Wow, CW, my parents would have screamed a resounding "NO WAY!!" to going away with my boyfriend for so long at such a young age. Times have changed, I guess.

Now, don't everyone bash me for this post, ok? I am a Mom. Perhaps CW is mature beyond her years, I don't know. Take care, your trip sounds like a dream trip, to be sure.

I hope you guys aint saying we have a bad mother :mad: Shes a great mum, just really layed back! She did meet her BF a lot before hand and really trusts him and knows his mum. :mad: Shes NOT a bad mother :mad:

p.s. Chels is 18 this year anyway. So why not? A lot of kids who are like.... 8 years old or something travel on planes alone across the world, so why the big deal over this?

That was not what I meant either Abi :confused:
I was just saying that you two are lucky to have a mother like that. I would't want to trade my mom for anything, but I wish she could be more like yours at that point

A lot of kids who are like.... 8 years old or something travel on planes alone across the world, so why the big deal over this?I am not saying that your mother is bad, you are right, I don't know her. However, CW is still just 17 (and not 18 until Oct, BTW), and I have never known a teenager mature enough to handle playing the role of an adult, which she is doing by going on an unchaperoned, extended vacation with (I am assuming) a man who is of legal age.

And I am sorry, but this has little relevance to an "8-year- old" flying on an airplane. That 8-year-old is watched by the flight attendants, and immediately met by an adult at the airport. This situation does not concern me because CW is a child flying on an airplane, it concerns me because I fear that CW might be getting in over her head by immersing herself in an adult situation, when she more than likely, still has the mind of a teenager.

This attitude is not strict, it is wise and protective.

Oh, and Draco, sure, I would love to be able to take a trip like that...but my strong opinions on this matter have nothing to do with that, believe me.

Marianne, I would be embarrassed to admit that my parents allowed me to spend the night with my boyfriend before I was age 18.

Shandroid, everyones entitled to their own opinion, but im starting to find what your saying EXTREmly offensive! I know your trying to saying my mums bad, but times have changed, WHY shouldnt people spend time with their BF's??? My 16 year old mate stays at her BF's house every 2 days, that dont mean she's a **** and not a virgin! Leave my sister alone, none of you know her and none of you know her BF and none of you know my mother! I dont mind opinions, but im finding your opinions extremly offensive towards my family! I cant stand people who **** off other peoples family when they dont even know them!
And about legal age, my sister is of legal age to, and she aint been a virgin for over 2 years! So back off! Thats my sister and mother your abbusing :mad:

Draco
17-02-04, 16:02
I'd just like to say that in the 3 years I've known tcw, she seemed well balanced to me...

But anyway, this is sposed to be a positive topic...

Well i aint gonna argue no more. Just want people to remember, when she gets back shes gonna see this topic, how do you think shes gonna feel seeing what some of you guys have said? She's sensitive so that dont make it much better! Im at least gonna say something nice even if no-one else is:

Chels, i hope you havea great time with G, your a lucky girl! Ignore the people who are being abbusive, they're just jealous... like me! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif See ya in a while!

p.s. im borrowing your ps2 ;)

I am not being abusive, I am just stating that it is dangerous for teenagers to grow up too fast...Why grow up so fast? You have your whole life to be an adult (with all the responsibilities that go with it), and only a few years to be a child.

BTW, I doubt CW would appreciate you telling the entire forum about her not being a virgin...now that's abusive.

She wont give a damb! She dont care, especially with how she lost it! Ever thought that a lot of teens go on holiday? It's a romantic present, how on earth is going on holiday growing up to fast? Its most probaly partly a clubbing holiday!
Im sorry if i understood you wrongly, but you have really offended me.
It's not like she's already trying for a kid! She's practically an adult anyway! Once she hits 18 shes gonna be classed as an aduly! She's finished school, getting back into work and getting her life together! If she wants to have fun with her BF let her and dont get in her way! You may be a mother, but i dont care! You have no right talking the way you did! Every mother is different, and if my mum wants to let her daughters enjoy life, she will! My mum gives us more freedom as we get older so we can realise what the real world is like. If my mum stopped us from doing anything and going out in the world on our own, when we move out we'd be in for a massive shock! My mum is the best and i love her!

I'm not going to argue with anyone, but I agree that such personal details should be left out. And why should CW become devastated by reading this??? No one is critisizing her(or your mom for that matter) or blaming her for being happy about the whole thing and this is not meant as a personal attack on anyone. Just because people state that very few people under 18 are allowed to travel with their partners alone, doesn't mean your mom is a bad mom because she allows her to. If I was that age, I'd be thrilled if my mom would let me do something like that, and I'd be upset as heck if she refused to let me go, but I'd still understand her.....if not then, then at least at a later stage.
These are just people's opinions and I can assure you they're not meant to offend anyone. And if your sis is allowed to go, then she'll be thrilled about it anyways and not let other people's opinions get onto her. And although people here have the right to say that they might not have allowed their children to go, it doesn't mean that the way your mother has chosen to raise her children is a bad way....different choices for different people......she's an adult and allowed to raise her kids the way that suits her the best.....and no one can or even does say that she's a bad mother for that. And just bcz some people may not agree in your mom's decision, it doesn't mean at all that it's a bad option.

Thank you, Marianne, beautifully and thoughtfully written.

Princess and Croft Woman: Please accept my apologies if I have hurt your feelings, I didn't mean to. My parenting style is one of teaching your children to have restraint, not get/do everything their heart desires, and learn about the world by knowing how to live in it properly by making wise choices that will benefit them physically and emotionally.

It is much more difficult to be that kind of a parent, you aren't looked at by your children as "Mom, My Bud," and your kids are not particularly happy about you restricting them from doing whatever they please. Of course every teen's dream is to have parents who are laid back and allow things only adults should be doing (for many reasons--adults are more emotionally mature to deal with such things as sex, for example), but it is my belief that kids do not become as responsible or productive adults with this kind of parenting.

This IN NO WAY reflects how you two will turn out! I would be ridiculously pompous to think that just because your mom has parented you in her particular style, that you will turn out to be deficient adults. I am just stating how I feel.

Again, I am sorry to have originated a negative spin to this thread. If CW reads this and gets upset, then she should direct her anger toward me, and not to the forum as a whole. That just isn't fair.
