I do have sympathy. But only for your parents.<br />
Act like a juvenile delinquent, get treated like one. <br />
Do the right thing, and enjoy the freedoms and trust that go along with that.<br />
<br />
Why is it that some kids understand this in kindergarten, and some grownups never do? <br />
Oh well.<br />
Kudos to your parents for sticking to it and trying to help you grow up. I wish them luck.

Sympathy for being a spoiled child that seems determined to disobey your parents? You won't get it from me.

Best Answer

Here's an idea. <br />
Act like a sensible, trustworthy mature human being and your parents won't keep punishing you. <br />
For f@ck's sake it's not rocket science.

Best Answer

It sound like your parents are just trying to reach you in some way. If nothing else has worked in the past then this harsh punishment is all they feel is left. Sometimes it is tough love that will teach someone that somethings in life are not acceptable. This may seem bad, but my fiance was kicked out of his house at I think 15 years old for doing the same things you said you were doing. He was homeless for 4 years. He has never seen his mother and father again. At least you have a home still.

Sounds like your parents have decided to turn to "tough love" don't mistake it for anything else, it is indeed LOVE, they have you long term concern and benefit at heart.<br />
<br />
It also sounds like you do things that you know you really shouldn't. Its not a surprise to you that if you stay out late, skip school, swear or sneak out you get in trouble. <br />
<br />
I know how hard it can be to forego doing things you think are fun, but you also need to weigh those choices with the consequences you'll have to endure. Its called being a responsible adult. I presume that you would like to be treated like an adult right? well, that means you have to act like one, and sometimes that means doing what you HAVE to do, rather then what you feel like doing.<br />
<br />
Imagine if your dad decided he would rather play golf all day rather than go to work. What if your mum decided she would rather spend all day with her friends. Hopefully, you can see where this is going. There wouldn't be money to pay the bills, and there wouldn't be food on the table. You wouldn't have TV, clothing when you needed it or other things. The point is, everyone in a family has a job to do. Yours happens to be school. In order to perform your best you have to follow the rules. Think what would happen if your parents did what they were supposed to do, but didn't bother to do their best. Meals might be prepared, but maybe only the raw ingredients were set out, or the food was over cooked. What if you dad did go to work, but didn't do his best? <br />
<br />
I hope you can understand this. Sometimes, to understand things better, you have to look at things from the other persons point of view. What would you do, if you were your own child? I know its easy to say I'd let them do what ever they wanted, but if you think about it, you know that just wouldn't work out long term. I'll bet if you start seeing things from their vantage-point, you'll make an effort to change.<br />
<br />
Hopefully, they are the type of parents who you can talk to. Ask why want you to do certain things, in a nice way. tell them you are trying to understand and see things from their point of view. Some things may not have a good explanation. Just know they have your best interest at heart.<br />

dude ur lucky one time when i was bad my parents decided that it was better if we just left the place i was being bad ... three moves and a lot of yelling later i changed my ways ... oh and not to mention the beatings from slippers and kitchenware lol u have it pretty good so might as well just grin and bear it

Best Answer

Yeah, my initial reaction was pretty much what everyone else's has been.<br />
<br />
But, in terms of sympathy, here you go; put up with it to the letter for a couple of days to let them calm down and prove you can co-operate. Then ask them at dinner whether they can let you off the "locked in your room" part (which does seem harsh) as the smoking happened before they explained the new rules to you. If it doesn't work, continue being the model of respect and decency and repeat the request every few days.

Best Answer

Oh, and I shouldn't have to say this, but if you're in this trouble for sneaking out when grounded, maybe don't try to sneak out this time, huh?

ow you poor thing

Best Answer

I believe your punishment is too severe for the crime<br />
Staying out late, swearing and smoking are fairly minor misdemeanors <br />
You shouldn't skip school though<br />
Your parents mean well but deprivation of liberty is not very nice<br />
Plead guilty to the lesser offence of being a dufus and try to negotiate a reduced sentence<br />
If you are a middle child of three you should be let off altogether

You don't need sympathy, you need a kick up the arse. Please consider the possibility that you're acting like a stroppy child. You will get to do whatever you want when you've shown that your decision making skills and internal discipline are good enough. Work on them and quit complaining until you're truly ready. It's not about age, or about parents trying to ruin your fun. I've been there, not too long ago either. I know it feels like you're being targeted and I sympathise with the feeling of helplessness and difficulty that you're experiencing but if you aren't able to act like a decent human being with respect for authority, internal discipline, and able to make sensible decisions, you'll be on lockdown to try to force it into you. I don't think that's the best method to do that, but I can't say I know the situation.
