Living with parents who believe in the phrase “work to live, not live to work” has not been easy for this teenager. Contributing to household bills and living in a three-bedroom apartment with her parents and younger brother, she is now faced with the prospect of having to give up her own room for her parents' new baby. Despite paying bills like an adult, her parents asked her to move out of her room and share a room with her younger brother so that the baby could have her own room. The teenager refused, feeling uncomfortable sharing a room with a sibling of the opposite sex and believing that it was not her responsibility to give up her personal space for her parent's child. However, her parents called her selfish and her mother has resorted to sleeping at a friend's house to avoid her. The situation has caused tension between her and her family, and her younger brother has even called her an a**hole. Read on to see what others have to say about this family dilemma.
