How do I cope with overprotective parents? I NEED HELP=[
Growing up is very difficult—for both you and your parents. They remember a little bundle of joy that they held and nurtured as a baby and now they see a budding adult. These days, children face things and know about things that their parents would never have imagined at the same age. The teenagers of today look older, act older and want to be older than their counterparts did just 20 years ago. It is the desire of all parents for their children grow up in the way that they should go (loving, caring, respectful, and being of good solid character). It is necessary that you truly understand that your parents have your best interests at heart. They will withhold privileges, set limits, and raise you to the best of their ability (neither they nor you are perfect), but be Thankful - They Care - many, many, many don't. Ask them for guidance and seek to understand what truly motivates their decisions. One of the best ways to prove your maturity and prove that you are ready for more trust is to be respectful of your parent’s wishes and accept their guidance. Learn how to communicate love, honor, and respect to each other...I wish you the best !!
Maybe you need to show them that you can be responsible for your own actions. Lots of teenagers brag about how much they hate it when their mums are too overprotected, just remember...they only care for you. It will probably help if YOU tell THEM were you are going, who with, and when you will be back. That way they will know that you are responsible!!! Also, take your phone with you at all times. I do hope that this helped you =) if you want any more answers like this feel free to email me because I'm a teenager too and I understand these things =D email@example.com xXx
I can relate to u! I was like that for the longest with my parents but it all changed when I I hit 18 and I wouldnt think it would ever happen especially beecause im hispanic they didnt care that I was legal! it sucked sooo bad! but I got my liscence and I had to drive myself around everywhere so I got my freedom... let them realize that your not a bad daughter tyr takling to them just dont ask for wild crazy stuff like can I leave the house for 2 dyas or go to a club you know?? little by little.
Right now it all seems like hell, but when you get older you will look back and realize that it wasn't so bad. I was so overprotected as a child by both my parents and now I am 26 married with kids, and I look back and smile and thank them for the way they raised me, loved me, and protected me. It was hell as a child, but like I said, its all good once your an adult.
overprotective parents can be the worse to deal with. but the thing to remember is that they are protective because they love you. maybe you should try showing them that you can be a little more independent. taking it a few steps at a time, try to get more freedom. also, show them that you deserve that freedom. hope that helped.. good luck !
I can seriously relate to you. my parents tell me to grow up, and when I do they put me back down to where I was. it sucks, not being able to go out with your friends when you want to, but its okay. cause parents will be parents. they will one day have to realize your not there BABY anymore.
You need to prove to them they can trust you one small step at a time, then reassure them of the values they have instilled in you and what great parents they are, they will start to trust you more with each step
