Unhappy Mom threatened to flush my betta's

My mom claimed my room was too messy(It's not) And threatened to flush my betta's. I don't care how pissed you get at your child, you should never threaten them by killing their pets. The sad thing is, I wouldn't put it past her to force me to flush them

My parents did something similar to this with my hermit crabs a while back, but for a different reason than a messy room (I won't say why sinceiIt was a kinda personal thing). Although they didn't threaten to flush them, just that I would have to get rid of them... it was awful! I don't know how I could live without my hermies... they are part of the family now, and I love them so much... I started crying when I heard that. Thankfully I didn't have to end up getting rid of them...

I don't know your parents, but I would really just clean my room if I were you. Even if it's not messy, do your best, and hopefully your bettas will be spared. : )

I doubt your mom would flush them down. Parents say stuff like that a lot because it has an effect.

Yeah, and sometimes the effect can scar a kid's mind for life. This makes me SO MAD!

I call it mental/emotional abuse

My betta's are my babies. :( They help with therapy for my autism.

On behalf of mom's everywhere, I am so, so sorry that your Mom said that to you.
She's your mom, and you know her well enough to know if this is a good idea, but if you think that you could go to her sometime when she's not upset about anything, and tell her that it really scared and upset you when she said she'd kill your pets over a messy room and ask if there's anything that you guys can do to help each other, then perhaps that might help.
