For a musical I am doing with a lot of dancing, I need to wear character heels. My parents are "opposed" for some reason against my character heels because they think it's a health problem for me, even though the heel is only one inch and the whole thing is built for dancing in. They want to buy me other shoes, but I need to wear my character heels! What can I do to convince them? They are CONVINCED that their way of thinking is right without listening to me, too.

Just tell them that if you got hurt or whatever they're afraid of, it would be your fault and you would deal with it. [ Helpful's advice column | Ask Helpful A Question ]
karenR answered Wednesday August 3 2005, 1:30 pm: I know what they are concerned about. Tell them that you will only be wearing them during the musical and that injuries/health problems occur in those who wear them all the time, and not occasional wear. :) [ karenR's advice column | Ask karenR A Question ]
ballerina04 answered Wednesday August 3 2005, 12:24 am: Exactly, they are made for dancing. I've personally used them before for a whole act of dancing (ballet), and nothing bad has happened. If there is some sort of review you can find in a dance magazine or something, show them that to reassure them.
Tell them your director said that you have to wear them, and that you'll be as careful as possible in them as you can be. Good luck! If you need any more help, feel free to send me something. [ ballerina04's advice column | Ask ballerina04 A Question ]

Michelley answered Tuesday August 2 2005, 11:16 pm: talked to whoevers in charge of the musical and get them to tell your parents its 100% unexceptable to wear anything but the heels. tell your parents it'll only be for a couple hours and you'll look out of place without them cuz everyone else will be wearing them
