I'm sorry you've had to go through all that, it must have been horrible. I can relate to a lot of what you talked about, and I was wondering if we could connect over email and perhaps share some thoughts and experiences. I would really appreciate it, and I think venting about it could be good for both of us.

Sorry, but sometimes you get bum parents. Fortunately, your are old enough to do something about it - start mowing lawns or something, & buy your own stuff. Frankly, parents don't owe you anything more than (sufficient) food, shelter & clothing, and a safe, clean & loving environment to grow up in. Buying fancy, "nice" stuff isn't a parenting requirement, but a luxury. Has your attitude, grades & general effort around the house waranted nicer than the basics? If so, then he sounds like a selfish jerk; if not, maybe you need to put in some effort there. Good luck.
