Disobedience to Parents

Friends. I presume that most of us had gone against our parent's will for sometime or another. It can be in the form of getting out of the house in the middle of the night to hang out with friends; insistent on a relationship with a guy whom your parents dont trust or etc etc. What has been the outcome of disobedience to you? Were you able to squeal out on a situation by sheer dumb lock or would you conclude that "parents are always right?" What say you?

Hi there! In my case, I don't really remember any major thing that I have done against my parent's will, except of course the usual of getting home late but after one time that my mom really gets mad at me, even if I am with her cousins that time I never do it again. From then on I always inform her whatever I will be doing and obey and respect the "curfew" that she sets in that particular time...back in high school. But when I was already in college, my parents don't restrict me that much anymore, they gave me my freedom but still guided with their advices, and all those that I have learned from them in my younger years... Now, all I can say is that I am thankful that I have obeyed them, not because I believe that they are always right but because I believe that they just wanted what's best for me and my brother and that they will not do anything that will harm us... I loved them so much and they deserved to be obeyed, respected and loved too.

I have been rebelling against my parents when I was younger and sometimes even today If truth be told. The difference lies in the way I react. Back then when I was younger I don't understand the reasons but as a parent and mature individual I have learned my lessons. My daughter is looking into me the way I treat my Mom. I even agree with my Mom to scold her when she does disobey so that she will develop into a good person. I answer back and that seems to be my hardest struggle although I am by nature a " good girl" as attested by people who know me. I guess we want to have our say in every situation that we are in and seems to rebel against those who dissuade us from ever attaining our goals be it for selfish reasons.

When I was a child, I hate my parents' advise. I want to do everything by myself. I don't know why. But when I was grown up, I have realized that parents' advice is useful!

My parents passed away when i was 13 so the only disobeying that i've done was not listening to my mom when she told me not to play with her figurines. That was very childish of course. I just found those little swans and angels so attractive i couldn't control myself from getting my hands on them. Eventually i broke them and i kept them from my mom and of course knowing all moms, you could never keep a secret from them. Thus i got spanked. I always believed my parents were always right. I never found any house rules they made as unreasonable. For me they were perfect. Since i'm the youngest i have seen my older siblings disobeying my parents. But because they were good at disciplining us, when they passed away 20 years ago, we managed to become good people as we have kept in mind what they have taught us. So i can say that my parents were really always right. I can't tell about other parents.
