    My mum would be pretty disappointed if I never had settled down and had a baby. In fact she's been casually mentioning wanting to be a grandparent since I was 15, which is pretty weird.

    If I got myself addicted to hard drugs.
    If I committed a crime that they didn't see as justifiable. I'm sure my mother would forgive me for certain violent acts to people who deserve it lol although she would be disappointed that I was dumb enough to get caught. haha
    If I didn't do my best at Uni they would be a bit disappointed as in their eyes I'm a genius :rolleyes:
    Getting pregnant. Mainly for the above reason (it would/could affect my studies) and also because my mum really does not want to be a grand mother yet as that means she is old haha

    Nothing realistic would make them disown me. They would just simply be disappointed for the above, but I expect most parents would be.

    Well, I think if i got pregnant, my mum would totally freak out. She already knows i drink, used to/still occasionally smoke... would be terrified if i got a tattoo i think, but i;m also against them (not really against them, as much as i couldn't stand the pain) so that's covered. Probably if i got into drugs, that would make her want to kill me Other than that, she's always supported me in my decisions concerning my education and has never said anything about my grades.
    My father doesn't care.

    No matter how controlling or laissez faire your parents are, there will undoubtedly be something that you do that will make them thing of you in negative terms - whether it's simple annoyance or being disowned completely - what actions, behaviours, or beliefs will make your parents dissapointed?

    For me, although my parents aren't at all controlling and don't interfere in my life in nearly every part. Yet I know they would definitely be dissapointed in me if I did/and they they found it I did illicit drugs; if I was homosexual and came out to them they would be pretty upset; they'd also not be too happy if I got some girl pregnant.

    The only thing I know they'd be very pissed off to the point of perhaps disowning me would be if I got a tattoo, sounds silly but, my parents have very strong feelings against tattoos - for various cultural, religious etc. reasons that I won't go into.

    They'd also be pretty pissed of if I had children and decided to raise them out irreligious (as in not Jewish), they wouldn't mind if I went out with or married someone who's not Jewish but, unfortunately for them they're going to be a bit miffed when I raise my children secular - they see it as "letting Hitler win".

    What about yourselves then?
    I think I have to agree with you on the children thing, except religion doesn't really come into play with my family . I am 17, and if I came home and told my mother I was pregnant, she would be so upset and dissapointed with me, that she could potentially throw me out. I think she would be dissapointed if I dropped out of sixth form too. However, my mother is on the whole really supportive of everything I decide to do, and one of the most common phrases I hear from her is: "At the end of the day, it's your life. You can live it however you please"

    They're pretty laid-back - they just assume I've done all those normal teenager things.
    Probably turning out like my brother would disappoint them - nearly 22, no job, no home, no qualifications, no ambition. And he never rings my mum who is seriously ill. A nice chap.

    don't know why people put up with children like you
    your parents must be so proud.. if they don't give a **** at least discipline yourself
    In a word; lolzers.

    Since when did I ever say that my parents "don't care"?
    I've taken full responsibility for every short-coming that I've ever had in my life, it's something you do when you grow up (talking of growing up, I'm assuming it's something you've never done seeing as you have to act like a tough guy via the Internet, presumably to make you feel better about yourself by attempting to [and in doing so, failing] belittle others).

    I smoke reefer because there are no ****ing reasons whatsoever that it should be illegal, and if there are reasons why it should be, then those same reasons apply to alcohol and smoking (similar reasons, not always the same). I explained and gave a very thorough argument concerning those issues towards my mum, who both understands why I prefer doing it to alcohol, and prefers my doing it as opposed to alcohol.
    When my parents found out that I was doing it a few years back during college then they went ape-**** at me (and for smoking; they found out at the same time), I don't **** about when it comes down to honesty). I told them I'd stop smoking weed, and six months later, I did.

    My dad smokes. That's not the reason I smoke, but it makes it a hell of a lot harder for them to be pissed at me concerning that.

    As for drinking; everyone who drinks has had funny moments similar to the ones I imparted. I don't drink any more because alcohol stopped agreeing with me, and I started getting aggressive when drunk. Hey, does that look like RESPONSIBILITY to you? Sure does to me.

    Concerning college; I have no problem admitting I ****ed up my first year due to drug use (although it wasn't heavy use, I sure as hell preferred smoking weed to being in a classroom. Having said that, there isn't a single black mark on my attendance record, so I must've been doing something right. Oh, look, our old friend RESPONSIBILITY has popped up again. Say hi to him, don't be rude).
    I ****ed up my second year of college because I was enjoying ragging my then-girlfriend too much to care about revising.
    All of that said, I only went to college to enjoy learning about subjects I enjoyed learning about, I never went for the academia, I went because I enjoyed it.

    So I don't know what tree you're barking up, but I fully accept what has happened in my life, and place it all at my own feet. But do you know what? I'm happy with the way I am and the way my life turned out. Maybe in a few years I'll turn around and think "I wonder what going to Uni is like?", but until then, I simply couldn't give a toss because I'm one happy mofo.

    And yes, my parents are very proud of me. So here, I made this "**** you" especially for you. Make sure you water it twice a day.

    get pregnant while still in school
    don't graduate
    get a tattoo
    marry too young
    cause a divorce (they said they wouldn't mind me getting divorced if it wasn't my fault ie abuse or adultery on the man's part)
    do anything illegal (they follow laws to the tee)
    do drugs

    as far as getting married or not, what career i decide to do, whether or not i have kids, religion choice etcetcetc they all don't care about so long as i'm happy, so i guess i'm lucky. and, honestly, all the things they said (except maybe do anything illegal - i've drunk underage and such) i would be disappointed in myself as well if i did them.

    Probably if I ended up in prison or something. My parents are cooler than me, tattoos and drug taking and young pregnancy wouldn't phase them.
