Bingo. Best advice on this thread.
Theres a history here, I don't think people arbitrarily hate their children's hobbies. But is it something a serious talk can't fix? Even if your parents dislike how you spend your time, I think it seems important to try and hold firm. I think that we all have obligations to the people who brought us into the world, fed us, clothed us, and gave us a bed. But as you get older, we assert our independace and part of that should ultimately be the freedom to choose how to spend your time.
Holy crap! That is the freaking best advice i have read on this forum to date. Except maybe: Don't go emo.
