My dad was arrested in November of this year and currently in jail. I was left in charge of caring for my two brothers (2 & 12). Its only been a couple of weeks and it's already taking a toll on my mind. I honestly I feel that I can't do it anymore, its hard to wrap my head around how to provide daily needs. I have a job but they only let me work 15 hours at minimum wage. We did get assistance but its going to end soon because my dad didn't go to the review board. At this point I'm clueless, I ask my family members what should I do and they're not much support. I'm afraid to tell them how I feel because of the criticism ( they've done it before) I dont want them to suffer because I love them. I want them to grow up in a nice home. We live in a trailer and its falling apart. I don't know the first thing about parenting, I've read books and blogs. I just try so hard to keep whats left of my family together. My parents separated when I was 10, then my mom got deported, now this situation. I don't know what to do, Should I let them go to relatives or keep them?
