Default I don't want my friends to see where I live.

I literally live in a trailer. My mom works from home. She babysits so the place looks like a nursery. It's not like a place to chill. My friends have no idea where or how I live. I don't invite anyone over. They live in nice neiborhoods with no financial worries. My friend recently keeps trying to come here. I'm not ashamed that I'm poor, I just am not trying to have anyone over because there's nowhere for them to even sit and chill. I share a room with my mom. What should I do, she keeps perstering me and I'm getting stressed.

Maybe you could have them walk home from school with you? Stop off at each others' houses, get changed out of school clothes/drop off your bags, and then go on to do something else (not at anyone's house), e.g. go for a walk around town, looking at clothes, or something.

That way they will see the outside, and probably guess that coming over isn't really a feasible idea.

You shouldn't be ashamed you're poor, that's right, but you should somehow get them to understand it's not possible for you to chill at your place comfortably.

I had a somewhat similar issue with friends growing up, my mum and step-dad moved house almost once a year for about 7 years because they would rent a house at a discounted price (not sure how) and then move out when the rent went to its original price. So I couldn't really make friends with the kids who lived on the same street, as my time there was limited time there, and the kids at school (usually I was still in distance of the school I was going to, so that wouldn't change) had to get used to different addresses. Luckily there was room to chill, some weekends, but the houses were made for 2 adults and 2 children, but when my step-dad's 2 children were around, it was cramped.

Hey! If your friends like you they like you for what you are. If where you stay makes a difference in their friendship, then it's better not to be their friends. But always be honest. Don't pretend something that you're not.
