I have raised 3 kids older than you. They made mistakes, they had consequences, that is hwo they learned. When you are a parent (hopefully) many moons from now, you will get to try your theories about parentling. LOL, I give you a three year old, and your ideas of parenting will change in an afternoon. Guaranteed. The thing is, we raise kids.... from birth. If you have to be reminded more than three times you are just being obstinant and immature. NO you parents should not have to put up with that, because their job is to raise you to be a responsible adult, not a bratty jerk. I am sure my kids have been mad at me many times growing up. Know what? My grandson is being raised just like my kids were. Guess looking back I did not do such a bad job after all.

Oh, how cute!

First, I remember 13, both my own experience, and having repeated the age twice with my sons recently.

I agree with the others.

1. You have no clue about life. Sorry, you Don't. You are barely into your teens. Get a grip. You think parents don't know that all you want to do is blow us off two or three times before you might consider responding? Good grief.

2. You are kind of a brat, if you want your parents to gently remind you "a few" times until you pull your head out of your ass and do as you are told. Having to tell a kid who WANTS to be treated as mature to do things multiple times pisses me off.

3. You presume to tell adults how to do something that most usf us responding here have already accomplished. My kids are older than you are. They both knew better than to attempt your reasoning.

4. GET OUTSIDE AND GET ACTIVE. If you just can't bear to be without your phone, play Pokemon go and leave adults to do the adulting.

lol How cute... a 13 year old giving parenting advice. You might not do a lot as a teen, but MY teenagers are very, very active and rarely do truly stupid stuff (fun stupid stuff, sure... all the time). Actions have consequences though and it's a parent's job to teach their child to be responsible and make mature choices... so that means sometimes the immature choices come w/ unpleasant consequences... because that is one way to help kids remember better for the next time... and is representative of real life.

Go ahead and get mad at your parents... but hopefully you also learn that they do what they do because they love you and want what is best for you in the long run and you will come to respect that even if you disagree w/ it.

I have to agree with the others. No 13 year old has any idea what life out in the world beyond their own life and home is like. As they said life is full of choices and consequences that go with them. And that is the whole thing in a nut shell. You just can not decide when and where an how you do things and how you will learn about them etc. Your parents job is to teach and guide you.

I agree with Jodi.
Don't come on here and give us parenting advice. I have 2 children older than you and there is no way I would be giving them 3 warnings. They get 1 or if it's really stupid and they know better then they just get punished.
Go and play with your friends instead of trying to give us advice about things you have no idea about. We have been your age and we are old enough to know how to raise our children.

And I'm a mother giving you some advice. You are 13 - we don't need you giving us parental advice on the internet. As someone who works with teenagers, I think I can reliably say that 13 year olds aren't great at making the best choices.

Secondly, you sound like you need some hobbies and activities.

Thirdly, you shouldn't require 3 warnings for anything you know is the wrong thing to do. Just don't do it, or stop after the first warning. Otherwise, you get consequences. Life has consequences for behaviour - life doesn't give you 3 warnings.
