't even support the kids! Thats why i live with my grandmother but she acts as though im a person she works with. Go do this, you HAVE to watch the kids, you hhave no other choice. Yadada. & i get nothing. Okay $25 for like 6 hours. Thats bs. Family knows i smoke,& is sexualy active. But they get mad about it... What can i do? I just want to run away. I feel like im in hell with my family.

You are 16, not 18 or 21. When you move out, do what you want. Till then, their house, their rules. Practice safe sex, don't continue smoking cause it will lead to more issues later on. Focus on school and getting your life right for your adult years which is all your parents want. You will always be their baby. Quit... More

No you should confront them and make them stop treating you like trash. If they dont move in with your grandma or a friend.

its true what everyone says, but i suggest wait until you win the lottery, then you can whatever your want, but the chances are slim, maybe get with friends and move out, don't trust a guy unless your truly like him or you will end up back to square one
