• My parents won't let me get a Nintendo switch!?

    So I got A's and B's on my report and no C's, but still my parents won't let me get a switch. My dad reckons that it will lower my grades and he said it's too expensive.

Also if I tell them that all my friends have it, they will counter it By saying that's is our family and this is how we do things. All they want me to do is study (which I already do) till my brain explodes :(

    I'm thirteen, my mum has smoked since before I was born. She doesn't bother to go outside or to even open a window when she's smoking and I'm in the same room. I have asthma, its never been very bad but I think the smoke is starting to mess with it, its harder to breath and when she smoking near me it hurts. She's tried to stop before but failed. Ever since I was little I told her it was bad for me and to at least not smoke when I'm in the room, I'm glad she can't smoke in the car with me anymore though, that was the worse. Doesn't she even care about me? I guess I could just stay in my room all day instead of coming downstairs though, that would solve the problem I guess.

    Best answer: She's a teenager, I raised one myself, just work with her, try communicating with her without the controlling , not saying you are controlling but just incase because some parents are crazy controlling. Let her choose what she wants to like and where and tell her she looks nice. I myself Love the color black... show more

Let her choose what she wants to like and where and tell her she looks nice. I myself Love the color black and white, I have blonde hair, ok blonde gray hair and black and white colors do look good on me, or at least I think. She's coming into herself and feeling the waters, not always great, and sometimes we have to put them back down a notch or two if it gets to far out of hand, like reminding them who is the mom and who is the daughter/son. . Don't take it to heart we mostly all go through this. Goodluck

  • Why do most people now only have 2 kids the most?

    Whatever happened to large families of 8 to 12 kids? You no longer see large families anymore. I heard that in the 1950's and before large families were very common. So what exactly happened?

I ve also had a rough couple of years going through school, relationships, and hanging out with the wrong people. Recently my parents went through my purse without me knowing and found something I shouldn t have had in the first place which I m not proud of but its something I want to leave in the past and I ve been trying to be more responsible and calm down on the partying. My parents are very religious, they won t even let me drink they think even a glass of wine will make me a bad person. Are my parents too strict?

I have asked her and she said she doesn't want one at all. She's closer to her dad and she's always complaining to him that she doesn't want it, it annoys me so much cuz she's doesn't appreciate what I'm doing for her. My husband says it's better to respect her decision, and he is upset at me for doing this. But I think that's just sh!t. I've already been working on it so I'm not turning back. But is it wrong to force her to have one? How can I get her to at least be happy about it?

She also says I clean too much and make guests uncomfortable when they are at our house because my face looks angry. My mom says once I turn 18 she is kicking me out and I should make other arrangements. I really don't want this kind of relationship with my mom because I love her and I don't want her to hate me because of certain things I do. Please help I don't want my mom to despise me for the rest of my life..

  • Is it weird that my father is 73 years old but still works as a lawyer?

    Best answer: If working makes him happy, and he can still do it, there's no reason to retire. Plenty of older people continue to work well into their seventies for the simple fact that they like what they do, or because they don't like the prospect of not having a job to go to.
