I'm 14 going on 15, and I think by this time the mother-daughter relationship should be stable. I really want my mother to trust me, and I have tried all manner of ways to earn that trust. I can't get a phone. I can't listen to music during the week?

In regards to the phone - a phone is a privilege, not a right. It also costs money to get a phone, i.e., purchasing the phone, adding the line to the existing account, adding features, such as texting, data, etc. Etc. What are you willing to give up in order to get the phone? What is the family's rule about having a cell phone? If you don't know these answers, ASK you mom in a polite manner.

As far as listening to music during the week - that statement seems a little vague. Listening to music while you are studying? Listening to music so loud you can't hear your parents? What kind of music are you listening to? More details would be helpful.

have you tried having a honest conversation with your mom. Ask her what. You need to do or what you should work more on. Communication seems to be lacking. Talk to your mom
