Note for my parents about me being GROUNDED?

Note for my parents about me being GROUNDED? Topic: Help with homework for parents
June 20, 2019 / By Genista
Question: ok so i wrote my parents a note about why i have been so angry lately and why i think it is stupid that they grounded me. In the note i wrote about me taking naps afterschool because of me waking up at 5 in the morning every morning for early morning choir. I also included how i am so swamped with homework that i don't have time to do anything i enjoy and that is why i am up so late. Another fact that i brought up was that i was so annoyed with everyone making fun of me for liking this kid that everyone thinks is annoying and a dork. And i also wrote how it isn't fair that they are letting my older sister by 4 years get away with the same things that i do and she never gets in trouble for it. you would think she would know better since she is older. well now i am grounded and can't do anything i want. like i am not suppose to use the computer but i am cuz i want advice so help PLEASE!!! i am grounded for not going to bed on time, my attitude, and my grades

My friend, you have come to sort of a dead end when it comes to understanding the minds of a parent. Mainly because you are the age you are and they are expecting you to learn from your mistakes and grow wit them. They aren't doing the "grounding" to hurt you. It's mainly to help you not do the things that got you into trouble "AGAIN"! You do not like what you're going thru as far as the grounding goes, so take a page from that, and get your thoughts together better and write them down to sort thru them and solve them in order of most important and I bet you'll clear up a lot of your troubles and you'll be more organized to the point that one you start checking things off your list as you fix them or just forget about them, things will clear up and more time will open up. Love your parents, I bet they love you. Forget those kids and what they're saying and if you like that kid, let them know and go from there. You seem too young to have so many worries. Get a study buddy, perhaos that kid you like and get that school work and homework out the way. Remember, it's not going anywhere...like NIKE...Just Do It! Godd Luck and keep your Head up...It'll Be Alright in a little While...BELIEVE THAT! Peace!

I know being a teenager is rough at times. However, do you know how many teens have parents that couldn't care less about them, leave them to do whatever they want, and then when and if they get into trouble, don't do a thing to help them. It sounds like your parents are concerned about you and love you. If you want to resolve this situation, go to them and tell them that you are sorry, and that you will take the grounding without complaining, and that will try and keep the regulations better from now on. Do some call you a "dork". Do you know that the richest man in the world, Bill Gates, was called a "dork" and "geek" when he was in school. Do your punishment, go to bed on time, turn your attitude around to a more positive one,and start pulling your grades up. This is your future you are talking about. You may be unhappy right now, but you will be more unhappy when you are in your twenties, if you are washing dishes at McDonalds, or living on the streets because you havn't got a good education behind you. Change your thinking and actions, and you will find that your life will change for the better. Good luck Grandmother of 7, three of them teenagers.

You didn't mention WHY you were grounded in the first place. Your note mentioned a lot of reasons why you aren't to blame for anything, but you didn't take responsibility for your actions or suggest positive solutions to any problems. So there is no reason your parents should alter the grounding. So instead of ranting about how unfair life is, try to change it. Suggest to your parents things you can ALL do improve the situation, and be willing to take the lead yourself. Maybe they can get you a tutor; maybe you can transfer out of a class that is too hard for you. Maybe you can agree that a certain night is your "fun night", when you don't have to do any homework or chores, but instead get to focus on regaining mental and emotional balance.

Well, it sounds like you need to get your life organized. If you have too much going on, which a lot of young people do today, then maybe you need to back off some things so that you have a reasonable schedule. For a teenager to get up at 5 AM is super early because you really do need a full 8-9 hours of sleep at that age. That means you go to sleep at 9pm if not 8pm. If you are getting enough sleep, which I doubt you are, then that's fine to be very active, if that's what you want. You didn't say why you got grounded exactly, but my guess is you got mad, probably said things, or did something out of anger, but I'm just trying to pass on that anger is likely the result of a physical problem with too little sleep and free time/down time on top of having too much going on at one time. Let something go. Focus on your homework and focus at school and minimize that effort as much as possible. I'm not saying to do worse, I'm saying to work SMART, not hard. That doesn't come easily for everyone but you can work on it. Don't waste time with what doesn't matter, but the key is in recognizing what doesn't matter. Get yourself more focused and organized and free up some time so that you can relax and not be in constant "performance" mode. Some of that may be your parents fault, so if they are insisting on certain activities, you need to talk them down off of some things. It's good for young people to be active, but that has to be reasonable, not just activity for the sake of activity with no regard how many hours there are in a day. Best of luck.

At your age, four years is a big difference. Perhaps your older sister has other responsibilities to compensate for her ability to have other privileges. You have homework. That's reality. You don't get to do other things you want. Too bad, that's reality, too. Isn't choir something you want to do? Kids make fun of you for the guy you like. That's not your parents' fault. Start taking responsibility for your actions and choices and stop blaming others. You sound like a spoiled brat. Take your punishment and quit whining.

White paper, black ink. Keep it simple. If you want to make it look a little more interesting, draw a little mistletoe in the two top corners. Don't take away or distract from the main message. :]
