I'm a straight-A honors student who doesn't talk back, doesn't sneak out with friends or any of that nonsense. I think I deserve a lot better than he treats me.
I definitely think you deserve better treatment considering your current good behaviour. Although there should be a line between friendship and parenting, there's no need to get all upset and lecture-y about a tank for God's sake. It's not like you're getting 100 dogs XD
EDIT: OH GOD I AM SO LATE FOR THAT ONE. LOL
My parents let me do whatever I want as long as I behave and do well in school. That's hard enough sometimes, lmao. I know they whine and yell because they love me and they know I whine and yell because love them, lmfao. The only reason why they wouldn't want me to get more fish is because if I have to move somewhere it will be dramatic if I've got a bunch of tanks or one huge one. They also don't want me spending my "hard earned money" because I don't have a "real job" yet (I work at my school).
