My parents are ruining my social life!

I love hanging with my friends, but I’m always missing out on stuff. My parents let me out with my friends at least once or...

Mod Mod Mod: I feel the same way. My parents check my text because I snuck to the bathroom to text. They don't let me wear makeup and they don't approve my friends because THEY wear makeup and text too much. Also they won't let me shave and I really need to. What should I do?




Hey girlie, ask them why they're doing what they're doing. If you understand their reasoning it will be easier for you to convince them otherwise.

Ok, My mom always complains I am anti social but when I ask if I could go to my friends house, or my friend calss and invites me over she always is all, you are so inconvinient and is ticked off the rest of the day. She also limits my phone convos to 20 mins max. Our bill isn't by minute (house phone) but just a flat fee. I also said if there was another call I would tell my friend there was one and get the next call. It doesn't fly with her. What do I do to keep my social life alive. I tried to have a talk with her. I asked "Are you busy because I need to talk to you." She said no. But when I started talking about the subject she said I was over reacting. I just told her what I have told you, but even less rude! What do I do to make her understand??




Hey! If she says you are anti social tell her  that you try to make plans but she says that they are inconvenient. good luck!

Mod mod mod my mom is really nice and supportive. She always takes my wishes into consideration, but I have a really hard time asking her for things. Especially stuff like makeup. I love experimenting with it, but only have a little, and wanted to ask my mom for some for Christmas. I just can't do it though. I don't know why. Is there a way I can be more forward with my mom?

 

Hey girl, I know it can be hard to be assertive and say what you want.  But if your mom is nice and supportive, she is a great person to practice speaking up to!  You can talk to her sometime when you are hanging out, or even when you are out shopping.  Tell her exactly what you told me - you are interested in experimenting with make-up, and you would like some for Christmas.  I'm sure she will be happy to talk to you about it!

my mom got me eyeliner for Halloween and my friends all agreed i looked pretty with it on so i asked my mom if i could wear it to school. she said no. i asked if i could wear it after school. she said no. i asked if i could wear on the weekends and she said no. i asked her why and my mom said said that she couldn't wear makeup until her freshman year but all of my friends wear makeup and i think its really unfair that i can't even wear it on the WEEKENDS!!!! i've talked to my makeup-y friend and she said try to give reasons why i want to wear makeup and i did that and my mom didn't give. all i can wear is clear mascara (so no one can see it) and lip gloss (which i wipe off within 5 minutes). what do i do?

 

It seems like your mom isn't going to budge on this one, so you don't want to push too hard to be able to wear makeup. You'll probably just have to wait until she lets you. However, you could say that if you were allowed to wear makeup, you could have her approve it before you go out to school or on the weekend. Or, you could offer to add on to your chores in exchange for being able to wear makeup, or something like that. Make sure you're grown-up and polite about asking, and if she says no, don't argue or keep bringing it up.

MOD MOD MOD! please answer this... im like the only kid in my skool without a facebook which makes it really hard to connect with friendsFrown iv tried to explain to them why i need it or could use it but there not listening to me at all... iv even bumped up my chores to see if that would help???? nothing is working... my friends say to get one behind there back but i dont want to get in trouble or break our trust??? what should i doooooo???????

 

Hey girl,

You're right - you should never go behind your parents' backs because it's important to keep a trustworthy relationship with your parents so that they can count on you and you can count on them. It also makes your relationship stronger. Of course, you don't want to get in trouble, either. Plus, you probably wouldn't feel good about logging on all the time and sneaking around.


 

Maybe the reason they don't want you to get a Facebook is because they don't know much about it. Maybe you could ask them if you could show them what it's like, and then have one of your friends come over to log on and show them what kinds of things you can do on Facebook. You could go over the privacy settings that are available and talk about the benefits of having a Facebook. If they are afraid of what you might post, you could offer to have them check up on your Facebook sometimes. When I first got a Facebook, my mom wasn't a huge fan of the idea of me getting one, but she did let me get one by using my middle name as my last name on the site and checking on it sometimes. You could ask if that would be OK. Good luck!

