My First Serious Argument with My Parents
I remember my first serious argument with my parents like it was yesterday. I got so mad at them because they took my phone away from me. Being a teenager that is all you really care about. I got in trouble a lot when I was younger. I got in trouble because I stayed out past my bed time, I always back talked to my dad, and I never did the chores. Like most teenagers that is expected, but my dad did not think so.
When I was still in high school my bed time was about ten o’ clock. I never obeyed my dad when he would tell me that. All I wanted to do was just stay out all night and hang out with my friends. He would always tell me that he was going to take away my phone if I kept coming in late. He would also get mad at the fact that I would stay up all night and text people when I was supposed to be sleeping. So one night when I came in late he was up waiting for me. He asked for my phone and I told him that he could not have it and that made him even madder, so he just snatched it out of my hand.
Back talking when I was younger was all I would do. I thought that I was so cool being a teenager back talking. Anytime he would tell me no or that I could not do anything that day I would get furious and just start arguing with him. One day when he told me no that I could not hang out with my boyfriend I got really and we got in a huge argument about it, and he took my phone away.
Chores, chores, chores. Nobody likes to do chores. My siblings and I had a chore chart that we had to do every day when we got home from school. If we didn’t do them we would lose something of ours until the next day. I hated doing chores after school because I was so tired and hungry and didn’t want to do anything but sleep. I almost always did my chore but he would have to remind me a couple of times, so one day he asked me and I said I would do it later and he got mad and told me to...
