  • Lie. And no, you aren't wrong. You could make up some way outlandish amount, and laugh. Ask her why she wants to know. Make it a joke, and hope she stops asking! It's kinda rude...

  • You don't have to tell anyone what you make, its no ones business but yours.

  • Parents shouldnt ask questions like that. Your not wrong at all. Tell her it isnt her business and if she asks why tell her that your an adult and its your concern on how much you make not hers.
