60: I was thinking maybe it was a pair of 'must have' jeans the daughter really wanted, since it sounds like it was a special reward.

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...

#180 it's hard to say which is better because although they're both fiction it still feels like they're in different genres. That'd be like comparing Beyonce to Carrie Underwood.

I read both Harry Potter is still way better. I love the story in both but the hunger games was written poorly compared to harry potter in its details. And OP's daughter would seriously agree

Anyone else think 194 is trying a little too hard there? Username and pic. Leave some to the imagination!

That's ironic your parents said HP was the devil...because the hunger games is about the sacrificing of children & war...

They're completely different genres, so it's hard to compare them. Also, are you 10? Harry Potter is available EVERYWHERE, it's not exactly hard to find in public libraries or even online.

Yay, Game of Thrones (well, A Song of Ice and Fire actually) ! However, I wouldn't say that's a book series that pre-teens can read... It can get quite gory/violent at some times ^^

100- he probably watched the movies instead of reading the books, I did and now I'm reading the books but still not everyone knows it

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 mea

375, I'm pulling this stat out of my ass but 90% of girls claim to be one of the boys, this is usually not true.

It's hilarious that your parents let you read a book about kids brutally killing each other, but won't let you read Harry Potter books.

Reply

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.

You really don't deserve to have an opinion on the Hunger Games vs. Harry Potter deal unless you've read all the books. Don't worry, that's just my opinion. I'm just glad no one's brought up Twilight (whoops).

Reply

314– Ahhh, but that's where you're wrong. Harry Potter Books> Hunger Games Books Harry Potter Movies< Hunger Games Movie. HP movies were terrible, and a complete fail. But that's just my opinion.

Reply

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!

Reply

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 don't find this to be horrible parenting. The daughter likes Harry Potter so she's doing something right. Seriously, justify how this is bad parenting.

You saying that having a teenager doing chores is bad parenting? So what do you do all day? Sit on your ass? Id like to see your house when you grow up.

So she did chores for 15 years? Seriously? Learn to read the FML before you post idiotic comments. It clearly says several years, not 15, and I doubt you know whether or not he ever have her other gifts.

Are you serious? Appreciation for doing chores? I never got anything for doing my chores, they simply had to get done. I don't understand why everyone expects rewards for everything. I see no horrible parenting here.

Reply

She did chores for several YEARS only to get A pair of jeans. I don't know about you but, if I actually needed a pair of jeans, my mom would have gotten them for me

Reply

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?

Reply

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...

Reply

Maybe 2 meant since OP's mother rewarded her with new jeans because clothes are a necessity and you don't just buy your kids clothes when they do chores

Reply

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)

Reply

427- Several: being more than two but fewer than many in number. Just because it sounds like seven, doesn't mean it's synonymous.

Reply

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.

58: Well, you're missing the pun of the FML and all of the references people are making on the comments. That's enough to confuse some.

If you're a 90s kid I think you did miss much. HP was my childhood, I grew up with it, preordering the book and finally getting it on the day was the highlight of my year. Ah, the memories.

Reply

#48... For tge sake of humanity, please do one of two things. Go to the nearest bookstore and get the whole series OR go to the nearest cliff and jump off. You are a Disgrace to mankind....

Those are the rules of house-elves: give them clothes and they're free. OP, next time, treat her with ice cream or movies instead OR don't treat her like a house-elf.

totally agree! i remember getting back from my year 7 summer camp the day the order of the phoenix came out and my stepdad had pre-ordered it as a coming home present :')

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.

53 I've never been so upset with a comment before. I guess I care to much for humanity, but HOLY SHIT!!!!! The stupidity from 53's comment has made me sad :( why?!?!

53 - It's not our choice to be born. It's like saying to a tree if you didn't want to be paper, you shouldn't have grown. You don't control it, it just happens. Welcome to this new system, Nature.

98 and 123- That's a quote from another book. Don't freak out. Pretty sure she was following the theme of responding with literary quotes like OP's daughter.
