How can I stop my mom from doing this immature crap?

Okay, so I live with my mom unfortunately. She always treats my stuff like crap, and is always breaking my things. Before I go to work, I shut off my computer. I come home and find all my cords yanked out. She has done this so many times, that my audio Jack in the back hardly works, and I’ve already gone through one video card because of her. She does this whenever she gets pissed. Most of the time I have no idea what causes her anger. I tell her to stop but she says if I don’t like it then I can get out. I want to move out. However, I just started a new job. Is there a way that I can put a lock on the cords in the back so she can’t yank them out anymore?

But I* not buying, for some reason I can’t edit the question.

take whatever money you have and get a lock for your room. I feel so bad for you, my son lives with me, leaves stuff on, gets food on the furniture etc, but I’m so glad he’s here. Try to find out why she’s angry- by asking her about it when she’s calm.

Do you spend a lot of time on your computers? Is that why she focuses her anger on them?

Honestly, her behavior sounds a little out of control.

You may want to unplug all your cords before you leave.

Lock your room.

@JLeslie No I don’t use it all the time. I will probably get a lock for my door.

You can’t change someone else. :-(

Explain the lock and the necessity. I’d tell her gently that you’re planning to save money so you can move. When you are working, you might offer to contribute to the household budget. She may be having hormonal problems.
