A John Boy Production
My name is Luke and I am thirteen. I have a problem. Well, I think I have a problem but my parents don't think so. I don't know what to do. Can you help me and give me some advice? If you were my parents what would you do?
My problem is I think I need privacy. My parents just wander in my room any time they want. Mom comes in while I am at school or off hanging with friends and she says she is cleaning or putting away laundry. It never looks like Mom cleans and I have told her I will put my own clothes away and I can clean my own room. I think she comes in to just snoop around. I sometimes notice my stuff is moved around. Dad just comes in whenever he wants. Even if my door is shut my parents just walk in. They don't knock or anything. I have been playing a game with my friends and Dad has walked in to say something. That just distracts me and I get killed in my game. There is a girl at school and we sort of like each other and she wrote me a note. I forgot and left it in my room. When I got home Mom and Dad had all sorts of questions about her. Both Mom and Dad have come in while I was getting dressed and have seen me naked. Mom tells me not to worry about that because she used to change my diapers. Dad says I don't have anything he hasn't got or seen before. Dad also came in once when I was . . . well, you know. I tried locking my door once but I got chewed out for that.
I have tried talking to my parents. Mom asks what I have to hide. She said that makes her more curious. She says if I don't have anything to keep from them then I shouldn't be so stressed over them coming in my room. Dad just says it is his house and he will go wherever he wants. Dad also says sometimes he needs to make sure I am not doing stuff I shouldn't. Dad says I can have privacy when I grow up and move and get my own house. I think I am a good kid and I don't drink or smoke or do any kind of drugs and I don't want to either. I don't really even get in trouble so I don't know why my parents don't trust me. Dad says if I continue to "whine" about it that he will spank me.
