How can I convince my mum to let me have a snake?
SHES SCAAARED OF SNAAAKES and i love snakes, i have the money, responsibility and everything. shes just scared, she even said she wouldnt get one for free, and she cant even look at a snake even on the computer T____T
I know you'll hate this answer,
But it is her house...and if her fears are serious, then that's her right.
Alternatively find a reptile shop to show her they're not an evil beast, even if from a distance.
Also only calmly respectfully discussing will help, if you argue she'll just dread the topic even more.
won't work, she won't even look at a snake for 1 second :\
i guess i have to wait till i get my own house T____T
Mothers cannot be 'forced'. You try and force her,and she will reject it even more.If only mosquitoes sucked fat instead of blood.

Don't try to force your mother into getting you a snake, try to ease her into the idea of having a snake in the home.However, it seems more like a phobia and it will take time.
ha ha my mum was the same when i wanted a snake i kept hassling her and she caved in and since having one now two of my own she has a whole diff view on them now she still dont like them to close to her but she now respects them instead of thinking a good snake is a dead one
Jist bring it home hahaha give her no choice
Move out. Or wait until you're old enough. Only options buddy.Owns 10 Black Rock Scorpions, 3 Hatchling Bearded dragons, WTB: Blue tongue babies, delivered to Orange NSW or near by!
Well i keeped hassling my mum
i was going as i was getting it
print off fact sheet, reptile form's and
leave them some where were she will see them
and she gave and "said Fine you can have only have 1. where the SUFF we have to fill out"
so i got 2 heheheI <3 Fish , I <3 snakes
Force? You can't force her into doing anything.
Respect that it is her house and you must respect her wishes. Wait until you are old enough to move out then get one - as long as your landlord allows of course.
If you are that insistent on getting one why not sit and have a real conversation with her about it... And don't start with "You must let me". It won't work. And if she says no then it is a no.Proud Keeper of Samson the Wheatbelt Stimson, and Gremlin the N. Amyae.
again i will say it some of you are very disrespectful to your parents
you expect them to treat you with respect and to treat you right yet on the other hand you want to 'force' them around to your way of thinking
like it or not phobias are real and forcing someone who has one about snakes into allowing YOU to get one is downright rude
its her HOUSE not yours, do as she asks and wait till until your old enough then move out and get as many as you want
seriously i can NOT believe some of you and wonder how you would react if your parent made you do something you didnt want to do, im sure if the shoe was on the other foot you would all be carrying on about your parents disrespecting you

let some mice loose in the house and then tell her snake will scare them away once the mice are gone she may over come her fear of snakes and want more lol
I first told my mum i wanted a snake when I was eleven but we had a cat and told me not until the cat died....that cat lived forever and only died recently. Again I told her wanted a snake and she said no. Then I went to a rep store, paid for my snake and brought my mum there to look at her.
Once my mum saw her it was love!
She is still scared and to this day hasn't held her but she'll text me asking me if the snakes ok, is there anything she needs etc haha.
Try to explain it's not a passing want maybe (as kids do one day they want an PS3 then they're convinced they need a guitar), my 'want' lasted 11 years before I ever got one.
