  1. Just follow rule #2 dads and I think lots of the others on the list will fall into place naturally.
  2. Well this was kind of depressing....still haven't learnt, having just worked two 10+ hour days...and getting duller and duller...got to break the cycle in the New Year.
  3. I think it's a two-way street too. Try to talk to your parents in as adult, grown up and respectable way as possible. Join in conversations and show you have opinions and ideas, just remember to be respectful and remember that they are your elders. Depends how mature you are, getting into a shouting match or having a tantrum is just going to have a negative effect and end badly and you'd be better off keeping your mouth shut, (think it, but just don't actually say it ). Similar to mumbling an illegible response or replying "Whatever…" when asked something can trigger a parents wrath...a polite "yes" or "no" can keep you out of a heap of trouble for very little effort. Talking (like behaving) in a more adult way will probably get your parents realising that you are really growing up into a young adult...and treat you more like one. Ol' Aunt Nat (I know...it's easy to preach when you get as old as I am...Sorry! )
  4. I found this story almost beyond belief...I dug a little deeper...if anything it just made it even worse...to quote T.I.'s actual words from the "Ladies Like Us" podcast referred to in the article Whetstone posted: "Deylah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself. And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.So it’s this one time we go, I think this might have been after her 16th birthday,” T.I. said. “This is what we do… Usually, like the day after the [birthday] party, she’s enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.’ So then [the doctor says], 'I just want you to know there are other ways besides sex that the hymen can be broken," he said in part. “Like bike riding, athletics, horseback riding and just other forms of athletic physical activity. So I said, 'Look doc, she don't ride no horses, she don't ride no bikes, she don't play no sports. Just check the hymen, please. And give me back my results expeditiously."
  5. Going to be confusing for my body clock at 5 a.m. on Monday as the clocks go back an hour here tonight...or will I still spookily still wake up at 4.59 as usual, just seconds before the alarm goes off despite the change? Looking on the bright side though...an extra hour on the dance floor tonight....Bonus Boogie Time!. Boppin' Nat.
  6. Thank you so much for sharing this Jon. When this topic is mentioned online there are often comments from ill informed amateur "experts" who doubt the disorder even exists and seem to think harsh discipline is the simple cure. It is so helpful and informative to read the experiences of someone who has lived through it. Nat
  7. Do any of you that get an allowance ever get it withdrawn for a period as a form of punishment...not something I've heard of happening much here that I can remember?
  8. Dad would get me everything he felt I needed, but I'd have to earn it to get anything else....either by doing stuff around the house, which I kind of did anyway, so that's a bit confusing to me thinking about it now...or actually working a bit at weekends or in the school holidays...local shops, delivering stuff, stacking shelves...and that start all developed into a career via a few twists and turns...but I'm still trying to make sure those shelves are stacked in a way.
  9. You haven’t given enough options...I’ve been having to get up at 5am to get to work these last several weeks...and the same at weekends, because my body clock has been set to that time...and it’s already past my bedtime now...so I’ll have to come back to this one...great idea for a poll, Martha. Ah, just noticed the “other” option...that’s the one for me. Goodnight everybody Nat Edit...Oops something went wrong...wouldn’t let me vote without putting in a time for church Edit 2... tried again this morning...it works now...was that n/a option there last night...must have been too sleepy to see it...Oops
  10. I was allowed to wear make-up...Dad would just pass an occasional sarcastic comment. which did sometimes make me wonder if I'd gone too far...but I don't remember him actually stopping me...even if I probably did look a bit like The Joker in drag on occasions. And I still like really heavy eye stuff and the brightest red lipstick. Some of you might remember me sporting this look a couple of years ago...but it never did catch on. Nat
  11. Yes I do have the full Scouse accent...born and raised here...it’s a good job we type rather than talk here...most of you wouldn’t understand half of what I was saying (even some of you from other parts of the U.K. !)...and I always try to do a Scouse to English translation on my posts before sending them....like this thread all about the clobber, pure boss!
  12. Yes, it’s the same here in Liverpool...short skirts or shorts and bare legs most of the time..not because of the weather though, the majority of the time it seems to be cloudy or raining and that cold wind off the Mersey whistles right up where it shouldn’t sometimes...but us Liver-birds are hardy creatures. Nat (And that’s pronounced lie-ver-birds from liv-er-pool...don’t ask me why!)
  13. I somehow doubt a mum who won't let her daughter listen to music with swearing in the lyrics would agree though.
  14. Maybe not if she’s familiar with the content of the book...and I’m not just talking about the swear words...likely to raise some awkward questions about why you want to read such a notorious book at your age which was once banned in many countries because of its explicit content.
  15. I’m so envious of you...I’d love to go to Graceland...I will one day. (The somebody else was Johnny Cash by the way) Nat
  16. And you must know all the words already, or you wouldn’t realise they were swear words...I don’t think hearing somebody else saying them in a song is necessarily going to turn you into a foul mouthed young rebel.
