Re:parents getting on your nerves



I know exactly how you feel. My mom won't let me go anywhere by myself because she watches too many murder shows. I'm 16 and I've never even been on a walk by myself because she is afraid that I will get raped or something. She is really paranoid.


Re:parents getting on your nerves



Hey, how long has ur step Dad lived with u for? It sounds like he really cares about u and as anoying as it is, he must love u and he must care for u. I hav had the same problam I am 16 and I wasn't allowed to go anywhere by myself until I was 14 years old. I think u should talk to ur step dad and tell him how u feel. I also think if that doesn't work, talk to someone else about it and maybe they can talk to him.

Sarah, I give u the same advice. Do u stil live with ur Aunt and Uncle? How do u get along with them? Hope to hear back from u guys. Tia PS Keep in touch! Let me kno what is going on!


Re:parents getting on your nerves



You are lucky Tia. I'm 16, and still can't go anywhere by myself. I've talked to my Aunt and Uncle, my mom and even a counselor, but still, nothing has changed. And I still do li8e with them. I get along good with them, I'm just not very open with them as much as I am with my mom. It is funny, they'll let me bungee jump, and ride crazy rides, but when I want to go somwhere by myself, I can just dream on.


Re:parents getting on your nerves



Sarah, that must be very hard for u and yes I am very lucky. There are cirtain things u have got to consider such as- Are u the only child in ur family? Does ur Mother trust u? What is ur mobility like and last and most inportant do u have someone trust wervy to go with? If u can answer them questions for me I wil try and help u! Urs Tia


Re:parents getting on your nerves



I have great mobility, I have someone I can trust, my mom trusts me, she is just worried about child mollesters because she watches too much tv.


Re:parents getting on your nerves



Sarah, yes people are very influenced by TV lol. My mom was the same. U just have got to try and convince her that u will be ok. U will get out one day! Just give it time!


Re:parents getting on your nerves



My mom said that I could go anywhere I want if I had a guide dog, but unfortunately, I'm not getting a guide dog because of my horrible depression. I don't know if I will ever have a guide dog.


Re:parents getting on your nerves



my parents weren't as tough in that aspect but in others they were, that's why I moved out at nineteen lol.


Re:parents getting on your nerves



How were they qugh? What were their rules?


Re:parents getting on your nerves



my mom was mean about the house phone. when i was a teen, cell phones were hard to come by because they were so pricey so my mom used to only give me selective phone calls, no calls after nine, she'd pick up the line and listen in as well.
Also, she treated me differently than my brothers, always making me clean and babysit her kids and never gave me money like my other brothers to go out and stuff.
as far as rules, there were none really. we could always have friends over pretty much whenever and she used to throw us, meaning my brother and i, huge parties where we could just have one big coed sleep over in the living room after the DJ would leave because she was too lazy to drive everyone home.
So yeah she wasn't all bad.


Re:parents getting on your nerves



Wow she actually listened in to your phone conversations? I don't have any trouble with talking on the phone, I can do that all I want. I'm very lucky, because my family don't care if I have a boyfriend or not. The actually like when I have a boyfriend.


Re:parents getting on your nerves



Now I can do as i please and the two guys that i have introduced my mom to as my boyfriends have gotten along with her just fine. she actually establishes good relationships with them.


Re:parents getting on your nerves
