You're right, it is selfish.
It takes years to build up trust, but only a moment to knock it down.
You physically cannot earn someone's trust that fast.

depends on what u did. if u were rude than become super respectful etc... i think u could build it up enough in a week to get her wondering whether things are going to stay this way. She may let u out of the house just to see if u are really trustworthy.
ps. i'm not even gonna bother to say it's selfish

It certainly IS selfish & immature... and... you can't.
It takes some time to rebuild someone's trust in you once you've broken it; takes a lot more than a week to prove you've changed & are trustworthy. I don't know what your mom is like, or how forgiving she is, but once someone has broken the trust I had in them... well... I may never get over it... but, that's just me... :)

Do you want her trust back so some type of discipline will be removed? Or simply because you want your mother to be able to trust you again? Figure out the answer to that and then talk to your mother in a mature, intelligent manner.

You have a heart problem. You sound like one selfish teenager who really doesn't love his/her mother. Instead of trying to win her trust back, try being trustworthy and honestly changing your heart.

Haha!!! Thank for calling me selfish (that was sarcasm) I do not appreciate being called immature and selfish. I just don't want my friends or people I hang with to forget about me because I am going to be grounded for a long time. I DO LOVE MY MOM AND YOU CAN'T TELL ME OTHER WISE OKAY!!!! No one can sit here and tell me who you think I do and do not love because you do not know me let alone know what is going on in my life!!!!!!!

Didn't mean to offend you. But ALL people make judgements based upon EVIDENCE. If the evidence points to a conclusion, reasonable people come to that conclusion. I was simply coming to the reasonable conclusion supported by the evidence you gave. If you are not selfish and you love them, why not share the evidence that supports that fact?

dont go by the points of the conclusion duhh

Your question sounded like you simply wanted to earn her trust back so you could "do whatever you want..." rather than because you genuinely cared about her and you even admitted in your question that it "sounds selfish". So, what conclusion do you expect people to come to?

I think that my answer was the most helpful. It's important to tell the truth, not just what makes people feel better. To change ones actual relationship with her parents is going to make her whole life better rather than just saying what will patronize her to give her a happy feeling.

if she want her parents trust she go have to do whats in her heart even she been messin up with her parents for while
Report as
I understand what you're saying but that is with the assumption that what is in the person's heart is going to better that relationship. The wording of the question suggested otherwise which is why I responded as I did. People speak from the heart. Her words suggested that her heart wanted to "do what she wants" instead of what her parents want, rather than a heart towards showing love to her parents by honor and obedience. Understand what I mean?

Gaining someone's trust back takes time. A week is not long enough. It could take months or years.

If only it were that easy, it wont take forever but its gonna take a while. Give her time, if you try and rush it, it could just make the distance between the two if you greater.
