Dear BellaDear Bella,

My mother doesn’t trust me anymore because she goes through my phone and finds things. Also because I talk to boys and flirt with them. I am 15 years old though.

She says that I’m looking for sex but I’m really not.

I just want to regain her trust but she just keeps finding things on my phone, in my text messages. It’s annoying because if she refrains from looking through my phone, then we wouldn’t have these issues.

Please Help

Dear Please Help

Having a close relationship with your mother as a young adult is one of the best pleasures in life but the opposite can be a nightmare. You need to regain your mothers trust because it appears that she lost it somehow.

You can do that by letting her in on little secrets and having girl talks with her about stuff you wouldn’t tell anyone else.

You need to prove to your mother that her “wanting sex” opinion of you is far from the truth and she can trust you. Let mommy in and see what happens. Best of luck.

Bella
