What are you outlooks on parents fighting with their teens by yelling and the teens getting grounded for it? Topic: What to do when you forget your homework
May 23, 2019 / By Fae
Question: Okay, so me and my mom just got in a fight because i forgot my history book because i didn't think i would need it. So she started yelling at me but she says she's not yelling, she just "raising her voice". (that's a load of crap) Im 14 and she just took away all my privileges because i was yelling back at her when she started yelling at me first. What do you think about that? I think if a parent yells then they should expect a kid to yell back. Have you every seen a kid talk in a regular voice when their parent(s) are yelling at them? Honestly. What should really be done here? P.S. I'm on the computer because i have homework and since im on here i thought i would post this. Thanks for reading and hopefully replying. I would like to show this to her and make her re-think things. I didn't say anything rude or disrespectful to her at all, i was just explaining my part.

Well, what exactly did you yell? If it were me, I would pay more attention to the words you said than the volume at which they were spoken. Could you have said something rude or disrespectful? If that's the case, she's justified in taking away some privileges. I have always tried not to "raise my voice," in part because it always escalates as you just described, and in part because the louder I talked the less my kids heard. Of course, there were times when I lost it and started yelling just like my kids, but I usually managed to calm down and apologize for doing that. It always worked. When we talked quietly, we usually had a productive discussion.

Comfort Originally Answered: Teens: Do you think that young teens ages from 13-14 know what love is?
Nope. I KNOW we don't (I am 14). When my friends say they're in love I laugh. Not to be a female dog but because they're being dumb. :)

I'm kind of torn on this one. I look at most kids that age today, and what you said is true. Most date around because they're taught they should. But then I remember myself when I was 14, and I'm sure I fell in love. It's two years later, and I've still never felt the same way about anyone else but him. I'm not completely over him, yet I haven't seen his face in over a year. He wasn't even my boyfriend, not even close. But I guess that doesn't matter. I mean I don't know- Maybe some would argue that it wasn't really love, since we never had anything close to a real relationship? But I just know that years from now, I will still remember him as the first guy to give me "butterflies" by simply standing in the same room.

I know you don't been to be offensive in any way with your question because a ton of people ask this. I've only had one boyfriend and we dated when we were 13. Trust me, I've never been happier in my life when I dated him... we spent lots of time together, been through many fights, and even considered our future plans together. It was so sweet and very fun. But the thing is, I felt like it was Love, it ... was something I have NEVER experienced before. Especially the burning sensations in my cheek when something oh-so-sweet was spoken between us. I often wonder this, too... if it was actual Love or just a little puppy dog thing. He was my first, so who knows. But when people ask this question, it makes me feel as if the relationship I had with him was nothing of true importance, and that I just completely wasted my time. It makes me wonder if he felt the same way I did about him. He had dated a ton of girls, but I felt like we shared the same compassion. I also wonder if there's any hope for us teens... is this 'Love' thing just a joke, or do we really want to (or can we) experience what it's really like? When people ask this question, it sort of upsets me because maybe what I had with my now...THEN boyfriend was pointless, and nothing to cry over. I agree with you that there are some kids out there that just date and date and they make it seem like it's all a popularity contest. Some people don't have their first relationship until they're like...18. Do you think they know what true Love is just because they're not a teenager anymore? I know you didn't intend any harm in this question, but this was just my 2 cents. And... my ex boyfriend and I ended up going out for over 18 months (a year and a half) and to me, that's amazing progress for teens. And no, we never had sex. I have friends now that have been dating for over a year, too.

my mother is the same way. when I explain things to her in a regular tone she getting then a chainsaw going. it's hurts me so i yell back to prove a point but the crazy thing is she keepin bringin old stuff up that happen years ago. I guess that's how they are. just listening to her first then explain yourself when she finish.

Berniece Originally Answered: Teens, do you have overprotective parents?
YES! I DO! They didn't let me go to sleepovers with close guy friends [[I told them he was gay so I could go]], they always wanted to know who I was talking to && hung out with, they always need to know eher I'm going && who I'm with && if they don't like it, I can't go. I got used to it, but recently, I got a boyfriend. Now they won't let me do ANYTHING! Even if it's not even with him. My friends && I were gonna go to the movies/town but my rentals wouldn't ket me, he wasn't even gonna be there. Then we were all gonna go to the circus yesterday, parents said no again to that. I asked why. apparently I've been 'bad' but I havnt even. Then they said I hvant been focused on my school work && such; but this hasn't made them stop me doing things before... GAHHH!
