How do I get my parents (mostly my dad) to loosen up their grip on me and stop being so strict?
I'm in highschool. I'm almost 15 years old (will be on the 29th)! My dad won't even let me think about guys! He won't let me dye my hair! He probably wouldn't even let me get contacts if I asked for them (which I also want, green ones). It's really annoying that he does all this! How can I get him to stop? He's not the type you can really talk to either. He's one of the type of parents who are like do what I say bc I say so, and I control you till you move out. If I try to talk to him he is always like, "you're being disrespectful" and if I keep trying he'll be like "if u ask again or whatever ur grounded." and it's so frustrating. I've never met anyone more stubborn to admit they're wrong in my life!!! The thing is it isn't even fair! My brother talks about girls ALL THE TIME, and he'll talk about them with him! He's a guy so he isn't gonna want all that other stuff. But he got in trouble for touching a girl's but, but he still gets to talk about them and have girlfriends! I haven't even done anything to get this treatment! I don't smoke, don't go around doing things, I get straight A's except for one D I have I'm trying to bring up. My brother has a C and an F and B's too and one A I think. He's 16 so he's not even much older than me! It's all really annoying! I really need something to make him back off!
