Angry I do it my way. - January 30th 2011, 03:48 PM

Just had an argument with my dad because of the way I do things. He was moaning about the way I put things away, just because they werent put away the way he wanted them to be. I know he's my dad and because of that he can tell me what to do and things, but honestly, I'm gonna' be 16 three months today, and I think I have some say in the way my life is run now.

I was also saying to him about how he knows nothing about me, because I don't think he does. He says he does because he listens when I talk to my mum, but in my opinion he should be asking me too. And then he said to me: "You go to school and come home, and when I ask you how your day was it would be 'oh it was boring'.." but I don't mind school, he just never asks.

I don't like the way he moans at me about everything and seems to think he knows everything. Sorry for writing a novel, I just needed a rant because I'm pretty annoyed at the moment, and I can't talk to him about it because he always thinks he knows best.

Hollie,

Hey there, sounds like there is some miscommunication going on between you and your dad. I think you should calmly try and tell him what it is he does that bugs you. Try to approach it in a way that he won't feel attacked. Told him all that you tell us. And the thing is, he might feel like he DOES listen, and he DOES care. And I know that is hard to think about, but it's true. If I were you, I would try and spend time with your dad a little more. Spend time getting to know each other, and coming to a neutral stand point. Tell him that because you are growing up, you feel you are able to handle more responsibility. And maybe for him to get to know you better, you can try and let him in a little more. It could really help.

Hope this helped!
