maybe because your parents know how guys think and how they behave at that age. they're just trying to protect you and there's nothing wrong with that. Maybe they want you to focus on school or something. But then again, you are an adult living in their house and going by their rules. you can move out get a job but its not easy, especially if you are school.
Depends on the girl. 15 or 16? By 18 you're an adult. You're parents may not like the fact that you are looking at boys, but it is certainly time for you to make your own decisions in that regard unless you have some kind of developmental disability.
No offense but you do not sound 18 at all. And secondly, If you are 18 that means you're an adult. If you live under your parents roof that means you have to follow by their rules. Since you're 18 I'm pretty sure you can work in retail and few other jobs. Get one move out date There you go problem solved
Think by this time you should be allowed to date. You are an adult. Understand, my house, my rules. But this is going to far. I would sit down and really talk to them. Let them set guidelines like curfews, meeting the guy.
More so than telling them an age, I would sit them down and give them a talk about respecting themselves. Try not to be too boring either or else they won't relate to you. When girls start dating they find it to be an ego boost and they finally feel like they're wanted. So they're less likely to break up with a guy if he's treating her badly (which can lead to emotional problems later on) because she maybe doesn't have as much self worth and couldn't get anyone else etc. Teach her to respect herself and to ditch anyone who treats her badly. But give her space to make her own decisions, if she feels like you're being too controlling then they're going to lash out or just not listen to you. Make them feel like they're not a baby (because nobody wants to hear they don't know this or don't understand this or what they feel isn't validated-never discredit their feelings, unless you want them to ignore you). Let them know that you can't control them (but there are rules that they will have to obey) but give them respect and they will listen to your advice. Just make them feel like they deserve someone special and to know that they should be with someone who respects them
When they're ready, they will tell you. Be open to it so they feel like they can tell you things and that way she can trust that she can tell you what's on your mind. Around the age 12 they start dating, they hug and hold hands but that's it. Remember, at a young age they won't be going off into their rooms to do..ya know... they'll be watching a movie or whatever. When she becomes 14 or 13, then the kissing starts. Remember to be open so she feels like she can approach you! This will be important later when she starts thinking about sex! It's not as bad as you think being a parent, you had sex and you kissed a boy, and it's something that parents freak out about, but it's all about growing up and learning!