  17. Like I’ve just said in another thread....as long as you can’t see my underwear it’s long enough. I’ve always liked short skirts since puberty kicked in...as I was the tallest in class and showing off the legs was kind of my active compensation factor for the lack of any development above the waist ( and you know what I mean...before any of you guys comment about my brain being included in that area!) As for how to get away with it, well dad really didn’t mind...and the fixed length school skirt could be easily adjusted by rolling the waistband...instantly breaking the “inch above the knee” rule by several inches...I was such a rebel! (although one with a rather bulky waist if you looked closely)
  18. I agree, it’s always interesting for me to see what I thought all those years ago...and to remember some of the old characters that have been a part of the forum....some more fondly than others. A good topic then is still a good topic now, so nobody should worry about reviving a long lost thread they discover in their wandering around the archives (unless it has some embarrassing comment from a young Natalie in it!)
  19. I’m mostly a fan of music from ancient history as members here will well know and probably be sick of me going on about...Elvis, Beatles, Rolling Stones. Swearing in music was much rarer than today back then, probably because it would never get broadcast...it seems today anything goes, although I can’t see why it’s necessary to use swear words so often...it surely loses any impact it would have if used more sparingly for a specific emphasis? Having said that I’ve heard recording session tapes of Elvis where he changes the lyrics of alternate unreleased takes into some quite crude things, Lennon and McCartney have solo songs where they use the “F” word and they have been released. And there’s the story of my favourites, The Rolling Stones, when they left their first record company on bad terms...they were still contractually obliged to provide one more single...and offered up a song that I doubt could even be released today...their old record company certainly couldn’t back in the 1970s. I have a copy of it on a bootleg...shall we just say it’s more than a bit controversial from start to finish...I can’t even say the title here or Jonathon would have me censored, spanked and booted! I’ve heard all this stuff, but I’ve managed to avoid them slipping into my daily vocabulary...they might be in my head sometimes...but it’s better if “Oh my gosh” comes out of my mouth.
  20. As it was just me and dad as I was growing up as a teenager I would have to drag him along when I went clothes shopping. He hated it and couldn’t wait to get out of there as I tried one thing on after another....so in the end I think he was so desperate to escape he was just happy to agree to anything. Actually he was pretty cool about what ever I wanted to wear ...I’m still the same now...as long as my underwear isn’t showing it’s not too short!
  21. Funny how these really old threads sometimes get revived...I thought this was a new one, but realised I’d already posted in it a few times over three years ago...and my answer is still the same as I said back on page one.
  22. Of course you are allowed to just chat about stuff, whatever you like (as long as it’s not politics or anything too controversial that is just going to start arguments). Some adults have started threads that don’t seem to have much to do with or are of interest to young girls...but as a teenage girl anything you want to talk about will have something to do with raising girls or what interests or concerns them...because you are one of them. I think lots of the older members would say that they have learned things too from listening to the things that the girls here are interested in and want to talk about...so just chat away!
  23. Booster seats are for the cool, smart kids...they make the journey safer...and you can see where you are going...win/win. Classmates who think it’s clever to risk needless injury in an accident or tease somebody because of their height really aren’t that smart or cool at all.
  24. It’s good to have a rant occasionally....and typing all this stuff out to explain everything to us probably helps too. Maybe your new mum doesn’t believe a girl your age should be spanked. You can’t just be friends with a parent, you need to respect them too. Maybe this is what she is trying to encourage in you, treating you in a more adult way than your new sisters and hoping you will respond in an adult way. You feel bad that you might disappoint her in some of the things you do and that’s the sort of attitude I mean. Maybe instilling that more mature way of thinking is more effective than treating you like a little girl and spanking you when you mess up...parents don’t know all the answers, maybe they are trying this approach now to see how it works...I’d certainly recommend it as a more preferable option than the alternative, having experienced both, but we’re all different and need different things. You have good caring parents and I’m sure they’ll do whatever is needed to ensure you stay on track, there will be things you don’t understand or like about it over the next few years probably...there certainly were for me...but I do think you are on the right track already.
  25. Martha, when you said they got married recently at the beginning of this thread I didn't realise that you'd all been living together since the start of this year. Six months felt like a very long time to me at that age (although the time seems to flash by much quicker now I'm in the opposite camp, now I'm not a teenager and getting older too quickly and wishing I was younger again sometimes ). If you've been together that long and nothing has happened, then maybe it's not going to. I think most of us here believe spanking is far more common than it's generally thought to be here in the U.K., but even so I personally think it's still mostly young children that get it and it tends to phase out as girl's approach puberty...based on no facts whatsoever, just my feeling. I'd also think it even less common for a girl in her teens to start getting spanked if she' s never had it before...although I know that's not always the case obviously, as girls here have had that experience, and the step parent thing throws a whole different aspect on it. I just think it more likely that at least the subject would have been raised, or you'd have had the threat of, or had an actual spanking, if you'd been living together for over six months....or maybe you just aren't as naughty as some of us were at that age Or maybe they are deliberately leaving things open, kind of like my father did, letting you carry on believing, while it's not actually happening, it is still an option you need to keep in mind. Maybe it's working, because you are concerned enough to join a forum like this to talk about it. Is it also perhaps, even subconsciously, making you behave just that little bit better...not pushing things quite as far as you would with just dad there...because you know what the consequences might be? Although I wouldn't bank on this theory of it kind of being just a bluff...painful consequences for you if I'm wrong Nat
