Subject: My Parents
Question: Hey, I`m 14 and its summertime. I got nothing to do whatsoever in the house. I asked to get a job and my parents say no, so I guess I just talk on the phone.
So am on the phone all day, and it comes 11, I have to get off. They think its bad talking on the phone at 11. Can you tell me is it fair that talking at 11 is bad, because I either way I always end up sleeping at 3 or 4 in the morning. Thanks, Reply ASAP, because I want to show my parents this.. =D
Answer: Dear Kathrena:
You 14 and you parents let you stay up until 11:00 p.m.? Why don't you ask you parents if you can volunteer somewhere? Find an organization that helps other people and see if you can do something good with your time.
As far as the phone is concerned you state you talk on the phone ALL DAY long. Why do you need to keep talking after 11:00 p.m.? You mean you haven't run out of things to say by then? Sounds like you could be a talk show host when you grow up! :)
Life is good when all you do is talk on the phone all day. Appreciate this time in you life. Think about how great your parents are to allow you to talk on the phone all day long! Start making a list of all the things in your life you feel grateful for and then read them each day. You will find your life will change dramatically.
