How I Convince My Parents to Allow For Blogging

If you are a student, I’m 100%  sure, Your parents didn’t allow you for blogging. It is because the over care and love on you. They have only one dream about you, ‘My Son want to study well and get a best job’. You are studying for get a best job. If you love blogging than that job, You want to convince your parents. They didn’t know what is blogging and how to make money from it. They think that, you spend your time on Facebook or watching movies on Internet.


I also faced the same situation. I’m a 16 years old Guy studying in +2. I sat in front of my laptop 24×7. My Mother always scolds at me and she complained about me at PTA meetings and my teachers come with a lot of advices. But, I used some tricks to convince my parents to allow blogging. Now I’m really happy with Blogging. (But, I didn’t forget to study). In this post, I’m trying to share that trick I used 😉 .

Note : Don’t think that I’m saying that you don’t go to a job. I’m telling you my  real life incident which happened to me.

1. I Showed the best Blogs on the Internet

Show your parents the best blogs on the internet and tell your parents how they make millions with their blog. Show them their posts, comments, social engagements. It will help them to make a clear idea about Blogging.

    In India there are very few peoples who are aware of Blogging ( not really that few but still), so parents usually get worried. Blogging is a great profession and if you post religiously then it much more amazing. Apart from this : Very informative post & Congrats.
