This is more aimed at females. But did anyone have like major trouble letting there parents let them go? My dad has been an arse about me joing for about 3years and has been adament I cant join untill Im 18. Becuase Im a girl and all that and "guys can cope beter blah blah" He then came out with "I dont want you coming back to me in 20years saying I forced you to join, I belive in national serivice but your too young meh meh meh". Sooo yeah... my question is.... are all parents like this? My dad wants me to join... but then bluddy doesnt.
