Check these out, too...
And instead of encouraging me to make the right decisions and remember things, they turn to punishment like taking away my cell phone and iPod.
I feel kinda hopeless. I want to make them proud but it seems as though nothing will.
Sounds like you’re going through a tough time, girl. I remember feeling like my parents just didn’t get me, too. Often times, this is just a phase that you and your parents will eventually outgrow. But that doesn’t mean there’s noting you can do about it.
Often times what happens is that parents overreact to kids doing something wrong, and then kids overreact to the punishment. Perhaps your parents should give you a chance to explain yourself. And when they punish you, instead of feeling hopeless, perhaps you could try to explain yourself more calmly.
Don't just get angry and frustrated, but try calmly telling them how you feel. If they understand that you want to make better decisions, and that negative reinforcement is not having their desired effect, you can come up with a solution together that involves positive reinforcement.

Ok so me and my stepdad and mom have been fighting a lot lately. I also wanted to spend more time with her and be able to talk I her more,I told her and she said we would. Nothing has changed I told her that last year and I keep trying to tell her but she doesn't listen, she actually started talking and hanging out with my step dad more! my mOm married my stepdad when I was 3 do we were kinda close. My mon always has put my stepdad before me in anything.he makes fun of me a lot and she knows and does nothing about it. I try talking to her but she always finds a way not to. I was thinking about moving with my dad but he's really selfish and my stepmom is really mean and doesnt like me I don't know what to do HELP!?!?!,
You need to find a way to force her to sit down and take you seriously on this. It may involve going to your Dad or your Stepdad as an outside force. Let her know just how much you want to do this and that with the way things are you wonder how much she really cares about you, that you just want to be closer to her. Jordan S.
