How do you get along with control freak parents who overreact constantly?

AKA my parents.

Your parents are doing their job right..you may have friends that are not up to their standards,,and that is the job of a parent.
You may be defiant and disrespectful towards them, which may lead them to think you have poor judgement, and are immature for what you ask. Maybe they see some mistakes you are making that they made, and are trying to keep you from living the same consequences.

Being a kid today is hard, but being a parent is even harder. They don't want to say no, and it hurts them to hold you back, that is called tough love.
If you ask them to sit down and discuss what they expect of you and what will they allow you to do, you might be able to come to terms with each other.
You sound immature to me, sorry, but if you start acting mature and work together, you might just get along better and find they will be happy to honor some of your requests.
They are your parents, so always respect them. A lot of kids feel like you, but when they stop and realize how hard a parent's job is, they seem to settle down and start to communicate Remember also, just because your friends do something, doesn't mean it's ok to do it..

Great response

No, sorry, but I dont think I am being immature, because I dont want to take marching band in high school, because of my busy schedule and because my parents are threatening that if I dont take it, they will send me to military school. I am a straight A's student and obey them on all other occasions!

I wanted to add that because we do not know you or ur family, we can't really judge, but the site only allowed me the space I answered you.
In that case, your family is being unreasonable..have you told them nicely you would like to take band but you can only do so much without getting sickl. Stress will cause anyone to become ill. Tell them you thought you were pleasing them by working hard to get A's and they need to consider your health.
Try to be calm tho dear, shouting matches prove nothing. I hear you tho. They seem demanding.Just keep talking and communicating. Take care..

If y'all aren't that close then just stuff that doesn't need to be said don't say it. And they probably won't hardly talk to you.

Be respective and realize that in a short few years you will be an adult. One day you will understand why they are this way.

I understand how you feel. Try to push your feelings away and realize they just care for you and want you to be safe. They aren't trying to get on your nerves their just doing their job. ;) try to develop a soft spot for them and try to see their point of view on things. Good luck! ;) <3

good answer lex.......unfortunatley,his/her family sound very demanding..read comment under my answer..There are parents like that....and that is too bad since it is going to the extreme of being a good parent..sounds like they are thinking of themselves more than the health of their child..To threaten is not a good way to raise children..I really do not know the issues..Just my opinion

Right on Toni
