Alright so my school has online daily progress reports, and we can check our grades. In english, my teacher handed out a disclosure and it was due friday but we had a substitue who didn't call for it, so me being the person i am thought it wasn't due after all till today. My parent tells me to check said progress reports and it shows 0/10 as the only grade in english due to the missing disclosure statement. That is an f. So I said "Oh the sub never called for it I'll turn it in first thing monday, which i did today and so its an A again. My parent grounded me for a week for it being an F, but now that its fixed i'm still grounded plus more stuff is getting taken away because nobody beleives i handled the situation. So i'm grounded for a week from phone and computer outside of school work. Is this punishment a little harsh in your opinion I mean i handled the grade and fixed it immediately and now there are no problems, so I think I should be ungrounded, but i'm still not and my parent says if I do anything else wrong I have to get rid of my BMW and quit my job and we're going to move....

Why do I think that would only worsen the current situation between the TS and his parents/parent?

325's are great, but if I were you I'd get an 87 not an 02 :]
This is just unacceptable:

psht. My insurance company won't insure anything at a reasonable price that they aren't sure of. I'm paying 500 a month with my wrx already. So it's more a matter of money.

And TS: how old are you? Your parents get all of your grades daily?

I'm seventeen and I'm able to use the computer for school and looking up music :p. She told me that since I don't have enough time in my day I shouldn't be on the computer or on the phone anyway, I do have enough time though she just wants an excuse. I dunno though, a week for momentarily making a mistake and fixing it.....

Pretty harsh considering I'm not that bad of a person, I don't do drugs, I don't drink i've only failed one class ever and that wasn't my fault even, the worst thing i've ever done is break a window in 5th grade accidentally and now if I mess up at all I have to move to nevada..... I think thats the ballest punishment ever, and I mean I could understand if I didn't fix the grade but i fixed it asap and i'm still in trouble its gay as hell...

I believed it until the last sentence.

She said "If you don't get your grades up or if they drop again, we're moving to mesquite, i'm canceling your phone and you won't be able to keep your car." No joke at all. She's been threatening it for months....

+100. Get your teacher to help you. If the situation is ok at school then you need'nt worry. But seriously, your parents sound like stuck-up bible-bashers who love punishment and only have sex once a month and even then they do it in the dark and don't talk through it.
#25
i have a feeling they're planning on moving anyway, and they're just waiting for a good excuse. i mean no one upsets their entire life to punish their child. either that or they hate your friends. what you need to do is a classic teenage retaliation, doing a bunch of horrible crap on purpose while also flipping out on them when they find out to intimidate them and get their punishment to lessen.
#26
Dude, the second your parents ever treat you like that again, just ****ing run away. You are the perfect child, a parent could want nothing more then you, and yet they are making unbelievably harsh threats in the face of a mistake that is not even your fault in the first place, just to put you down. No one deserves that. Show them that you are almost 18 and not going to take their bull**** anymore.

He should run away because he was grounded for a week? Unbelievably harsh? My god. How old are you?

Yeah I payed for it and the title is in my name, but since I'm still a minor, legally she can sell it. If she did try though I'd take it and run. I told her if she tried to move me I'd move in with a friend or something because I'm almost 18 and I don't need to be treated like a kid, so pretty much she's still saying i'm grounded and she's going to check how many text messages I send etc etc... but what can she honestly do? I'm almost graduated so I can afford to pay a phone bill if need be, and i can afford my car and everything on my own, I have a job and work nearly 30 hours a week on top of school, so even though I'm tired at school and work a ton I am still getting good grades and much bank. What she also does that pisses me off is for a while she payed my car insurance, because I couldn't work as much, so she now wants all the money she payed in car insurance back, a total of around 3000 dollars, so I pretty much have to sign my whole pay check over to her, but she's unemployed living off social security, and I'm thinking of just stifling her income from me. She needs a job and to get off her fat ass and work, rather than mooch off of me, and I think not giving her as much money a month to pay back the past insurance would help that. We don't come from a rich family, we make due though, and so I figure maybe that would help her out...

Well I'm not self made, because on top of school I maybe bring in 320.00 USD A month, so I can afford my car and maybe a phone bill, but I couldn't afford to live on my own, or buy my own grocieries etc, unless I got a better job and more hours.... I could possibly work enough to get up to 684.00 USD a month, but that would require me working 5-11 on school nights every night, and then one day an 8 hour shift, and one day off. That would be too much drain on me especially since i'm on the varsity swim and waterpolo teams, I wouldn't be able to do it. Homework would be able to be done at work though but that would be too much, but if I did that I could live on my own and buy grocieries everything.... But once I turn 18 I'm deciding if I want to wait a year before college (I graduate before I turn 18) and save money for housing and school or jump right in to college. Either way I wanna get away from this house as soon as I graduate. I've thought all this over, and I need a job that pays major bank. If I could get something at like 15.00 USD an hour that would be amazing because then I'd only have to work 24 hours a week to get 720.00 USD a month and most likely i'd work 32 hours a week and bring home 960.00 USD a month, thus meaning I could definitely afford my car and a house all the ammenities etc...

Don't put too big a burden on yourself. You can rely on student loans for your college tuition and housing. The interest rates are a bitch, but it will be easy for now and you can pay it off when you have a good job after college.

And don't let your mom dictate your life, even though she is responsible for you. For someone so independent and responsible, you should be able to make some calls too.

You could always do what I did when I got tired of my mom being a bitch: Do a bunch of coke, wind up in the hospital, go to detox, fall off the wagon, get a dumb PCP loving bitch for a girlfriend, quit school, move into her ****ty bachelor's apartment supplied to her by welfare, work full time and sell drugs on the side, get arrested for knocking a guy's teeth in with your bare hands because he wouldn't pay up, get out of jail, and then hitchike to the town where your estranged father lives, get tired of his **** and move into equally squalid conditions with your cousin and go back to school, get kicked out of school and get fired from work for showing up all strung out all the time, and then get kicked out of your home because it is being condemned because of the volumous amount of mold in the walls, wind up living un the streets and eating at homeless shelters, sell drugs, save up for a decent work outfit and a lawnmower, go door to door for 12 hours a day, mowing people's lawns, whilst still selling drugs, save that money until you can afford a half decent apartment and some clothes, and get a job at McDonald's, working nights as the supervisor for $11 CDN an hour, and take correspondance courses...On and off of course, because although you've finally kicked the cocaine habit, you still have a fondness for whiskey and the party life you've grown accustomed to.

I don't really suggest it, though. Wait it out, and you'll be good to go in a year. As for paying your mom off, do it whenever the hell you want, it's not like she works for her money.

More like I put myself in those situations. These were things I did because I was too hard-headed to do things anyone else's way. I'm not saying I had the same situation as the TS. My mom's a prison guard, and I have 4 siblings, and we were all wild, so mom was really hard on us because she had to be, you can't really make 5 kids listen if all you have is grounding and you don't have all that much to take away, because you can't really afford that much for everyone anyways. His mom's a real piece of work, though.
