Dear Dish-It, My Parents Are Forcing Me to Play Piano


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

I have this thing where I hate playing the piano. It drives me nuts just lookin' at it! On the other hand, I love ice skating! It is my life. My 'rents force me to play the piano and they say if I complain about it in any way, they'll make me quit skating AND piano. I told them I should be able to make my own decisions on what to do. They just won't listen. I have had a billion arguments based on piano - I have talked to my 'rents about how I feel but they won't listen! I have a piano test in May and my mom says I can quit if I want then (if I pass,) but it's getting harder to deal with it without complaining. Please help!

Dear icesk8er4eva,

It might seem like you're stuck between a rock and a hard place but it sounds to me that you're just not willing to compromise. Obviously, the 'rents really want you to stick with your piano lessons but have decided to let you off the hook if you put in the time now and make it through this next test. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. It might seem like torture to have to sit in front of that piano for another minute but you are going to have to make compromises throughout your whole life, so you may as well start now. This way the 'rents are happy and you get to continue on with your ice skating. Just bite the bullet and put some extra time into the piano so you can actually pass that test!


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .
