Have your parents ever yelled at you for something that wasn’t your fault?  Have you tried to explain to your parents why you were right, but they failed to understand?  Do you want to be able to win an argument with your parents?

Everyone has gotten in trouble for something that wasn’t their fault.  And sometimes the reason they get into trouble is because they were not able to explain their side of the story.  If you feel that you were punished for no reason and want to explain to your parents why you were not to blame, try writing an essay to your parents.

Writing an essay will give you time to organize your thoughts, explain why you are not at fault and give your parents the opportunity to think about how they are handling the situation.

When you write this essay to your parents, think of three reasons why you should not be in trouble.  Usually, there is always more than one reason why a person should or should not be blamed for something, coming up with three reasons shows that you have taken the time to think about the situation.

During each of these three reasons, make sure that you explain thoroughly how each of these reasons demonstrates your innocence.  The more thorough you are, the more likely they are to take your reasons seriously.

Sometimes, parents act without realizing the entire situation and sometimes they just need time to deal with something umcomfortable that has happened.  By writing them an essay you give them the opportunity to read it, understand how you feel and then react.  Nine times out of ten, your parents will be less upset at your actions, knowing that you have thought about the situation in detail.

Arguments aren’t always about winning or losing, they are about being able to communicate with one another.  Writing an essay shows your parents that you thought about their thoughts and feelings and in turn, they will think about yours.
