Hi there, I'm kind of frustrated at the moment with my parents.
My parents are going on holiday next month. I'm really annoyed since they don't trust me to stay home alone, and so my Mother has organized for me to go and stay with one of her friends. I really don't enjoy going there and don't identify with anyone there. The house is always a mess and I can't stand mess. I just don't enjoy it there.
Anyway, so I asked if I could just stay home instead, but my parents both said no. They said I wouldn't be able to look after myself and that I'm not "mature" enough. The only thing is, and it's something they seem to have forgotten to notice, is that I can stay home alone at my age.
I've tried pointing this out to them, over the past few months I've really picked up around the house. I used to lose my temper a lot, but now I'm much calmer.
I don't know how I can persuade them to let me stay home alone. All I want is one chance, and it doesn't matter how many times I tell them this, they will not let me stay home alone.
Please help me?
