How do I get my mom to let me wear goth clothes?

Don't wear that garbage, it's the first step on the road to ruin. Don't waste your life away listening to crappy music and dressing like a vampire wannabe. Wear normal clothes and hit the books. Stop hanging out with goth kids, they'll all be unemployed and living with their parents while you're making a good living with a good job.

What your parents want is to feel confident that you aren't going to do risky things like drugs, sex, et cetera. They're parents and that's what they worry about. If you want them to let you wear that kind of clothing, then first gain their trust and don't give them the cold shoulder. Then they'll absolutely love you and will feel much more at ease letting you do more what you want.

Yeah right. If they loved me, would they practically hold me prisoner and never let me go anywhere?

Thanks masterwill16. But I don't think that will work. My parents are really smart and they have the eyes of an eagle. I can't get anything past them.

Youll get over it. This will very likely just be a phase in your life. Youll look back on yourself later in life, and realize that it was a dumb thing to try.

Wear them underneath your 'approved' clothes then change once you are out of sight!

Talk to your mom like an adult and she may start seeing you as one. Try finding a compromise between the two of you

Maybe you should find out 'why' she doesn't want you wearing those kinds of clothes. I don't know, but you might be able to hash it out with her and come to an understanding.

Just do it she can't control you for ever I'm a guy and it took a while for my dad to understand I gotta have my freedom and your mom has to realize the same for you.

it's expensive to dress like that. so if you're paying for your clothes, do what you want. if you're mom buys them, she's going to want them to be a little more appropriate than goth. besides, the style looks immature and unsophisticated.
