Im writing to seek your advice. I think my parents are very unreasonable. Let me give you the facts. First of all, I have to eat fruit and vegetables every day. I like fruit so thats OK, but I really hate vegetables. I think I should have the right to choose what I want to eat. In addition, they give me money to buy clothes, this should be good, but it isnt. My mum always comes shopping with me. However, I cant buy the clothes I want, she chooses really boring things for me and I always hate them. Moreover, I have to go to bed at 9.00 I dont have the right to watch TV. Furthermore, I have to share a room with my sister. Im very tidy and she isnt. The problem is that mum gets annoyed with both of us when the room is a mess. Its not fair. To sum up, Im fed up, what should I do? Best regards Lina
