How do you convince your parents to let you go on a 4 day trip that's 1389 miles away from home?(It's school sponsered.)


Hey girly! When asking for something like this, it's important to show your parents how responsible you are. Maybe make a deal with them. Like, you'll take on new chores to help earn the money to go, and prove that you're responsible. Or, make a power point or other presentation to show why you want to go, what the benefits would be, and why they should let you go. They'll be impressed if you put in the effort Smile

my mom hates my dad... but my dad is so sweet... its awful to see them fighting. she hates him because he lost his job in Texas and then got one in Minnesota and moved there, then my sister and I moved up here... she blames him and i dont know what to do...?


Girlie, hate is a strong word. I'm sure your mom is angry, but she prob doesn't hate your dad. In this economy, it's easy to let things like losing a job or tight finances sway your emotions. The best thing you can do is to stay out of it, and not take sides. They need to work their feelings out themselves.

My mom is really strict about what i listen to. Like she won't even let me listing Last Friday Night by Katy Perry ?? And i'm 13 !! How can i get her to let me listen to more stuff ?? It's not fair bc everyone my age (including me) likes that kind of music and i'm not even allowed to listen to it !!


Hey babe,

It might be worth chatting with mom and - leaving out those "But everyone else is doing it, mom!" arguments - explain to her that the radio is everywhere and you're going to hear this stuff around. Tell her that there are certain types of music and certain artists you know she wouldn't be comfortable with, so you'd be glad to stay away from them. But try asking her, since you're growing up, if you might be able to run a new artist/album/song by her before you listen in the hopes that she'll be a little more lenient. Make sure you let her know that, just because you listen to Last Friday Night, you won't go crazy and have house parties with alcohol! You're mature and you know the difference between what's in the songs and what's in your life. Assure her of this (and you might have to prove it over time before you win her over), but taking this step and calmly talking to her will really help her see it!

MOD MOD MOD my parents are so easygoing on my sister. if she gets a c on a test, they dont really think much about it. but if i get a b on a test, they dont think im trying. if my sis lays down and sleeps all day, then my parents dont exactly care, but i still do all the chores and even extras, but they still call me lazy. if my sis gets a few bad grades on a report card, then if she does better on the next report card, then my parents reward her. but if i get all a's, then they say 'good job' and thats it. i think my parents expect way to much out of me, and i dont know what to do to get them to lay off. any advice for a better attitude for me, and get my parents to be a little easiergoing on me?


Hey girl, you hould defenitely talk to your parents about how you feel. Make sure you stay calm and don't accuse them, just tell them how you feel. You should be proud of yourself for getting all A's and doing extra chores without anything in return! You go girl!

Mod Mod Mod!!!! I'm 15 years old and have a paper route. On Saturday mornings, I have to get up early to deliver them and the papers are really thick so my dad carries them for me. It's really embarrassing because he wears this big bright yellow bag that says "journal inquirer" with a bright orange strap. When we walk on the main road, people stare at us while in their cars and same when we pass people when their walking their dogs. It's so embarrassing, especially since I'm 15. My dad just carries the papers for me and hands them off to me for me to deliver. I dread Saturday mornings. It's bad enough I have to get up early, but it feels worse knowing that I'll be embarrassed. I want to tell him how embarrassing it is but I don't want to hurt his feelings. What should I do to stop feeling this dread I have every Saturday morning?


Hey chica,  I'm sorry, I guess I'm not sure what it is exactly that's embarassing you!  If it's the bag, well then maybe you can get him another one.  You can just tell him straight out that the brightness of it kinda embarasses you.  Or if it's being with your dad, and you think you can do it yourself, just let him know you think it's time to take responsibility and do it yourself.  But really, if it's just that people stare or look at you, try not to take it so hard.  People just have a tendency to look when they see someone, and they probably aren't thinking much of it!  I hope this helps at least a little bit!  xoxo
