Her Walls

My 16 yr old daugther still likes to write on her walls….as you can see, I gave up trying to make her stop.

    I don't understand why this is a bad thing – 1 day of painting will fix it all when she's done, heck, make her paint it!
    Until then, let her express herself. It's not like she's permanently destroying or hurting anything.

      Unless she's planning to take the “art” with her when she leaves. In which case, there's drywall work ahead.

    I love it! It is a beautiful artistic expression. I hope that you are cataloging all of it.

    I'd ask her what To Write Love On Her Arms means to her, instead of worrying about her being creative

    • kailiia

      To write love on her arms is a statement about preventing people from feeling alone to help to stop self mutilation. It is supposed to be a positive thing.

        To Write Love On Her Arms is a non profit charity that helps connect people to the resources they need to help with addiction, depression, etc…Why don’t you Google it before you make smartass remarks.

          It’s also a song by Hawthorne Heights. There’s a song by Helio also called that. Apparently you didn’t bother to google it either. The writing is hard to read but I think it even says “thinking of this song To Write Love on Her Arms” etc…. If you enlarge the image you can see it.

          The Hawthorne Heights song actually is about cutting so in a way you are right Kailiia


    I could picture my own daughter doing this. She is 22 & has pictures taped all over her walls & ceiling.

    i did this sort of thing with pictures when i was in middle school. Then, i got sick of everything looking like a scrapbook and tore it all down. Now, my room is zen as hell. It will pass.

    Suggestion: Screw sheets of painted plywood to the walls, and let the kid write/draw all over it. Then the kid can take it with him/her when he/she leaves. Do this also on graffiti-prone walls outside, and later sell the results as “street art”.

    That's beautiful. Thanks, Mom, for 'giving up'. I love this.

    Am surprised no one else is disturbed by this… All I kept thinking about were the single spaced, block letter diaries Kevin Spacey kept in the movie “Seven.”

    That is beautiful! Your daughter is obviously a creative soul, and at least she knows she has a place that she can release all of her feelings and thoughts. And a can of paint will fix it when she moves out.

    I recall my walls looking similar when I was that age.

    I’m 30 but I actually did the same thing when I was in high school. I wished I taken some pictures of it back then

    Hey, it’s not too hard to paint it when she’s gone!

    Plus I had the same desires a few years ago, and my parents compromised with me and let me draw and write with sidewalk chalk on darkly painted walls. Worked out well for everyone!

    Oh I love it!!  You must be very proud of her – she’s very eloquent and articulate!

    My mom would kill me. I understand that it’s “art” and all, but that is what paper is for.
