Talking to parents

I stay at two places each week

my home 4 nights

and at a respite friends house 3 nights

at the respite place, there is a mother, a father and 3 children aged 18 mths, 4 years and 5 years

they love me dearly

i consider them more my family than my actual family

i have my own Netflix at their house

thefather (let’s just call him roger (not his real name))

roger finds out that I have been watching 13 reasons why

he says to me that I’m not allowed Netflix at their house for two weeks

then he says to me 

“you have until Friday to talk to your Mum about it”

”we will be calling her on Friday night to talk to her too and if she says that you haven’t talked to her about it you aren’t allowed Netflix here for 2 months.”

 

how do I talk to my mum

she is going to kill me 

What do I say

How do I talk to her?

 

idk what to do

im scared

 

Re: Talking to parents

Hey there @Jesssister2001
Sounds like it could be a difficult conversation, and it sounds like your a bit worried about how to approach it.

Maybe you could start by letting your mum know that you need to talk to her but it may be something shesnnot entirely happy with but you want her to hear you out.
I would alo explain why you felt interested to watch the show and what you've learnt or ho you feel about this.
It might even be beneficial having a similar conversation with Roger

There has been a lot of for and against publicity about 13 reasons why so I can understand some parents may feel its inappropriate for young people. I think the best idea is to be honest and and hve an open conversation. Does this help at all?

Remember you're amazing just as you are Heart

Hey thanks so much this has given me so much more insight on the whole situation I am actually feeling a lot more confident to talk to my mum and I think I will have a conversation with “roger”
Thanks again

Re: Talking to parents

@Jesssister2001 I'm sorry to hear that things didn't go well. It sounds like this is distressing for you. Do you have anyone else that you can talk to?