MOD MOD MOD!!! please answer this! well my parents dont think i eat and its so annoying! they think im too skinny when im rly not! and i like to have some noise in the background when i do hmwk so i have my tv on and they think its so bad and im only watching tv so they took it out of my room! im trying to keep my cool but i cant im getting so mad and i just got my first eighty(89) as a 5 week reading averageee! and worst of all they have to sign it! and this morning since my mom was in the shower when i went for the bus she told me to text her on the bus and i completely forgot! she called my school! and lately ive been going to bed very late (hmwk) so they keep yelling at me and they hear the tv so they get even more mad! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (sorry this was so long!)




hey! yeah i had the same prob. My mom always tried to force more food on me because she thought I didn't eat enough. Really I'm just a small person and get full quickly, and maybe you're the same way. Only you know if you're getting enough to eat, so remember to do that, but also tell your mom when she's being too pushy about it. If they get mad about the 89 that's ridiculous. It's a high B and nothing to be ashamed of. If you want to set your personal goals higher that's great but it's no where near low enough of a grade to get lectured about. Just tell them you did your best. tension with parents is hard but just let them know that lately you've been getting a lot of heat from them and that you aren't trying to upset them. Being a parent is stressful, but so is middle school. good luck!

MOD
How old do you think people(kids)should start wearing makeup?




Hey girl, honestly, I don't think most people need make-up unless it's for a special occasion. Natural beauty is just so much better. It really depends on your parents, though. I don't believe there's any right specific age.

Hey chica! Why don't you start writing in a journal about how you feel? It really helps to get your emotions out. Then who knows, you may read it in a month and realize how silly you both were being! Smile

Mod!Mod! My parents don't treat me my age. A ton of people I know have facebook, cell phones, and real email addresses. I don't have any of these ( I have a kiddie email). I have told them I don't want to be treated this way, but my mom just said, "people your age don't need a facebook page!" I am very frusturated. How do I deal?

 

 

Hey chickadee, maybe suggest creating a facebook page together, with your folks. That way, they can see exactly what you put on there, and they won't be as concerned. They can have the password too so that they can go on and check to make sure everything is ok every now and then.

Today I was waiting to go down to my Math class today at school when Cheyenne, a girl I know from my math class walked by me. She actually sits next to me! I said "Hi Cheyenne!" and she screamed "Get AWAY from me, Sophia!" and just ran off! I also sat down on "her" chair during Computer classes and she pushed me out of the way! And when I told on her she got in trouble! I've tried talking to her about it, but shes to ignorant to listen. I'm really getting mad. I can't stand her! I told my mom and she said to just ignore her. My dad and 16 year old sister Briana (I'm 11) both said to tell a teacher but I don't like being known as a rat! I want to yell at her, but I really don't feel like starting problems. What should I do? Please help!
~Sophia




Hey girl, your sister and dad are right. Let a teacher know. Don't fight fire with fire and yell back; just stay calm and alert an adult who will straighten things out.

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!!! My parents don't get me!!! Even though they have known me forEVER, they don't seem to be able to get it when im mad or upset to leave me alone. My dad yells and screams and swears, and my mom swears and yells because of my dad!!!! I feel like im in a war zone. When I drop hints to my dad he spazzes, and then I try to tell them and they still don't get it(about any part of the issue!)! I try sooo hard to not yell and scream and hit them...but my dad makes it so hard on me. Its not that hes a bad father, but he doesn't get me, and he just yells and doesn't do anything. I lost a BFF today, and I feel like I can't confide in them because i KNOW they won't understand what should i DO!?!?!?!?!

 

 

Hey chica, you should never hit your parents, that's not right. You should sit your dad down when it's just the two of you and talk about it. Tell him that you don't like fighting, and make a pact for both of you to refrain from yelling. You have to understand that it's hard for parents to understand sometimes. After all, you're in two totally different parts of your lives. But, you should give them some credit for at least caring. You should talk to them about your BFF. They don't have to understand, they just have to listen, and let you vent.

HE IS OLDER THEN ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! please help me. i cant do anything with out being copied!




hey! he's probably doing it to mess with you, so the best thing to do would be to ignore it. Sounds like you're more mature than him anyway. If you want alone time maybe get together at a friends house or take a relaxing walk to calm down. Good luck!

