Parent’s rules essay Ryan Lauer My parents sometime put very strict rules on me, but I know it’s for the best for me. I wouldn’t even try to argue with them because my mom has MS, and stressing her out would make it worse. To even consider arguing with my parents is mad. There for, all the rules my parents make and will make are fair. Even if I did, my parents will always win the argument, so it’s useless to argue. It’s better if I just do as they say. I’m not allowed to play video games until the weekend, which I think it’s fair because I play them too much and don’t concentrate on schoolwork. I have to do the dishes when I’m done with my homework, which is also fair because I need to contribute my effort to the house. If I don’t do as I’m told, I lose my privileges and get yelled at, maybe even slammed against a wall if I get them angry enough, but they don’t want to hurt me. I know that for a fact. They just need to discipline me. I know they don’t hate me or punish me just to be mean. It’s for my own good. I can’t talk about family matters in school, but this is a project, so I’m just going to have to live with it. We don’t argue much about the rules because they are very fair. I didn’t even want to do the project in the first place because I would never go against my parents. So instead, I did a report about how I try to listen to my parents and do as I’m told.
