  • I would certainly hope that that is normal. It says something sad about a family if the children can't or don't feel comfortable talking to their parents about their problems. It says something even worse for society if it is not normal for children to bring the problems to their parents.
  • Yes, i had trouble at school and you need to have someone you can talk to about it. wether its your mother or father or a friend at school. Its best to let people know how you are rather than bottling it up. You can learn a lot from your parents. Listen to what they have to say on the matter.
  • I think it may not be normal, but it IS the right thing to do. There is too much bullying and excluding in schools these days. I think that it is not healthy to hide all this anger and hatred from being picked on from one's parents. They CAN help.
  • Sure, everybody always needs someone to talk to!
  • i think you should go get help for your problem
  • Yes..A mother should be your support system in any and all situations. I think its great for a 14 year old girl to be able to open up and talk to her mother about ANYTHING. especially problems at school. I highly encourage that to continue.
  • I think its normal to talk to your mom at any age. Its awesome that you can talk to your mom about things. I was never able to. She would never listen. So go for it. She's been around the block a time or two and I'm sure she could relate to you.
  • I think that's not SUPER usual. I don't know many girls who are or were very open with their mom's. My mother didn't know ANYTHING about my social life at school when i was 14 and barely does now. Any mom that gets that kind of openness must be doing something right.
  • Yes it is very sensible of her. It will be very helpful for your Mother to understand things
  • I wrote a beautiful answer and Answerbag went temporary unavailable...urgh Yes sweetheart, talk to your Mom. Thats what we are here for to help our kids when they have difficult times. My girl talks to me about the good and bad of school. She can give you moral support everyday through the high school years which are just simply not easy years on all. Mom can help you through things...good luck I REALLY WISH i COULD USE COMMENT!!! To those that think it is not normal to talk to your Mom about anything....what kind of households did you grow up in? Absence of a moms hand to guide you through it. I am sorry for you all. Thats just sad!
  • Yeah, they can help. This one time, my school was having a 3 day trip to Quebec City, and this kid was bullying me (chucking basketballs, name calling, etc..) so my mom noticed that I seemed sad, and I told her what happened. The kid didn't go to Quebec. I felt bad, but he deserved it. Also, it helps having tough friends to knock so and so out. That's friendship.
  • definetly! im 16 and i talk to my mom about people at work who are mean to me and stuff, everyone needs their mom. their is no age to were it is "un-normal" to talk to your mom about stuff like that.
  • Not only is it normal it's nessary for your protection. After all how is she going ot do her job as your mom if you don't do your job as her child and tell her what's going on? So talk to her no matter how hard or uncomfortable it is. You both need to keep the lines of communication open so you can grow up as a well rounded adult.
  • yes that is what Mom is for....to confide and look to for answers, comfort and guidance during these difficult times
  • hell yes its normal
  • Don't care of what's normal or not. They have no right to be mean to her at all.
  • Yes it's normal. Rather tell her, don't suffer. Friends are just kids and won't give you the right advice. Moms were teenagers once, and they know how it feels to be teased at school. The bonus now, is that us moms are much cleverer than the bullies!! ;)
  • Yes, there's nothing wrong with talking to your parents. In fact, it's probably good for both to have conversations occasionally.
  • Yes it is normal, I think its great if you feel that you can do that with your mum and have that trust between you.
  • Your mum should always be your best friend - the one person who you can always depend upon. If she knows the answer she will tell you and if she doesn't know she'll do everything in her power to find out. Mother love is unconditional and irrevokable, she would feel deeply hurt if you suffered people being mean to you and not let her help. Doesn't matter how old you get you'll always be her child and she'll always want to look out for you.
  • Of course it is - who better to talk to than mom - thats one of the many things moms are for.
  • yes i told my mum that a bunch of girls at school were saying stuff and bullying me, so my mum rings up the parents of the girls and screams her head off at them and well they didn't bother me after that
  • yeah when i was 15 i always talked to my mom about stuff like that
  • Sure. I had trouble like that at age 14, and tlaknig to my mom was very helpful.
  • Yes. You must have a really good relationship with your mom.
  • Normal or not it's more sesnsible than keeping silent
  • Absolutely! I think a child of ANY age should be able to talk to their parent/parents about anything! If you can't count on your parent/parents to help you, who can you count on?
  • The closest and best friend is a mother who can be trust and give the best advices due to her experiences. She will give you the best advices because she loves you.
  • I know when I was growing up, I was too embarassed to tell my mom how I was treated in jr. high. I didn't trust her to comfort me or understand. The relationship I have with my daughter is very different. She comes and talks to me about most things...things that go right and things that go wrong. As for coming to me when she's teased, I'm the first person she comes to. I've taught her how to use her wits, not her fists. Ok, I admit, probably not the best parenting here...but hell, it works! She'll come to me with a problem she's having in school with some other kid - either boy or girl. We'll do a post-mortum of the conversation and come up with some witty retort for her to reply next time something like it is said. Not only does this open up the lines of conversation between her and I, but also it helps her defend herself. I was pretty defenseless in Jr. High and High School...and I'll be damned if I let my daughter go through it as a door mat. Ok, I know - no nominations for Mother of the Year...
  • i hope so! every kid needs their mother, or father. only because they were young, contrary to beliefs. they'll be more understanding and able to help you through it.
  • yes....always tell mom. Mom knows all.
  • Yes and very healthy and it shows that her and her mom have a good relationship and that is great.
  • I'm 14..... I talk to my Mom about everything lol.. Its normal and Natural.. YOu should be 35 and still tlak to your Mom as shes your best friend
  • Absolutely! That is what parents are for. Your parents are your best resource for help, wisdom and advice, provided of course that you have good parents. If your parents are drunks or drug addicts, all bets are off and you might be better to go to someone else.
