One weekend gone, another trapped. - March 9th 2009, 12:13 AM

My parents will let me go and have a great time one weekend and then the next they say "No, You have to stay here!"

I dont get that.

For example, today.

I've had a great weekend hung out with my friends at a street fest on friday then spent the day with my boyfriend saturday.

Then a friend asks me if i wana go to a St. Patties party next weekend.

When I ask my parents if i can go they say "No you've been gone all weekend, next weeknd your staying home, we're going to the neighbors for a party, your friend Makayla will be there; you can hang out with her."

Then i argue back (which every teen just can't help but doing) "Oh so I have to sit on a couch haveing akward conversasions with a girl that doesn't even like me, and personally I can't stand and watch all the adults have fun drinking their brains out. Greeeeat, fun night"

Then my mother screams at me how I'm a selfish brat and storms out of the room.

I think she hates being wrong.

What do yall think, Their being a-holes or i'm selfish?

I think it's justified IMO, if your out every weekend, then when will she ever get the chance to spend some time with you? Or are parents made out to be mean because they want to spend time with you?
The best advice I can give is grow up, I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but she's your mum, her house, and her house rules, you need to respect that. And it seems that you also need to learn that things very commonly don't go as you planned.
Once again, sorry if it seems harsh.

Hey Jamie, I'm not sure why your parents aren't letting you go out with your friends this weekend, but I can somewhat understand where they are coming from. At least you got to go out last weekend, right? That's better then nothing. I don't think you should get all heated up at your parents because they won't let you go out every single weekend, they still gave you the privilege to hang out with your friends last weekend, at least you got that, even if you can't slip by with it this weekend. Maybe your parents will let you go out even more if you show them that you appreciate the time they do give you out with your friends, instead of getting so angry when they say no.

Arguing will rarely get you what you want. Try to discuss it. If she yelling let her just talk in a normal tone. If she still doesn't see reason then you can move on to something different.
