Do you have trouble talking to your parents about.. well, anything? Well, here are my tips.
Whether you want your parents to let you have a sleepover on a school day, get your ears pierced, get a dog, or just about anything else, it can be very hard to convince your parents to allow you.
Parents can be tricky to communicate with. They never seem to understand their kids. Oh, they say, “I was a kid once!” but then they go right ahead and ignore everything that you say to them. It can be very difficult, but yes, it is possible to talk to your parents and have them actually listen. Here are my tips on how to make it a whole lot easier.
1. Be mature
Parents are more likely to listen to you if you act mature. Mature, meaning not whining when they say no, not begging, being patient, and talking to them like an adult. When you act more mature, your parents will appreciate that and be more likely to say yes to whatever you are asking.
2. Prepare a speech
When you have something prepared to say to your parents, you sound much more ready for whatever you want to do. You have all your points set out, and all your ideas carefully listed.
3. Do research
Loko up some articles on what you want. If you want a dog, find the kind of dog that would be best for you and your family. Show your parents that you have done your work and are ready for this responsibility.
4. Write an essay or letter
Writing is a much easier way to collect all your information and your opinions. Make an essay or letter and give it to your parents.
5. Be prepared for them to say ‘no’
Yes, it may annoy you, but they do have a right to say no. And, the more respectful you are when they do say it, the more likely you are to get to do it another time.
