my parents at times are overprotective too...ive gotten used to it tho..i just learned to not mention everything that might get them mad (i wait a day or ao if i need to tell them)..it gets frusterating at times but just go with the flow and im sure you'll live thru it :)
Be very glad u have overprotective parents. In this crazy world we live in all parents should be that way. They are just concerned and they love u. Be thankful bc there are kids out there that have parents that don't care.
Prove to them that you can be responsible (doing chores, volunteering, following their rules) and then sit them down to have a calm, mature conversation about why you should be able to have more freedom.
Same thing with me! I always ask them why and the same answer is always: we are looking out for you and we want you to be safe. But I learned it was at some points true! So do the things you want but when u can't just except it that's what I'm trying to do(:
Parents get overprotective usually because they remember being a kid. But one thing they do is forget what it feels like to be a kid. Try to listen to them. They are looking out for your best interest and I understand kids here that alot but it is true. Maybe if you feel you are being treated unfairly or you feel you deserve more responsibility. Sit down and talk to them. It is all about approach. Maybe try to work out a easy medium for the both of you to agree with. Try to show them you are mature by not freaking out if they make you feel like they are being unfair. Be open it's alot easier.
