Do you tell them that where you are going? Most of the time I don't because most of the time I go to the same place and my parents know it but when I need to go somewhere else then I tell them!

Oh ok. At least they know where you go. In my teen age, I used to go places and my parents were having troubles finding me.

I don't really have to tell them anymore, because I don't live with my parents anymore. But, when I did live with them, I would usually let them know if I had any plans with friends, or if I was about to leave the house. Now, that i live with my fiance, I usually tell him when I'm about to leave our apartment, just so he doesn't worry.

As a courtesy, I think we must tell our parents if where are we going before leaving the house, except if they know already our schedules but still important to let them know we're leaving. Parents are not at peace unknowing the whereabouts of their children, so the children must ask permission or give a call or send text messages informing his parents where are they and what are they up to.

I have habit of telling my parent where I am going, even though it is childish thing to do but I am doing it every time I am going out somewhere. I am not giving them any detailed explanation about where I am going but just tell them that I am going to so and so place. We should tell it sometimes because they are just asking us because they are caring us and thinking good about us. Now my parents are not asking me anything but I myself tell them whenever I am going out somewhere.

Yes, yes, they are caring for us and I think we should tell them. These days I am adopting the habit of telling them, wher I am going. I have left all the bad habits I had and I think my family likes it very much. Thanks for the response my friend and enjoy your 10 star ranking.!

If I am just going out for a walk or to neighbours then usually I don't tell them but if it is like I am going out with friends or I will get late then I do tell them before leaving the house so that they don't get worried for me.Moreover, my mom has the habit of calling me up every now and then if I don't turn up home early.Happy myLotting!

Sure, I will tell my parents when I leave the house and when I will be expected to go home. Usually I will even tell them where I go. I don't want them to worry about me. I love China

Even as an married woman I will call my mom and let her know if we are going out of town. She also knows my school schedual, and if my husband is going out of town for work I will let her know where he is going. I do not havve to do this, we live 8 hours from each other, but we talk everyday. If we do not call her then she will call me. It is just nice to know that someone knows where I am incase of an emergency. I will even call my husband or mom when I leave work or school and am on my way home so they know where I am. When I was a teen I only told my mom where I was after midnight. Before midnight it was a non-issue. Funny how things change.

And it was nice to see a good change, isn't it? I mean in your teenage midnight(!) wasn't a problem and now even a single hour in a day you want your mom to know about you. I think this shows maturity.

When I was living with my parents, I used to keep them informed as to where i was going to be. Even when I was older, if I was going to go out after work or do something after work that would delay me getting home when I usually did, I would give my dad a call and let him know. My friend's would tease me once in a while because i would call, I simply told them it I wasn't asking permission, but I was being considerate because I knew If I didn't get home at my regular time, my dad would worry and I didn't want him to worry.

Hi unibear, I was thinking about you that you are not coming to mylot and speacily to my discussions. Well, better late than never. So, how is your life, everything okay? Friends are friends, sometimes they can't bear that your parents love you very much and their don't. It is all about jealousy. i must tell you that you were nice with your parents and I am glad that I am adopting the same habit. Thanks for responding.

I tell them before leaving the house that I am going but where and when I'll come back has never been a part of our conversations. They never interfere with my deeds that much and hence it is easier for me to tell them everything they want to know.

Usually I would do that. in fact it's all the time I would tell my partner on where I am going just in case something happens and he/she knows where to look for me or something like that. Besides, it's kind of a respect too to let your partner know where you are going.

I have this practice inherited from my father.Wherever we go,it is good to inform the family members,which will be useful to meet any urgent or emergency tasks.But now with cell phones,I think the family will not worry anymore.They can easily contact us,when needed.Cheers!

I always prefer to tell other wise they may think always about me where i go and what i am doing so i don't want give struggles on me, so i prefer to tell all the time. i think you don't tell most of the time so i requesting you tell them before your going outside.

Well I do, but my Mom is not with me right now. For reasons that you can't tell what will happen. Now a days life is not that easy and kind a dangerous. So anything happens to me it's easy for her to trace me. Have a nice day to you!

I used to always tell my dad where i was going. I wouldn't give him specifics on who, just lump them into groups, like for example, "work friends". I would also call my dad if my plans changed. My friends would sometimes give e a hard time when i was in my 20's, saying that it was funny that I still had to ask permission. It was never about asking permission, it was being considerate of my father's feelings. He knoew when I was suppoeed to be home and if I was late he's worry. I didn't want him to worry.

Happy to meet you too pal. That has happened to me a lot of time. These days also sometimes, I go without telling them and they will yell at me when I will return home. Sometimes, I enjoy it because I feel that they are worried for me and that is an awesome feeling.

Whenever I come home I do tell them where I'm going and when I'm leaving and things like that. It's not really to ask for permission but to do it out of respect because it's their house and they should be aware who comes in and out of it. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Most times I do tell my parents that I am going out to such and such place, but I don't tell them when I will return. I think it is good to tell them where we are going because they can call when they need us. I think it also gives them a feeling that their children are more closer to them. I also likes to tell them where I go.
