So, first of all I want to say I know this has nothing to do with the big farm game.
But I wanted to see if anyone on here knows a way to show your parent your responsible.


The story is that there's something I've really wanted for awhile but the thing is its 90 USD,
And my parents don't want me spending that amount of money on it.

I'm pretty sure it's because they don't think I'm responsible enough to take care of it.
So, I want to prove to them that I am responsible enough. :)

Well anyway the question is "Do you know a way I could show my parents I'm responsible?"


Thanks for all your help in advance! :)


Your RESPONSIBLE Friend,
DreamBig10

    Hello, Dreambig! You pose an interesting question, one that has many answers. The first thing that comes to mind is to not behave irresponsibly. Everyone makes mistakes, but if you keep making the same bad choices over and over, your parents will think you're not a responsible person. You also must recognize that your parents have been around a lot longer than you have and have already proven themselves to be responsible. If they feel you shouldn't spend that amount of money, you should respect that. After all, they DO have your best interest in mind. And in real life, we don't ALWAYS get what we want, no matter how badly we crave it. :)


    P.S. I know that's not what you wanted to hear, but it's the truth.

    I just wanted to add that you have an opportunity to show your parents that you ARE a responsible person in this case by shopping around to get the absolute LOWEST price available for what you want and then showing them how much you can save for that particular item. That shows them that you are responsible with money. And to a parent, that's a good thing. :)

    As a parent I have to ask, is $90 the actual cost, or are there additional costs? Since you aren't being specific. Examples include (Though not necessarily for $90), insurance/gas for cars, food/maintenance for animals, cleaning/health issues for body modifications, etc.

    The amount of responsibility required wholly depends on the object desired, not the dollar amount. If its possible to get a cheaper facsimile that you can 'take care of' for a period of time. That's one possible solution.

    Well, for just a doll, even if it is realistic, 90$ is a lot. :) It may not just be a matter of responsibility.

    I personally would buy a box of book or something else.

    Thanks for you reply grey cat.

    And I know a lot of people would chose something completely different then a doll but I'm different from other people. :)

    Again thanks for you answer! :)

    I played with dolls when I was younger & I loved them! I have two boys so I just play with legos now. :D

    Have you asked your parents if you can do chores around the house to earn some money? What about setting up a lemonade stand or something?

    Depends on if you have to pay taxes on money earned at a lemonade stand in your state. Some states do that...

    Is their reasoning that you don't take care of the dolls you have? Or is it the realism of the doll that bothers them? Dolls are absolutely a part of growing up (I guess its gender specific but shouldn't be). In fact they can be a great way to judge a child's sense of responsibility.

    Were I you, I'd recommend showing how well you take care of your current dolls over time, to show them how well you would take care of an extra special doll.

    So let me put in my two cents about this, first off, Hi Everyone!
    You probably know me as Space, but I am also DreamBig's older sister.

    See Dream has plenty of money to buy this doll, and it is not the fact that she plays with dolls that bother our parents. And they know she takes very good care of them, you could say she takes too good care of them.

    The reason my parents will not let her get this doll is because they would not be very responsible parents if they let there 12 year old daughter buy a $90 doll.

    What my sister does not understand is that my parents have made up there mind, and their decision is not going to change. She is not going to be getting this $90 doll.

    And honestly it is not like she needs it, she already has three baby dolls, two 18 inch dolls (and is getting a 3rd for her birthday), and don't even get me started with the stuffed animals.

    Well I hope that shines some light on this subject.

    It is not right to have an opinion on whether or not your parents should let you buy this doll, its a matter for your family & we don`t really know enough about why your parents have said no, to say whether that is a good or bad decision.

    What I will say is that there are far more expensive interests that a 12 year old could get in to, nothing for kids is cheap & from earlier posts on this forum, it is clear that Dream is a very creative 12 year old, with a great imagination & playing with dolls is a very good way of expressing that. Have you tried making models, paintings, drawings or your dolls Dream? There are many very lucrative careers for talented artists, in the field of gaming & movies, who probably started out playing obsessively with dolls, action figures & other such toys.

    Space says that you are getting a doll for your birthday, maybe your parents would get you the one that you want if you offer to pay the difference in price... Just a thought. Perhaps they think you need to get out more, you could try joining some sort of arts & crafts classes or some other way to channel your obvious creative streak. Sometimes in life, when one door closes, another one opens...Be happy! :thumbsup:

    Dreambig, I'm sorry you weren't able to get the doll you wanted. :( Don't think you're too old to play with dolls. I stopped playing with dolls & barbies when I was 13 years old (I'm 30 now) because I thought "well I'm a teen now & probably shouldn't play with dolls anymore" but honestly, once you grow up life goes by faster & faster. Enjoy being young & cherish every moment you get to play with your dolls. One day you'll be grown & may be wishing you could be 12 years old again.

    I looked at your biography on your profile & it looks great! :thumbsup:
