What's the deal with my parents?

Parents are generally different, and some are more forgiving than others. Assuming you make legitimate arrangements for your request, they could very well accept and get you what you need. Getting what you want doesn't happen all the time, and you have to prepare for the genuine possibility of being rejected. Always show your parents respect and never be mean or rude if you don't get what you asked for the first time around.

2. Always Be Mature During The Conversation:

Continually show your parents that you are a mature child with acceptable behavior. Try not to yell, question, or fight with them, assuming they seem to have some doubts right away. Remember to specify what you need precisely and the means you are willing to obtain it. The more likable and sensible you are, the more likely your parents will pay attention to you and accept your request.

You should also start the conversation knowing that your parents probably won’t say “yes.” That way, you won’t get upset if they say “no.”

4. Be Firm In a Positive Way:

Stand firm, but don’t get carried away by the repellant. Try not to scream, cry, or start yelling or complaining about their decision. The discussion will always take you further than a terrible aftershock. Let them know you’ll be working on yourself and make sure you’re serious. Parents can usually tell when you’re not planning to do your homework, so don’t make any guarantees if you’re not ready to do your part.

Your parents aren’t stupid, and they deserve some admiration. Keep a bright attitude while chatting with them. It would be best if you did not talk disrespectfully with them. Show them a cheerful attitude.

6. Offer To Make a Deal to buy your Pokemon cards:

Think about what your parents like or would like to do in the house. Suggest that they do something you often do around the house for a while. Maybe your dad is always doing some cleanings in the house at the end of the week, or your mom cleans the dogs place every other day. If you put on a good show after the first month, your parents will want to get you what you need.

7. Focus On Your Goal:

Never ask for what you need directly. If you continually ask, argue, or fight for everything you need, your parents won’t precisely be comfortable helping you get it. When you talk about what you desire, pay attention to your parents need to say. Respond thoughtfully to their questions on the subject.

An excellent way to talk to your parents is to use their language. If your dad usually explains things in a specific way, try describing yourself in the same way.

8. Consider Doing Something Great For Your Parents:

Give them something they’ve liked or something they need. For example, if mother's day is soon, consider buying a gift and some flowers and chocolates. Let them know that you paid for everything without anyone else’s help. Parents love to see their kids care for them and love them and show that. They will know that you have your own money and handle the responsibility. When they feel good, tell them what you would like to have.

Try not to ask them what you need after giving them your gift because you might be considered a manipulator.

9. Don’t Ask For Too Much:

Generally, you need to know how your parents would usually respond, whether it’s yes or no. Compare your request to the stuff your parents have already gotten for you. Does your current request seem higher than what you usually request? Research your financial means and determine how long it would take to pay for it yourself, similarly if your request is something you need or want. If you quickly lose interest in the stuff they already got you, your parents won’t give you what you want every time.

Choose if what you need is worth fighting for. Many material possessions and things in childhood and adolescence are just passing habits.

At the end of the day...

At the end of the day, If your parents have recently bought or surprised you with something, don’t ask for something new right away. This will look like you are an ungrateful kid.

Do you want Pokemon Cards so you can show them to other kids at school?

Do you need these Pokemon cards because you think they will be fun and help you little by little and intellectually?

Answering these questions can help you as you talk with your parents.
