Teen with no phone (strict parents)Watch
- Political Ambassador
A lot of people suffer from problems online: bullying, peer pressure, theft identity etc. There are many reasons why social media can ruin a person's life, it just depends on you as an individual.
Hide it under your bed like an inmate and she'll never know!
it's not your opinion; it's how you talk. you talk about it being the downfall of your life but you're so young that calling something the downfall of your life doesn't make sense. also you can't have an unpopular opinion and also claim that many people are of this opinion in the same sentence because that defeats the purpose of your initial point, that it is 'unpopular'
I just feel like I'd be better academically if my parents were strict like this.
Hi, so im a 15 yr old girl. My parents took away my phone for no reason about six months ago, when quarantine first started and now I have summer vacay and Im not in touch with almost everyone. Even when I did, I wasnt allowed social media. It gets kinda annoying at some point and lonely when you have basically no social life. I am not allowed to leave my house to meet anyone. If someone wants to meet me, they must come near my house and honestly thats really not fair to the person. Im not allowed to date or anything. Friendships dont really last if you’re not talking to them at all. Ik Im making a big deal outta this but honestly im going crazy during summer when my parents are working and i have no one to talk to etc. I only meet one person who lives near me. How can I make this situation better? Any advice would be appreciated!
My solution back then was to throw a tantrum, openly rebel against my parents and fight them whenever I had the opportunity; whether that be through sh*t grades, cursing my parents, openly dissing my aunties and uncle's to destroy my parents rep etc etc. I wanted all the smoke back then - likewise as a effect of my rash behaviour I got the relevant beatings. Ultimately even a cat is going to fight back when pushed into a corner.
You have to take action and then (and only then) will what you want be taken into consideration, as no sane man wants to deal with such a hassle (yourself) for a long period of time.
