10 Ways to Show Your Parents You Are Responsible ...


I hated not being able to do what I wanted as a child.

I’ve always been quite independent and wise so being told what to do and stopped from going out drove me mad...2

Luckily, it didn’t take me long to prove to my parents that I was responsible enough to be treated like an adult.

Are you having the same problem?

Here are my top ten ways to show your parents that you are responsible.

1. Talk to Your Parents about What You Want

Tell them about your dreams, and your aspirations.

Not just seeing Lady Gaga in concert and going clubbing, though!

Let them know you are thinking about your future and what you want to do with your life.

2. Do Chores

Yes, they are boring and you could use the time doing something else but think about it from your parents' point of view.

Doing chores shows them that you know you have responsibilities and can deal with them and also shows good organization and time management.

3. Study Hard

Getting good grades at school is important.

Even if you study hard later and get an amazing degree, employers will still want to look at your GCSEs.

They are incredibly expensive to retake, too!

Whatever course you are on, study hard for your exams and get extra credits if you can.

If you aren’t managing your current responsibilities, why would your parents give you any more?

4. Avoid Childish Words

Act like a grown up and remove all excessively childish or swear words from your vocabulary.

Also, avoid silly lies.

Avoid “duh” or anything similar...

while it might feel new and cool to you, your parents will have said the same words or very similar and will subconsciously link you to their childhood.

Sure it's okay around your friends but act mature in front of your folks.
