This woman has a sister who’s two years younger than her. She graduated from high school when she was 16 and a half years old, and before graduation, she hoped to attend prom. Unfortunately, her parents didn’t allow her to go.

She started working when she was 14, but her parents took her paychecks on every payday. They didn’t allow her the opportunity to save her own money even though she had a job.

Her parents told her she had to pay for her dress, hair, makeup, and prom tickets on her own while they continued taking her paychecks.

“I got really sad and refused to give them the money going forward, so they kicked me out after three months, and I had to live in a community college dorm,” she said.

Luckily, the dorm she lived in was much less expensive than rent in traditional apartments in her area. However, her first year of college was tough.

Now, she’s nearly done with her second year of college and is more financially stable. She had enough money to start renting an apartment near her school. Since moving out of her parents’ house, she has continued following her sister on social media.

“She posted a TikTok saying, ‘When prom is in a few weeks,’ and it was her booking nail appointments, hair, makeup, and choosing a dress,” she explained.

After seeing this video, she texted her sister to find out how she paid for all the prom-related expenses since she’d never had a job. Her sister informed her that their parents were paying for everything.

She was understandably devastated that their parents treated her and her sister differently, and, in her view, it seemed like her parents despised her.
