Funny Parents

It’s funny how we always want our children to do something other than stare at gadgets all day but when they do, we begin to find it a bit difficult to deal with.

Let me give you an example. I recently began doing some spray paint art at home but it hasn’t been easy dealing with the parental objections. Why would there be objections?
‘Aah such a mess!’ ‘Don’t you have other things to do?’ ‘Your room is such a mess!’ ‘No, don’t start doing your stuff right now.’ ‘Why are you even doing this?’ ‘You have time to do this but not other things huh?’ On and on it goes so sometimes I sneak out into the garden before my mum realises and the times when there are no objections, I am pleasantly surprised.

It’s not that my parents dislike my new spray painting hobby, they just think it is a lot of bother. ‘Oh move your spraypaint box from my kitchen!’ ‘How much did all this cost?’ The funny thing is when I was just sitting on my bed, doing uni work, reading a book or browsing the internet then they would complain about me always being on the laptop. There’s no winning with them! Do other teenagers get this too?

I will tell you something quite funny though. They have slowly begun to be more accommodating and it’s because they know I am making a good use of my time. I overheard my mum saying ‘well it is better than sitting in his room all day.’ So what was all the fuss about before? Sometimes I think they just like to tease and tell me off!




In other news, I have received my first official commison which I am itching to do but sadly university and work gets in the way. Bring on the weekend!

Until Next Time

  1. Couldn’t be more true. My kids are all really creative, and I’m definitely an advocate. But when they want to start a project my brain screams “please no!”. What a world lol.

  2. I had a little chuckle at this. It took me back many years and my own teenage “mess making”. It had a funny ending in my case as, bored of my dad sitting “glued to the tube”, my mum finally joined in and added her own mess making macrame hangings – We actually had a lot of fun while feeling a bit guilty about leaving dad on his own a lot! lol!

  3. There most certainly is no winning whatsoever, when it comes to what you’re doing and what your parents say about it! Though for me it’s quite entertaining, as I tend to get more grief from my dear, dear(-ly irritating) brother. Ohhhh yes. I get a whole lot of “stop doing maths” from him. He said this earlier and we fell into a rather tasteless series of intellectual insults – we’re pretentious losers, you have no idea – where he insulted with Chemisty, whilst I settled for maths. It shifted into Latin/French, and unfortunately he won. *sighs*
    I can never win. No. We, as a teenaged species, can never win. And as you’ve rightly expressed, even when you go off and do something else, that’s not what they expected/anticipated either!
