Sorry about the late post. Yesterday was mothers day, and my moms birthday!
Alot of shows, and kids these days think that parents are “in the way” are “keeping you from having fun” (Here’s a big one) “Ruining my life” and “they don’t understand teens like me”.
First of all, those are lies. Your parents are never in the way, they just want to help you. Parents never want you not to have fun! ex. if it’s a birthday party, and your going to a friend’s house, and your mom or dad don’t want you to go, it’s not that they don’t want you to have fun, but it could be dangerous. I went to a friends party before, and me and my sister were BEGGING my mom to let us go! Well, she gave in. My sis took her phone with her. We had fun for a while, but then kids started smoking while parents weren’t watching, parents were drinking in front of kids! Bad music was playing. Thankfully nothing happened, but my sister and I felt VERY uncomfortable. We should have listened to mom.
Your parents never EVER, ruin your life! If they take away a phone, or anything, it’s for your own good. Remember they are your parents, and they don’t want you going down roads they went down. Most parents even let you have social media! If you’re complaining that they have their email on instagram, snapchat, WordPress, etc. Get over it! What if someone talks smack or cusses you out on there. They will be able to see it first and fix the situation. Also, be thankful that they are giving you a wordpress or instagram etc. they trust you enough to have it and not post junk, or talk to complete strangers, right?
Of course your parents understand you, they were teens/kids once to. Don’t ever say “You don’t understand teens like me” because it probably gets them annoyed, and gets you punished more. That’s totally disrespectful to.
A lot of shows for kids push these things ever so softly. Kids seem to think “Oh I would never say that”, but sooner or later, it gets so stuck in your brain, that it blurts out!
Whenever you feel like your parents don’t “love” you or don’t understand you. Take a look around! You have a house, clothing on your back, food at the table, toys, a room, and a mom and dad that willingly kiss you good night. They could be on a date night, and leave you home alone! But they chose to be with you, because they love you.
Colossians 3:20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
Proverbs 20:20 If one curses his mother or father, his lamp will be put out in utter darkness.
Proverbs 23:22 Listen to your father who gave you life, and do not despise your mother.
Happy Late Mothers Day! Happy Birthday Mommy!💛
