Try using lowercase, all caps is perceived to be shouting. I have no idea if your parents are right because I have not heard their side of the story.

To be honest it really isn't hard in these days of modern communications to send word to your mom in advance

I understand that your angry because you were grounded. But you really have to calm down. Your parents were neither in the right or the wrong. Yes, your aunt should have told them that you were trying out and needed to stay after school. But it isn't your aunts responsibility. You should have told them, this way they would have heard from you and known. You could have left a note, or called, or whatever you needed to do to let them know from you personally. AFTER you cool down, go and talk to your parents rationally and let them know that you did infact tell your aunt and she was supposed to pass the message along. They may say the same thing as me, but they may understand and let your grounding go. Maybe now you know you should tell the people or person that needs to know directly instead of telling someone else to tell.


Always remember to put your happiness first.

Hi Britney,

I really think you should get your aunt to talk to your parents to let them know that she was supposed to tell them. Communication errors happen and people forget. Maybe if they hear the story from her they'll cancel your grounding situation. Just explain to them what you told your aunt. If they don't listen, then they're your parents and you'll just have to sit through the grounding and in future let them know yourself where you are.

It's understandable that they were worried, but not necessarily that they grounded you for it, but I can't say for sure because I wasn't there. I think you should just try and explain what happened to them again and contact them in future.

Nat.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

Were you supposed to tell your mom you would be late? I can understand if you were under strict rules to tell your parents if you would be late, and by telling someone else to do it, does not mean you can pawn the responsibility off on them. Honestly I can not vote in that poll because I donít know all the sides of the story. I would like to think that all parents try to do what they think is the best for their child. And it is a good general rule of thumb to always check in with your parents if you are going to be later than expected. So where they wrong? I donít know, I would have to hear more of the story to know.
