Youth Counselling

My father always sees me watching TV

I am 14 years old. I finish my studies before my father returns home from office at night. But when he comes home, he always sees me watching TV. He scolds me, but I’m not able to make him understand that I have already studied. After returning from school I go for tuitions and then to play. After that I study and watch TV, and at that very time my father comes home! He tells me to study in the morning from 4 a.m., but I am not able to do so because of being tired the whole day. Please help me.

Dear Sid, you write that you are busy every day with tuitions and studies. Only after that you relax by watching TV. When your father comes home he sees you in front of the TV and thinks that you are wasting time and he scolds you. The members of your family who see you studying should explain the situation to him. You can also ask your father to talk to your teachers in school and they will confirm your good performance in studies. This will make your father happy.
