Unhappy Is there a term for this???

My mother and I have always had a rocky relationship and I wanted to know if there are things that she does which have terms for them (like gaslighting or something) Iím the youngest in my family (16 years old) and I have a 33 year old brother and a 35 year old sister, Iíve always felt like I wasnít apart of the family because I was never involved in things and I have proof of this because my family donít tell me anything. My cousin has recently has a baby with his girlfriend and I had no idea she was pregnant or that they were even still together until a week to her due date, my mother said she thought that I knew but no one had said anything to me, I then asked her if my cousin was living in *random town name* or if he was still living in my aunts house and she said what she frequently says; ďdonít you be telling anybody where he lives or anything!Ē Iíve never understood why she shouts this at me so often because I have very few friends and Iím not close to anyone in our immediate family that I would talk to them about this. Other things that I wasnít told about where my aunts minor heart attack or my grandmothers cancer diagnosis, I wanted to know if there was a term for this or if Iím just being paranoid please help X

I'm not quite sure if there is a term for it it might be categorised as a former of emotional abuse in its broader sense.
I understand that being left out like that isn't nice and that you feel bad about it. I think this happens because of the huge age gap in your family. Maybe your Mom doesn't realise she can treat you and talk to you like to an adult now, too.
Did you ever talk to her about your feelings like you describe them here?
