I kinda pissed my parents off really badly today. Any advice? I've apologized multiple times and tried being a sweet little angel, but they're still super pissed at me. I'm 15 and had my first fight that the rebel teens do with my parents.
Help people please.
15 is a tough age for everyone.
My suggestion is to own it, fess up if you were intentionally being a rebel, and try to find a middle ground for future behavior. Talking it out with your folks, listening, clarifying, and working to meet in the middle can show them you are growing up and being mature. A sincere I apologize and it won't happen again is only good for you truly don't do it again and learn from the situation. Fake behavior will just make them madder. Be authentic and real.
Owning your behavior is important!
Post back with an update on thing! Blessings!!
Wait a few days and everyone will cool off. Once everyone is calm you can talk things over. You are growing up and probably want more freedom.
I have gone through that myself. I wrote a letter to my parents apologizing and it took a few days for everything to be back to normal.
Let everything heal and all will be fine again! :)
Since you have already apologized and nothing changed it is probably because this "thing" you did or said is a very serious matter to your parents and a simple apology just won't cut it.
Think about your apology - was it really sincere? Did you really mean it? Or was it just an ordinary apology that you're hoping will get you past this stalemate?
I would suggest you let it cool for a while but why not write a simple apology with maybe an I love you and stick it on your refrigerator door?
If you have been making apologies in the past and did not follow through with what you said then it may take a little more time and proven behavior before this will really go away.
