for example, when I go out with my friends, they always tell me that I have to be home by 10:00, and I have to obey them and go home on time because when I’m not on time there will be a consequence. Last month I went to my best friend’s birthday party and I was surprised that my parents allowed me to go out but I have to be home by 10:00 pm. I was enjoying my time at the party and I didn’t even notice the time and it was 1:00 am. I looked at my phone my parents have 25 missed call and I knew that I’m in trouble. I was grounded for 2 weeks and my mom confiscated my phone because I didn’t answer her phone call. I didn’t feel bad because it’s actually my fault if I was really aware of my time I wouldn’t be on that situation and I still love my …show more content…
My mom used to tell me in the old days they were more strict than today. Their parents don’t let them go out without any companion. They had to do their chores every day before they could go out, and their parents also picked the right guy for them and that is hard because being with a guy that they don’t love is totally unfair. I can’t imagine placing myself in that situation but my parents are using that rule to me and it’s so unfair for my part. For example, there was a time that I had to go to my friend’s birthday party, and my mom wouldn’t let me go out without any companion, so I have to bring my cousin with me to be sure that I went there and didn’t go some other place. I mean I’m old enough to go there alone without any companion with me. I just want to do my own thing and just be me. I want to be independent, and my parents just don’t get it. My parents are being strict because they are afraid of losing me. As I am their only child it’s their responsibility to protect me. Well, to solve this problem I will probably talk to my parents about them being strict and explain myself to them how am I feeling about them being strict. I will also prove them that I can be a good daughter, and I will gain their trust so that they won’t be as strict as before. I just want to live my life without

    The reason that I know that he never got over it is because every time I would invite him to come to my mother’s house for a birthday party or my high school graduation he wouldn’t come. Through my life and many others that I have talked to I know that socializing isn’t an issue with blended families. Blended families can be a good thing for the elderly because then they have more family to look after them. Also blended families are very common in society, but there are a lot of issues arising because of problems that come up. One that parents struggle with is making sure that their children don’t feel that they aren’t getting enough attention from the biological…

    I felt bad for being mad at them after what they did for me. I realized there are many kids all over the world that don’t get anything for their birthday. They do not get to spend it with their family and friends. Or not knowing when their birthday even is (thedailyviz.com). I also think that people should not overreact, like I did, when their birthday is not recognized at first because we should just be happy we get another year of life on the beautiful…

    Their father asked the kids to come see him even though their grandmother told him that he couldn 't have them until we were settled in. I was totally unaware of that, so I let him have them and ended up regretting it the minute I dropped it off. I just knew that something was wrong, and because I was stressed about it, I felt like I would be stressing out my friend and her parents at an already stressful time. Without going into too many details - I was told to have them home early by the grandparents, and I upset their mother because - well, an ex-husband who is an idiot was purposely going against her wishes - and it ended up being a super stressful night. At the end of the night, when the kids were dropped off, the father had the kids surround me and then asked me if he could see them more...after I had been told not to let him have them anymore.…

    They started to not see each other as often and sort of just focused on them more than family. For us cousins on that side of the family it really sucked for us because to me it felt like I was losing my family. Every time my dad and his siblings did see each other all they would ever do was fight on who would pay the bills from my grandfathers funeral or who would get what. My Aunt Debbie and Aunt Tammy both agreed that my dad could get my grandfathers ring and my Uncle Steve was very jealous but they all knew that my dad was closer to him then they all were. After everything was sorted out with my grandfathers things they all stopped talking.…
