My parents are very strict Christians. I am the open-minded child who doesn't always believe in what they believe in. So basically, I get in trouble a lot, which makes them lose their trust with me. Recently, I have been trying my best to obey them and be honest. And I have! They notice, but don't reward me.( I am the kind of person who needs to know they appreciate it when I am good, instead of always noticing just the bad). Christmas is coming up and, just like I have for the past 3 years, I am asking for an iPhone. Now the past years, I could understand their reasoning in why it was always a no, but now I don't. I'm 16 and mature enough, so why is it still a no? I ruined my good streak about a week ago and so that could be part of it. Now, she keeps referring back to all the other times I have screwed up and its making me feel like crap. I just wish she would give me some space and actually trust me for once and let me show her that I can be responsible. Am I wrong in how I am acting? Honesty is much appreciated.
