Children & Young People advice I am a 13 year old boy.Today I was cycling with a friend and I managed to get a flat tire, whilst trying to fix it, my phone fell in the water. After fixing it i went to the City centrcentre to see of my phone could be repaired. When i was there i realized i didnt have my wallet with me anymore. In the road back home my tire was flat again.

My parents are now really mad, cause I broke my phone, my bike and lost my wallet. Wat dan I do to make amends???

I am so sorry for you! As a Mom of a 13 yr old I feel for you! I am guessing your parents are mad because they feel like you were not taking care of your belongings.

All of these things could happen to anyone. If you do not typically loose or break things then they really should not be angry with you - they may just be stressed out about the costs and placing their stress on you. If you do break and loose things regularly they may be justified in being upset.

Either way I can tell you do care because you want to make amends and you sound like you do feel bad. Tell your parents how sorry you are about everything that has happened today. Let them know you are upset and that you'd like to try and make up for it. Can you do extra chores or some small jobs to help cover the costs? In the least make this offer.

For you personally It's healthy and normal to mourn your losses and feel sad about them. Let yourself do this then pick yourself up by reminding yourself that what happened today is now in the past - learn the lessons from it and know that tomorrow will be a new day full of possibilities!

Bad things happen to everyone - it's what you do with the experience and lessons you learn that make all the difference in your life! Big hugs from a Mom!!!
