Kendra really wants to get a pair too, but her mom doesn’t think they’re safe and says Kendra is not allowed to have them. Kendra wants to purchase a pair while she’s at the mall with Michelle. What should Kendra do?

Is she going to listen to her mom or her friend? Kendra should listen to her mom and say to her friend,"My mom says that I shouldn't so I really shouldn't." Or she could say,"You know I don't think these are safe."

She should listen to her mom...rather safe than sorry!!!!!!!!!!

Kendra should listen to her mom or she could get very very hert she could brake her arm or leg or neck!! LISTEN TO YOUR MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!

she should listen to her mom

I Think that she should do what her mom said. She should tell her friend that she might get hurt also if she buys them.

i think kendra should forget about the roller shoes.

I think she should ask he mom

well, just by looking at them, think they are coll and all ,but i think its best that she listens to her mom and not buy them.(If you want them really bad, try to show your mom that you can handle it and you never know if she might give them to you for a presant.)


peace peplez!!!!!

YOU SHOULD'NT DO IT BECOUSE YOU WILL GET IN TROULD AND YOU WANT BE ABLE TO GO ANY WHERE THIS SUMMER.

I think she shoulnt buy the shoes because you should always listen to your parents

I think she should tell somebody immediatly cause you shouold never talk to someone that you do not know dont ever tell them where you live or your address or they can find you and do really bad things to you

I think that Kendra should not by any of them because what if she need that money for something else then should will not have any money. I also think that Kendra should talk to her mother to get her all the things she needs to wear on her before buying the rolling skates. Or call her if she could by them.And also listening to her mom.

i think michell should ask her mom if she could teach her some.

I think thas she should not by them

I think Kendra should be patient and wait till Michelle,s mom says yes she can have it and don,t be sneeky

i think she should call her mom and ask her

I think she shold call her mom for her anser

She should honor her mother

Kendra should not purchase the shoes if her mom says no because if Kendra goes home with the shoes her mom will get her in big trouble and Kendra will have to exchange them. It is not worth it to take the shoes with her

i think that she should not get the roller shoes unless her mom says it is o.k. to get them. really seriously

i think she should listen to her mom and be patient.

Listen to your mom.Did you know there is a saying that says good things come to people that wait

I think Kendra should listen to her mom because if she buys it she could get hurt.

I think Kendra should either call her mom and try to persuade her to allow her to buy it OR she could just not buy it at all and wait until she's somewhat older. Maybe when Kendra's at the mall with her own mother, she could try and convince her mom if she could buy it. Tell her that she'll wear a helmet and all that safe stuff.

she should listen to her mom because she knows best maybe she'll find something better in the mall but she should just listen to her mom and be a good example for her friend

I think she should not get a pair because because her mom told her not to.

I think she should not buy the pair of roller skates.

I think that kendra can wait until she is old enough to the point were her mom thinks that they are safer for kendra.

I THINK SHE SHOULD BUY THE SHOES ITS HER MONEY AND IF KENDRA GETTS HURT IT WOULD BE HER FALT AND ITS NOT HER MOMS FALT.

I think Kendra should listen to her mom."Mom's always no best".If Kendra mom said she doesn't want Kendra to buy roller skates i think Kendra should not!

I think Kendra should listen to her mom and and not buy the roller skates beacause if she does buy them she is not listening to her mom. I think Kendra should first ask then buy it.And if her mom says no she should understand. Her mom is saying it for her own good. I would listen to my parents and not buy it without permission. If she does buy it her mom would not trust her anymore after she even said no. So I think Kendra should listen to her mom and ask and then buy them.

listin to your mom she says no she means no and do you really need them no just for some events because your moms probly going to take them anyway

I think that she should do whatever she wants, she has free will

what i think you should do is to listen to your mother or she might scream at you or ground you so listen to her

Lisen to your mom u could be out with your friend or stuck in the house on Satarday night. cause if you buy them you will be grounded thats wores than buying the shoes and breaking you leg at the mall

Kendra should tell her mom she will wear a helmet and be really safe, she could also say, I really want this and it`s my money. Also she could listen to her mom and not buy it and buy something else.

she should listen to her mom.what if she falls off.

i would ask my mom can i buy the shoes with my own money

Kendra should call her mom and convince her to let her buy the roller shoes.Tell her the good things about roller shoes,but leave out the bad things,so that she will let her buy the roller shoes.

i think she sould tell her mom that i'm only where it when they are somewhere safe

Kendra should tell her friend that she loves the shoes but wants to talk to her mom first

if she already knows that her mom will say no then dont call cause u would just make the mom nad

i think that kendra should obey her mom for safty.

I think she should listen to her mom. Maybe if her friend that does have them can come over to her house to show her mom they are not dangerous.

Those are called Healys she should listen to her mom

i think Kendra should listen to her mom because her mom could be right. Why? because maybe if she was allowed to get them she could still hurt her self really badly and everything will go wrong.
So what if she cant get those shoes but maybe she can get a different pair that is safer or anything else that she wants. BUT THATS ONLY WHAT I THINK!!!!:)

I think Kendra should tell her mom that Michelle was getting them and ask her mom if she could get them because Michelle is getting them.

she should try to talk with her mother and tell her she really want's the shoe's and maybe she will buy the pair of shoe's to her

I think Kendra should listen to her mom and not get the skates if her mom doesn't think they are safe. Just because her friend is getting the roller shoes doesn't mean Kendra needs them also.

I THINK KENDRA SHOULD NOT BUY THE PAIR OF SHOES IF HER MOM DOSEN'T WANT HER TO BUY THEM SHE CAN BUY SOME OTHER SHOES THAT HER MOM WANTS HER TO BUY AND SHE DON'T HAVE TO BUY THE SAME KINS OF SHOES THAT HER FRIEND IS BUYING .

kendra needs to obey her mom because one day she wont be there to help make the right decision!!!! so she dosen't need to get the rollar blades!!!!
