This girl has a real funny sense of humour... Don't worry op I think she's just joking, pretty sharp one you got there... Not many people can think of saying such things when they experience something like this... I'm sure she was just a Harry potter fan and op isn't ill- treating her. But if she isn't joking... Time to advertise for a new Dobby...
I get frustrated when religious types don't like Harry potter. It's all about love, loyalty, and knowledge defeating evil. where's the devil in that? yes, it has supernatural stuff. But in the old days, when people had better knowledge of language,God was called supernatural, because after all it just means "more than natural.". Plus, Harry Potter rocks! It's like a giant gourmet feast that goes on and on, whereas the hunger games, which I liked too, is more just a really nice meal.
To everyone saying he hunger games copied battle royale you've obviously never seen or read either. The only similarities are kids killing; are you trying to say battle royale started that? So get of your hg hating bandwagon and learn to think for yourselves instead of blindly following other idiots' claims.
Just to clear it up the hunger games is not about kids killing each other... It's about the government having absolute power and how one person can make a difference and change the world. Yes the kids have to kill each other but it's not just for the sake of killing each other. There is a point!
467- The Hunger Games is practically all about kids killing kids. So basically the only big difference between the two is that The Hunger Games has a cheesy love triangle added in to make it sell. (Also this storyline has been done multiple times. Look up "The Most Dangerous Game.")
I think she was saying it's horrible parenting because of the way it's worded. It kind of makes it sound like the daughter did chores for years and the mother bought her clothes for the first time in years (which would be horrible parenting because around that age you're growing a lot so none of her clothes would fit properly). Maybe that's what she was thinking?
Nope, she helped with the chores for several years (which is not shocking since she's 15 years old), and coincidentally said that one day after getting new jeans... The translation is a bit confusing, I agree, but that what's your brain is for ^^ And getting a kid to help with chores is good parenting : when the kid lives on his/her own, he/she'll be better off if he/she at least knows the basics...
It's not like she worked for 3years straight. She had to go to school, homework, freetime and probably more. Her mother didn't lock her in a room and made her clean by herself. That would be horrible parenting. Her mother did it with her. And she probably gave her more presents that op didn't speak of. (christmas, Easter, Halloween)
In my opinion if OP hasn't bought her daughter new clothes in several years that is bad parenting. No she shouldn't buy her daughter new things every week but at least buy her new clothes every year. Several years could very well be 7 or 8 years. That's a long time for a child to not get new clothes. Even at 15 our bodies grow, maybe not as much as it did when we were younger but it still does.
Read the books. The movies aren't nearly as good. J.K. Rowling is a really good author; the books are well written, and only some of the first, and most of the second are a tad boring. I skipped half of the second, but there's not much action in it anyway. The sixth is by far the best, in my opinion.
Then what's the name of the creepy little elf from lord of the rings?? I'm with you 5 I thought it was lord of the rings too.... I'm more if a star wars person anyway.
