Keep your parents informed

Many of you are too young and confused by their hormones to know what I'm talking about because you're living with your parents and they already know how ****ed up you are. But when you'll get older and a job and perhaps move out, you will eventually sense an urgency in your parents. They want to know what's going on at all costs. They've lost equilibrium.

The most secure way to handle this situation is to e-mail daily reports to your parents. Just in case, make sure to include the date in the e-mail title.

No idea on what to write? Below is my daily report from last Friday. I hope it might inspire you:

Dear mom,

I went to work today for five hours, just like yesterday and all of last week. When I arrived at my apartment, I decided to smoke pot to reward myself for postponing all my work duties while playing on the internet. Drugs won't bother you, I hope. I hope you don't stay awake at night speculating if marijuana really is the gateway drug to crack, heroin, and crystal meth. Anyway, sleep tight!

Your responsible son,

[Edited for paranoia-related reasons]

Re: Keep your parents informed

I surely will keep my parents informed (not sure if I learned this word or not!). I can not picture myself ever doing drugs or anything. we are religious and I always kind of picture myself sticking close to home ^^

Re: Keep your parents informed

This is like something my dad would say
"Keep me informed..."

Ugh

I'll keep my mom informed about stuff by calling/texting/whatever, but that's it

Re: Keep your parents informed

When I move out of the house, I think I'll keep my parents up to date over phone rather than e-mail. And only once every 1-2 weeks. I would rather not call or e-mail my parents every day. That seems like a little too much. Although I can definitely see why many people might keep parents posted every day: they love their parents and want to keep talking to them. I also love my parents, but I wouldn't want to talk to them every single day.

Re: Keep your parents informed

I didn't hide anything from my parents. They were well informed.

Course now, I do talk to my mom quite a bit about my daugher. It's her first granddaughter.


I think the easiest way to keep anyone informed is simply to have a blog. I have one and update it frequently. She reads it, and she doesn't need to follow up, she just comments every once and a while. It's also the best way for her to keep updates on her granddaughter.

Re: Keep your parents informed

I talk to my mom a few times a week and I tell her everything. We have a great relationship. I think she's the only person I can trust without reservation.

Conversely, I almost never speak with my dad. I haven't spoken to him since returning from spring break. Even when I'm around the house, we don't talk much. We don't have much in common. Just sports.

Re: Keep your parents informed

Mmm, great idea, ever since I moved out of my house my parents have been calling me nonstop about stupid ****, they have mostly just called me to tell me about how amazing my little angel sister is compared to how much of an ass I was. Well **** them, I have learned to just ignore them. But something like this could be fun mmm pots ^_^

Re: Keep your parents informed

My on-campus apartment is right next to a bad neighborhood, and I used to have night classes or I'd go out at night with my friends, and sometimes I'll be coming back in late from work. I usually call my mom everyday to let her know that I'm in for the night or if I'm going to be out late so she doesn't worry. My mom and I are really close, so we usually talk on the phone with each other for over an hour just talking about random things.

I'll talk to my dad, too, when he's home, but he's better to talk to in person than on the phone. We usually have our bonding time when we're either watching sports together or he's watching me play video games (if I have the Wii downstairs).

That's probably what it's going to be like when I turn 18.

Re: Keep your parents informed

Phones work just as easy, and just as quickly as any sort of email or facebook, and frankly I think it is alot more effective if you're just trying to touch base with someone. They get the idea yo ucare enough to call, hence, you are considerate, hence you are more mature, hence they will become less nagging about keeping updated about your everyday happenings including what snack you had after lunch.

Man you guys sure have/had pretty annoying parents from the looks of it. My dad pretty much forgot about me once I got out of house. Awesome.

Re: Keep your parents informed

I think my mom will call me whenever she feels alone. So I don't think I'll have to keep my parents informed. They'll make themselves informed.

Best thing to say to your mum.

I will say the exact same thing. Except changing "son" to "daughter" that is.
