You know the one....

"are you on drugs? You've been acting so different lately..."

lol...I guess everyone has to get it eventually...I think it's quite funny...especially considering I'm quite content at the moment hehe...

I thought you meant that other talk... :p Yeah, I've had this one before. My dad is oh so observant (or so he thinks :rolleyes:). How were you acting differently? Overly happy or something?

Mine was even more annoying...

My parent though I'm in gang just because my teacher made a single mistake in attandance...and I never had a record of skipping school before...

Like, how does that relate?

Edit: They had that talk in school...talk about embarassment...

The very fact that your parents are questioning you means that they love you & care about what happens to you. This is a good thing.

Hehe, Ive had that before, mine was really random, it went from a Movie comming out for the weekend to "Are you smoking Pot cause u look high." And ofcourse i have to respond with "No, i was born with this face..." Which is true...sadly alot of teachers have asked if im High, i just laugh and well..the laughing doesnt help convince them that im not for obvious reasons.

My parents never gave me that talk. They were the type that thinks that if they don't talk about stuff, stuff doesn't exist. But when I started working, a lot of people thought I was permanently high. In the years between then and now, I don't know if I've learned to laugh less or if there's just less stuff for me to laugh about.

Oh, the joys of The Talks. :D

Some people at my school last year thought I was a stoner because I look perpetually tired (too many nights up finishing homework at the last minute), I laugh a lot, and I sometimes smell of incense when I've been burning it in my room. Parents know better, thankfully.


New Year's Day, parents noticed an empty beer bottle lying in the hallway (I wasn't allowed alcohol in the house but did so anyway for NY's Eve, was careless with the evidence). After some discussion, my dad reconsidered his no-drinking rule and decided to allow me to drink occasionally in the house. A Talk with a happy ending. :D


I've also had the other talk from my dad before. He gave me a lecture about how homosexuality is un-natural. No idea where he got the idea I'm a lesbian, because I'm not interested in either sex. My mum picked up on that much better than my dad did and let me know she'd guessed it by handing me an interview with the founder of asexuality.org in the New Scientist one day.

The very fact that your parents are questioning you means that they love you & care about what happens to you. This is a good thing.

Totally agreed. :)
It may seem like a pain in the backside and none of their business at the time, but it's their responsibility as parents to make sure you don't mess your life up through drink/drugs/sex/other. So next time they stop you to ask whether you've been doing anything you know you shouldn't have been, remember that they're doing it because they love you and don't want to see you causing damage to yourself.

"are you drinking?"
Yes
"are you on drugs?"

Mine...well im still questioned if im getting high....should i tell them yes even if im not...maybe they would leave me alone finally instead of repeatedly asking.

My father has always had this "you can do anything you want" attitude,fortunately for me this attitude has worked to some extent(I say to some extent because I still get lazy at times:p ) ,and when I picked up smoking,he was like "be careful,don't smoke too much"(well there wasn't much he could do anyway,I was already an adult when I picked it uo:p ,but he wasn't *****ing or anything),I guess this "reverse psychology",if you will,has worked for me..because I quit eventually:D

:hea:

Is there any way you can give them proof you aren't? Like give them permission to search your room or something. It's a bit distressing that they don't recognise their own child's personality. :(

i doubt my parents will every have this talk. they know that its my own business and will only try to help me if i say yes. they want whats right for you and iof your taking drugs, that not good.

Hey, I got that the other night too! My dad just randomly dropped it on me when I was on msn 'Lara... are you and your friends into drugs by any chance?' I was just like... 'huh?' o_O lol Im not on drugs though... o_O Guess its a parents responsibility to question their teenager at some point... lol But then again, the way me and my friends act when we're out (We're always hyper) you cant really blame him. :p

Edit: Id rather the 'drug' talk than the 'other' talk anyway... the thought of my Dad dropping THAT into conversation just freaks me out... *cringe* Besides, Ive just turned 16 and he still hasnt mentioned anything, so I think its safe to say its being avoided :p Praise moses...

My mum and step-dad said that I'm acting differently lately, but since I can't think of anything different in my life at the moment I just told them I was being a grumpy teenager. :p

04-05-06, 19:34
Whats wrong with having a lover?

04-05-06, 19:36
I only had talks after I already knew everything about it I could possibly know.

Not really, I know a lot of things they don't. Not everything of course, but a lot.

04-05-06, 19:40
Lol hehe shes 15 and issnt allowed a boyfriend, isnt that a little over protective? If i was that age id be doing more that just kissing, ahem, but id also be out drinking, which my parents wont know :P

Maybe so... but while i can still get around in my wheelchair there will be none of that malarkey!.(unless of course my battery goes again, i'm not pushing the bugger with me hands!).:D

Lew
04-05-06, 19:47
Well she might be out somewhere now! You never know, i know no teenager who tells there mum and dad what theyre doing while they go out and stuff

Draco
04-05-06, 19:48
Why what?

Why would you want to grow up so fast and do things that could potentially dictate the rest of your life?

gazhammer
04-05-06, 19:49

She's here washing up right now, then she's got the polishing and hoovering to do!. (No wonder i named her Cinderella!).:D

I know plenty. But admittedly, not enough.

Lew
04-05-06, 19:51
Lol! awwwwwww poor girl, tell her to have a rest, school is hard you know! We do need a break.

Well i dont wanna waste my life away im just making the most of my teen years

Well I can tell you from experience, your adult years will thank you for not doing that. You might get lucky and have nothing happen, or you might come out of it with some unplanned responsibility, which doesn't necessarily mean kids.

Lew
04-05-06, 19:56
Well i'll be safe :D and i probs want kids when im 30 or something. Why what are the other responsibities?

Draco
04-05-06, 19:57
You can't be sure of your actions when your inhibitions are altered. And in my experience, very few people would do anything to make sure you don't do anything stupid...but it helps you find your true friends.

Some very wise words here :tmb: It's a parent's perogative to have talks (and to show embarassing pictures of you in nappies to total strangers at supermarkets) so expect them, and take their true meaning to heart. :hug:
