Recently, my mom wants to go to this show in December and I told her that I don't wanna go. so she tells me 'Okay.' then I hear her say that she got tickets for all 4 of us. she lied to me. Now I don't even wanna be by her anymore. is that normal?

Ya that's normal. when in puberty you resent your parents but by 17 or 18 youll want to be with them again. its normal. outside of school might be a little funky though. it really depends, have you always not really been into doing things or is this just s a sudden occurance. not wanting to be with parents at 14 is completely normal, but not wanting to do anything at all might show signs of depressions. hope this helps.

I'd say yes, it is normal to stop wanting to do things with your parents at this age. It doesn't help that she lied to you though.

I'm not sure I'd consider "okay" a lie. I think you're overreacting. It's quite possible she bought a ticket for you either because she has no intention of leaving you out of this or because she thinks you might change your mind.

Either way, it's not unusual for adolescents to feel the need for their own space. You're going to have to learn to compromise though. We're talking DECEMBER here!

I'm a person who takes everything literally. One time, since I wasn't doing my homework in 8th grade science, my teacher told me that she was gonna get me with a ruler if I don't get my work done. So I told my mom that she told me that and when she told my teacher that, my teacher said it was a joke.
