    You better leave this alone for now, But if you do things around the house with out being asked or told to, It may help you here.

    The best parts of growing up...

    You'll survive. Learn whatever lesson you need to learn, don't do it again, and you'll be fine. That's the idea of a punishment, it's supposed to suck a little bit.

    Buy one of your own and tell them if they take it they will be ARRESTED for THEFT.

    With whose money? If she still lives at home and is a minor, her parents probably bought the phone anyway. I also don't think that you can get your own phone contract in your own name if you're under 18.

    When a minor child - the parent can take whatever they want and it is not theft. If I found out that my child did that, they'd find they had wasted that money as I would then take both cellphones and donate them to a charity - and then have my child work overtime to pay off the cancellation fee of their phone.

    If you want to show your maturity, then don't complain and accept responsibility - truly accept it - for your actions. If they give it back to you early, then you've shown them that you have learned something. Otherwise, do your time... so to speak. Learn from this.

    (Edit: Oh, and as an FYI, if I was your parent and saw this posted online, I'd double your time.)

    If you deserved to have your phone confiscated, don't whine and cry, but take your punishment. Show your parents that you understand why it's gone and act as maturely about it as you can. Whining and moaning will just show them that they are justified in taking it.

    You can't "make them" do anything. Just have to respect their choice & live with it.

    Bingo!! I've been known to take the phone right from their hand and hang it up mid conversation, because of attitude. Think I care? HA! They can explain to their little friends later how their Mom is a mean b*tch who won't put up with it. ;-)

    Well, actually, it depends on what it was. But i suggest just doing something without calling them, and when you finally show up say " i didn't have a phone, i thought it would be okay" i do this a lot, and it works...but it usually ends up with something else happening instead.

    LOL Been there, tried that. Didn't work. That is HOW parents become so smart. We have memories...lol

    Didn't work for me, my kids or my grand kids. LOL That is a generaltional FAIL! (Unless you have wimpy parents...lol)

    Let me guess.....you can manipulate your Daddy. that is why you get away with things because he's NICE....awhhh....

    I may not have had a phone but my kids and grand kids did.
    You see....they worked, paid for their phone AND phone bill and knew they had responsinilities if they wanted a phone XD

    Uhh no. You obviously don't know my family. My dad may be nicer than my mom but he's not an idiot. Now, quit being a prick and trying to tell me about something that you obviously don't know about. Because you see, i have a job and i bought my own phone with it and i pay my own bill. FAIL

    Awhhhh I never said your Dad was an idiot. I said he was the one easily manipulated. There is a big difference.
    . "But i suggest just doing something without calling them, and when you finally show up say " i didn't have a phone, i thought it would be okay" i do this a lot, and it works...but it usually ends up with something else happening instead.
    Your words not mine. This is manipulation at it's finest. Congratz!

    Daddy gives in, and Mommy doesn't stand her ground....typical spoiled brat who thinks because of that the world will hand them something. I'd of said nothing except IT insisted on calling MY friend a prick! :-D

    I know you didn't say that, i meant it as my dad is not stupid enough to give in to me. He's definitely not easily manipulated, i would know better than you, seeing that he is my dad and you've never met him before. I was joking by the way, if i did that my ass out be sleeping outside. So, not understanding at its finest. Congratz!

    Your advice to the poster was pure manipulation.

    You still don't get it? Too bad. And yes, sarcasm is easily done, and i did it but does that matter?
    You don't even know what to say anymore, so you're commenting on the way i write. You're pointless, you just got blocked. Congratz!

    Hopefully your parents will not allow you to manipulate them in this way. Since you know it was major, sit back and try to learn from the situation, and don't forget to apologize to your parents.

    If it was something major, they were right to take it. All kids are too dependent on those stupid phones anyway. Be smart and learn how to live without it, or are you going to die?!!

    Get a job and buy your own. Parents don't have to supply unnecessary items.

    They fail to realize that we are only responsible for clothing, food & a roof over their head. All the other stuff is extra and not required!
