My parents are really strict and hypocritical, what should i do?
I'm Australian, both my parents are Australian too. My parents say "do as i say, not as i do".
All my life they said to me when your 18 do what you want. Know that im 19 they say "when you move out of home then you can get piercings and do what you want."
They made me get my ears pierced once when i was 4. i barely young enough to understand. Now that im legally an adult and understand i want my bellybutton and my ears pierced. I've wanted a second piercing on my ears for about 6-7 years and even though im an adult legally ^^ they wont let me get it done. I'm a obedient so i always ask for permission before doing something.
But my parents are so hypocritical and i find it hard to respect them when they are like this. They treat me like an adult when it suits them, like i pay my way, pay board, pay bills because they say im legally an adult and have to pay for all my own stuff. But then they say im too childish to make a lifelong decision like piercing my ears and belly button. i know they are trying to make sure i don't make any mistakes, but its so frustrating when they don't let me do what i want. I want to respect them but they make it very difficult. (im a christian)
