I struggle to turn me feet

so basicly I can't really turn my feet for like a mohawk turn and a t stop. when I try a t stop (with my right foot turn perpendicular behind the left foot) my right foot is barely diagonal and isn't really helping me stop. has anyone got any tips on how I can improve this?

Would suggest looking at the various Learn to Skate programs that are available at most arenas or rink facilities.

You will learn the basics, how to find appropriate skates, equipment and about off ice training.

Can you do that off the ice? See how your hips open up.

What's with this super generic advice I've been reading from you recently?

Keep doing whatever you can. Reach as far as you can each time you try it. It may seem like you can't reach and won't be able to reach but every time you turn your foot you are in fact stretching out whatever it is that needs to be stretched. It took me maybe a month of skating 3-4 times a week with occasional practice at this to go from being able to open my foot 45 degrees to a full 180 degrees. Keep at it, the reach will come.
