Parents just don't understand!

I get the usual...."don't be crying to me when you get caught" or "you better not be doing that shit" Auntie usually goes, "I thought you stopped doing that shit" My brothers are more cool with it. They actually point graff out asking me if I see that and I'm like, "yeah"

 

I don't care if my mom or anybody is cool with it or not, just accept the fact that I write.

Well i live with my parents, and i was writin for about a year , secretly, and then boom i get fucked (caught) of course i was smart about it and all, and got away with it, but now then my parents knew what i was up to for the past year with all them sketch books. they've never been supportive to graffiti, so it was a rough year afterwards. then later, they asked me to paint at some wall, so i said okay. and i painted it , and after that day, they were a dash more supportive, which made my life way easier. but still doing them illegals, its still tough, they dont let me out at night with paint (lol yea, i'm only 16), an all that shit. and its shitty i gotta lie when i'm gonna go piecing. but gotta do what ya gotta do yannoeeeee.

Sorry about reviving this thread but I'd rather revive an old one than make a whole new one for the same thing. But anyways...

------------------------

 

My rents found out yesterday because I used to tag with a name that everyone knows me as (been my nickname for years) and my mom saw it on the side of this spa she decided to go to. They've been yelling at me all day and night and even all day today too. They're threatening to kick me out of the house and calling me stupid, worthless, piece of shit, good-for-nothing, retard, child, etc.

 

According to them, graffiti is not art and is nothing LIKE art. It's just pure pointless vandalism. I tried to explain to them that it's something I enjoy doing and I find that it calms me down and lets me think, but they don't really care at all. Everything I do for fun they shit on whether it's illegal or not. I told them a few months ago that I wanted to try making a business for customizing computer cases and video game consoles but they told me it's stupid and I shouldn't even bother because I'll end up screwing it up or wasting my money.

 

I told them about 5 weeks ago that I was looking into buying a motorcycle to go on a road trip and they shut me down on that too saying I can't be trusted on a motorcycle and that I'm too stupid to fix one and blah blah blah...

 

I really don't care anymore though. I'm going to paint whether they like it or not. They always find something that they can use to put me down but I'm not going to stop painting. If they take my paint, I'll buy more. If they kick me out, I'll go to a friends until I find my own place.

 

I'm tired of their bullshit. I'm 22 and I'm still not aloud to make my own decisions without them putting me down and kicking me out. My brother drinks and drives almost every night (not just buzzed driving, like BLACK OUT DRUNK driving) and they never say anything except "Okay, just make sure you don't do it again!" and then give him money to go buy more booze.

 

No longer will I accept the shit they do to me or say to me. I'm going to do what I want. I respect them FULLY and don't paint around the house, I don't make a mess of my bedroom, I don't drink alcohol, I don't borrow money off them, and I do all the work around here that there is to do (dishes, laundry, painting the house, vacuuming, sweeping, cleaning the car, roofing, and I fix everyones computers) but they won't respect me, or even listen to what I have on my mind. At least when I'm painting, I can be happy. I'm not going to give up doing something that I love and that makes me happy just because my parents don't like it. If everyone did that, there would be no rock and roll, no rap, no NOTHING.

 

 

And I'm not looking for pity or hand-outs or anything, I'm just ranting since I don't have anyone else to talk to about this shit. Thanks for giving me a place that I can go and talk to people like me about the shit that we all go through. I need you more than you need me, that's for SURE.

my moms totally cool with me going out and painting, but before i go all she says is "if you get caught, don't bother calling me, call your father". But she fully supports what I love doing so I guess it's pretty sick.

sounds like you should bail kid. Go see some places for yourself. A little traveling always helps me put things back in perspective. Try New Orleans. Great music, mad abandoned buildings, and a quaility scene.

Yeh but the problems still here ... my parents don’t know anythinnngggg they see my sketches and markers (they don’t know what the markers are 😂 ) They’ve never seen my cans or seen me sneak out so 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️ 

They wouldn’t kick me out of the house - they would kick the graff out of me and I’m not down for that.
