How can I convince my parents that I don't want to do sports?

How can I convince my parents that I don't want to do sports? Topic: Preschool write letter d

Question: I've done sports every year since preschool. Basketball most years, baseball every year until 6th grade, and soccer every single year. The thing is, I'm not good. I had an asshole of a coach last year (soccer, basketball), I realized just how much I suck. My parents obviously would beg to differ. I told them I didn't want to at the beginning of Summer and they were like "You had a bad coach that's all." Now, they're asking me if my cleats still fit and if I need new shorts, etc. My parents just won't listen to me anymore. I'm a ginger and at the beginning of seventh grade they said I could dye my hair for high school and now they won't let me. Like I get picked on for a lot of things, especially in seventh grade and even though it won't change me I feel like I'd just feel a little more normal physically. One less thing that makes me stand out. I get good grades, I stay out of trouble, do what I'm told, you know. And because of that I can get lots of rides to hang out with people from out of my school because my school hates me. I don't want to just not sign up. I'm extremely shy so I can't like just say it that I don't. How can I convince them that I'm not going to do sports. They'll shame me, and make me feel like a loser for not doing it. That's what I don't want. How can I avoid that? I'm going to be starting ninth grade in the fall. I hate Trolls. If anyone finds Cammy Models actually breaking any community guidelines report her for that and trolling. Her entire account is a troll alias. Ha! She blocked me!

If you're shy, write a letter. Then there won't be any mess ups or you won't forget anything. Make it lengthy (like a page long on a sheet of handwriten paper) put it in an envalope to show you put time and effort into it so they would consider it. By the way... you may be called a ginger.. but honestly... sometimes i wish i was a redhead because It's so unique and different. The most popular girl in my school is a redhead. So it's really not bad. (Thats just my opinion from what i'm hearing). If you color it... you should REALLY know if a different color would look good on you (Try on some wigs to see if it does)

Perhaps your dog will be happy to have a play companion. After one of my two cats died, the one that was still alive was really happy when we got a dog because he had a play buddy. Even now that we got another cat, he still really likes playing with the dog. Cats are good pets, they are just different than dogs. Cats can be aloof and independent, but there are definitely cats out there that are super affectionate and cuddly. My cat that died, she used to love sitting on my lap and even would groom my hair (it hurt, but she was only trying to be sweet lol). If your parents are concerned about your sister's allergy, my mom and brother are both allergic to cats but they take allergy medicine every day so we can continue to keep our cats. I think the best way to see what is good about cats is to research for yourself. There are pros and cons to cats and dogs. You should look at the website www.catster.com, because it has a lot of helpful articles on cats and a great community! Edit: im a banana. kind of posted about cats in a negative light. Yes, some cats drool or destroy things, but I've had 6 cats throughout my life so far and none of them have ever destroyed curtains or sofas. Yes, the can break things sometimes and get into messes, but so can dogs xD Definitely worth putting up with the occasional messes, vomits, and consistent meowing.

You say you're a ginger and you get picked on for it? I don't think you are getting picked on because of your sexual orientation. I think it has more to do with your tattletaling, as exhibited in your above post. When I taught 2nd and 3rd grades in the 50s, 60s and 70s, we teachers had a special corner in the room for those who liked to tattle. Most people find tattletalers annoying and simply don't like them. If you carry that attitude into your school, the kids won't like you and neither will a lot of the teachers. Take a good look at yourself and see what you can do about your attitude that might make others like you better.

You're kind of whiney, and you're a little off topic there too at the end sparky. I think you need to do a little more maturing then maybe people wouldn't make fun of you. No offense. I really hope things work out for you though. Oh and I'd just go ahead and dye your hair. Red hair is kind of weird, you're right about that. You'd feel better about yourself and then maybe have better self esteem and wouldn't be headed toward being a bully. I'm seeing that tendancy. Hope it works out.

Tell your parents you want to do something different. There's lots of other things like can do and a bunch of different clubs you can join in high school. Good luck (:

Oh hunn....you're not really a loser even though you think you are. Stop calling yourself that. It really isn't darling. You need to believe in yourself hunn. You are a darling young person with darling ginger hair and you should be proud of it. You should just stand up for yourself like you did on my question when you just stormed right onto my question and called me a name. You should be brave like that hunn. Good luck.

You sound like you are a GREAT well rounded, focused, young adult. I think your goals are amazing for someone your age, and it appears you have done your homework on the financial end as well. Have you showed your parents the plan to pay back the loan? Remember convincing parents is not the easiest task to accomplish, what you need to do is find out what their concerns are. I am not sure of your families financial situation is, but, with the economy the way it is times have become a little harder for everyone in one way or another. They may want you to save that money for college, a car, or have savings built up in these uncertain times. They may be concerned, what if you change your mind about flying, your only 16 and even though it is a passion (obviously you don't take lightly) and are very dedicated to, you wouldn't be that first teen in history to want to do something else. You need to look at what your getting for your money as well... you said you "SHOULDN'T" have to shell out $450 for 3 hours, well guess what if you want to fly you do. You make enough money a month to afford 2-3 fights depending on what your other monthly expenses are. To take out a loan for 8000.00 + 135.00 per flight is really not saving you much in the long run...example you can take 10 flights (30 hours) @ $450 = 4500.00 verses 10 flights @ $135.00 + 8000.00 = $9350.00 you don't even start to save any money until you take your 26th flight...26x450= 11,700.00 -v- 26x135+8000=11,510.00 and that does not include interest on the loan which can be as high as 26% that's another 2,080.00 even if you found a better rate say 1/2 of that 13% that's still 1,040.00 which is 2-4 reg flights @ 450.00 Then you have to consider what if the plane you buy into needs repairs and can't fly, you are paying for something you can't even use, and may even be an additional expense to you if you have to help pay for repairs. It sounds like a good deal at first but it's really not, stick with the 450 for 3 hours, it is less in the long run. Your parents know whats best, with age comes wisdom, and be grateful they even let you take flying lessons, some parents won't even let their sons play football because they think it's to dangerous!!! I just give you kudos, kudos, kudos, at 16 you have some what restored my faith and trust in your generation...at least I know there is 1 (you) out there with ambition, goals, and common sense. Good luck, with your plans on becoming a Commercial Pilot, and when you do you can afford to buy your plane outright, then you can fly your parents anywhere in the world... as a BIG THANK YOU for saving you a lot of money, not letting you possibly ruin your credit at 16.