Ok, my mom will let watch pretty much any movie I want too, no matter what it's rated (there are some exceptions, of course)but when ever people are over she makes me go upstairs, like, the first time it cusses. It's super annoying. What should I do?




I suggest you talk to her about it! That will help you see where shes coming from and why she wants you to go upstairs during cussing. Plus she'll get to see your side of things. Good luck! xoxo kerra

MOD i started horseback riding lessons at the end of feburary and then stopped over the summer when it was really hot. They cost about $700 for 10 hours and i have 2 hours of lessons each week. My parents are asking me to pay for part of them and i made about $550 over summer but after paying for half of the first set i only have about $200 left for the next payment. How can i make some money while i'm still in school? (i can't get a part time job and i live in the country without a lot of people around) Thanks!

 

Maybe you could try having a yard sale — if there's a time when others in your area (if there are any) might be able to have one at the same time, so more people are drawn to your area. You could also look into babysitting: ask your parents if any of their co-workers or friends have kids that you could babysit. In addition, ask your parents if there are any chores that you can do in addition to any chores you already have to learn a little bit of extra money. Here's a good article to help with a few more creative ideas for earning money: http://www.girlslife.com/post/2010/08/08/cash-in-a-flash.aspx

i live in germany right now and i take the public transportation every where!! (In germany its not like only poor people take public transportation, EVREYBODY does. so they take care on their trains.) Anyways. maybe you could try taking buses places to your friends or car pool if your rents dont wanna drive you. juts dont give them an excuse to say no. ex: clean your room, have a way to get there and home from your friends.

MY parents take me pretty much anywhere to see my friends, but that's because we're all homeschooled and only get to see each other about once a week during the school year, and unless we organize a day never in the summer. And they all live out of walking distance from my hopuse (none of my friends live in my city, just the neighboring cities) my bf live 40 minutes away! It sucks, but we make it work Smile

MOD- My friend's mom just died. I'm not BEST friends with this girl (who's 16), but we are definitely what I would consider friends. The memorial service is in an hour, and I planning on wearing a fancy black dress that has blue and white flowers/leaves on it and a small black sweater and high heels. I don't have any ballet flats that'll work because of my narrow foot. It's either flip flops, or high heels. Is this too much to wear? Too overdressed?? It's the only black outfit that'll work.




Hey girl, I think heels are appropriate. If you'd rather wear flip-flips, that would be okay too. I think your friend will care more that you are there for her, rather than what you are wearing.

He sits next to me in bio(by choice) i gave him my phone number and we text 1-3 times a week. one day i was walking in a room and he held the door open for me. and tonight he wanted to call me(but i couldn't) so we are going to meet tomorrow morning so i can help him with his homework(idk if he really needs help cuz i texted him telling him i did my homework and he asked which homework i did and he said he wanted me to help him on it) and hes a sophmore and im a freshmen. what do you think???? and if he doesn't like me than what can i do tomorrow morning to let him know?? thanks <3

 

Hey girl, I think that's definitely possible. Tomorrow, sit really close to him tomorrow and flirt with him. If he flirts back, smiles a lot and gives you little signs he likes you, than keep at it! Maybe soon enough you'll be able to ask him to hang. =]

Today, I was harassed on my bus, because I don't know where babies come from and all of that stuff. Even my "Best Friends" joined in. I feel so weird now. Is this something you should know in eigth grade, or do I live a sheltered life? Also what should I do about my friends, especialy since one is my locker partner?
Thanks. Please don't tell me to tell my parents, because then everything would become super complicated...




Hey! I wish i could just explain it to you, but the truth is this is a conversation your parents should have had with you a few years ago. It's awkward, but you have to ask them about it because they can give you the real facts without confusing you. Good luck!

Help! My mom doesn't understand that it's not cool at all for me to shop with her! Whenever I ask if I can go to the mall with my friends, she says no, I should go with her instead. And she won't let me go alone! I don't see any of my friends shopping with their moms. How can I tell her nicely to let me go by myself/with friends?







Tell your mom that you want to try being more independent in your style and want to develop your own fashion sense while shopping, not hers!
