"My best friend just invited me to go to Six Flags with her. I was so excited, but when I asked my dad, he said I couldn't go. He had a long day at work and he was tired when I asked him, so it probably wasn't the best time... he flipped out and stuff. I'm convinced that he thinks I'm not responsible enough to go, but I am! He and my mom are normally cool about this kind of stuff so I'm really mad. What can i do to convince them I'm responsible enough to go? Help! I only have two days until she goes!"
And M Girl's answer is:
"I hear you girl, that's a bummer. It's rough when a friend invites us someplace but our 'rent don't want us to go. I think your instincts are right that you probably approached your Dad when he had many other things on his mind. I know when people ask me anything when my brain is that jumbled, I'm bound to snap. So for the future I would try to bridge these conversations at a better time. Moving forward, you can ask both your parents about why they feel as they do, and even if you don't get to go this time, you can understand better for the future!"
