    So, I woke up this morning and the first thing I hear is my mom rambling nonsensical bull**** about my desk because there's a piece of chocolate and a bottle of water.. Then, there's no food except a bunch of candies and water.. Geeze, no breakfast. I'm already 15, and I should have control over my hair-- but no, my parents wants total control of it.. It's getting cold here and I don't want to get my hair cut out.. They still insist.. I took a bath, then when I returned to my room I saw my decent computer replaced with a crappy one. A broken mouse, a broken keyboard and a CPU full of viruses from my dad's porn collection. THEY TOOK MY DECENT COMPUTER BECAUSE THERE"S NO VIRUS.. I'm pissed right now.. I'll buy a laptop--that's my way of saying **** you to my parents.

    yyuup. Sucks to be 15. They cant make you cut your hair. What are they gonna do? Force you? CHILD ABUSE I SAY!!
    Exploit the porn collection. Contact social services (or the government agency for child care people..) and show em all the porn they gave you. [​IMG]

    Im mean i know. [​IMG] It sucked for me to be 15 too but somehow it passed. Best thing is to try to bargain with them. "If i get good grades... then can i..."

    I don't see how it being cold is an argument for not cutting your hair..

    Sounds pretty bad. Have you tried talking to them? I know that probably sounds stupid, but actually making them talk to you civilly usually helps. They probably think they're doing the right thing, you need to show them they're not. Ask why they took it and make them give a proper reason, and if you bought it then you could ask them to give you the money back.

    and dont be a coward to admit that you reacted in the wrong way. (if you yelled at them or something) I never did (i never wanted to be wrong).

    Communication is key.

    Who cares what your parents do. The thing is, their your parents. Think about it, your mom carried you in your womb for how many months, then they fed you and clothed you as a kid and your talking shit about them cause they want to cut your hair? Stop being a brat and show some respect.

    Are you doing well in school? Do you do anything that you're not suppose to do? Do you do drugs?

    And we have just met the stupidest member of GBAtemp, hope you're happy.

    And the hair thing, they can't force you, its cold, you don't feel like getting your hair shaved off, fair enough. I let my hair grow in the winter, I only started cutting my hair short recently because its started going curly, I used to have long hair, my parents were fine with it. And the computer thing, I can't help you, most parents are complete fucking idiots when it comes to computers and take it back to get replaced when it gets a virus or flag it as "broke". I'm lucky that way, my parents are cool.

    Unless you're failing (properly failing, not just got a C in a physics test), going off the rails and doing drugs, then they should get off your back.

    Yes, pretty much above average. No. No. I think she's just mad because my dad didn't fix the broken pipe last night.

    sinkhead pretty much said what I would have recommended you do. Sit down and explain to them why your hair and your computer mean alot to you.

    Keep in mind though, they are your parents. If they don't agree with your argument and decide to make you cut your hair, or don't give back the computer (which I'm assuming they bought), then you just have to live with it while you're under their authority.

    Contrary to what the kiddies above me may say, what Jhongerkong said is right. They are the ones spending the massive amount of time and money, and a good portion of their lives, raising you. Unless they're actually being abusive or providing an unsafe enviroment, show a little gratitude.


    Hair provides insulation for your head.

    Well said.

    Its a shame that this thread is full of rebellious 12 year olds.

    Especially when said 12 year olds are trolls like Hiratai and flai

    People you aren't helping any! *sigh*

    Seriously, Valmanway, have a decent conversation with your parents.
    If you can calmly explain why you don't want to cut your hair and ask why they've taken your computer, you could get somewhere.

    And if your mom is pissed off at your dad, give that a day [​IMG]

    Theres a difference between stating a point and being a troll. All I was saying is that you shouldnt take your parents for granted. You on the other hand are just a troll.

    Do everyone a favor will ya? Get off gbatemp and hit puberty when you come back, mkay?

    Id think an idiot 12 year old could understand that. Although im probably overestimating this one...
