Life with a pimp can be better than life at home because at home life is chaotic. You'll never know what time you're going to eat. If your parents are using drugs, if your parents have mental illness, you don't know what's going to happen next. There's no structure in your home. There's no specific time to do anything. You could behave well and still be punished. You could behave badly and you could be sexually abused and then rewarded. With a pimp, you know what is going to happen next. Being with a pimp is as rigid as being in the military. There is a specific set of do's and don'ts. You know what time things are going to happen and you know what behavior is expected in order to be rewarded.
