Why Does My Mom Try to Put Me Down and Not Support Me?

Question by Kaitlyn: why does my mom try to put me down and not support me?
So a little while ago i walk in the living room and told my mom that i am starting to get blisters from my guitar and she doesnt say anything so i went on with what i had to do and she goes “you were sleeping all day and just getting up when i was getting home from work, im tired”, well i was up until 4am practicing my guitar being that i dream of getting a record deal or be on american idol. she randomly says “your not getting a car at 16 or 17 and your not getting ins. on my car so you wont be able to drive at all”, well i dont exactly get what that has to do with anything? I said im getting a job when im 16 and she says “oh really how are you going to get there” and i just walked in my room and closed the door. It kinda hurts me, she wants me to tell her everything, but i just feel like she just going to laugh if i tell her i want to adution for amaerican idol or anything close to that. I just want to know why she does this and what shes getting out of it? I want to be a singer and it would be amazing if i get there without my familys support, it will be hard but im willing to try.

Anyone Familiar With Benefits Under Chapter 31 Vocational Rehab?

Question by TheMatador: Anyone familiar with benefits under Chapter 31 Vocational Rehab?
To clarify, I would like to know whether Chapter 30 benefits have to be used in conjunction with Chapter 31. Also, is getting the allowance for subsistance while you train automatic or do you have to qualify for it?

Best answer:

Answer by thelightedtorch
If you get one, you don’t get the other. You have 4 total years. So if you use Ch. 30 for 2 years, you can get Voc Rehab for the remaining 2. Also, I’m pretty sure the subsistence allowance is automatic. Also you have to be disabled to use Voc Rehab. At least 30%, I think.
