I did not like that my mother wanted to take me everywhere including school, parties, or trips because friends my age had more freedom. I was already in sixth grade and I felt that I should be more independent and start getting things done on my own just like my friends.
As a single parent, my mother had to work day and night to support us. While she was working long hours cleaning people’s houses, as the oldest of three children, I had to quickly learn how to cook, how to clean, and take care of my siblings. From getting the kids ready for school, helping them with their homework, and even bathing them, I had a lot of responsibility at only 9 years old.
