How old are you? Depending on your age, and how safe the area is where you live, her actions might not be all that out of line. In most cases parents want what's best for their kids, and being somewhat over protective is one of the ways that they do that.

In order for her to trust you, you have to earn it - show her that you are responsible. Do your chores (and extra) before being asked. Make sure you are doing well in school, and if there are particular friend's houses that you want to go, see it's ok to invite them over to your house first so that your mom can meet them and their parents. So she'll feel comfortable if you go there.

Show your mom that you can really take care of yourself by being responsible right there at home. She needs to develop confidence in you, so that she doesn't have to worry when you go out.

Do things for her. Ask her what you can do to help. Just help her out even if your not asked to do it. Example. Vacuum the house while shes gone or there for extra brownie points.
