Make-Up

Dear GZ Advisor,

I need advice; my mom won't let me wear eyeliner and i am almost 14, any way to persuade her?
 
Dear Juliet,
 
Talking things out with your mom is probably the best way to resolve this issue.  You should tell her how you feel about wearing makeup, and why you feel that way, and in turn listen to how she's feeling.  Be sure that this conversation is calm and rational.  You won't get anywhere if you're yelling about how unfair it is that she's not letting you do what everyone else is doing.  Let her know that you feel like you're at that stage of maturity, and it's a way of expressing yourself.  Find out why she doesn't want you wearing eyeliner - she could have a good reason that you're unaware of.  Hopefully if you sit down and have a conversation you can reach a compromise or understanding.
 
Sincerely,
GZ Advisor
