My parents took my two daughters on vacation with them to Tennessee and Kentucky, they were on their way to Missouri to St. Louis and was gonna take them to the zoo. This would be the fourth trip to the zoo and my youngest, I myself have never took to the zoo and I feel that my parents have ripped that first expression on her face from me......but whatever. Anyways so St louis is like four hours from where I live and they threw a FN fit when I asked if I could meet them there......I'm 23 I think I can read a map and print detailed instructions just fine!!! So yeah they turned around brought the girls back home and threw a baby fit that I ruined their vacation......A$$HOLE$...Whats the deal with me wanting to take my kids to different places? I have managed 7 years without getting a ticket ot wreck and they still wanna treat me like a baby...they rather me sit at home and do nothing...seriously they threw a fit when I moved out of their house in February, I live 14 miles away....seriously they were so angry. They tell me all the time not to do this or that, not to drive in the dark........ Do they realize that they can get in a wreck just as easily as I can? Does my father realize that he speeds all the time and I can't handle driving on the interstate cause I panic and I feel like I can't breathe when I go that fast..... I know that I am the only one that my kids have in their life that is good, I mean besides my family, but their father is a worthless piece of hunking $hit, drugs, alcohol, identity theft because HE SOLD his ss number, yeah he's mexican go figure...I know that sounds racist but live and tx and you'll understand, they are all the same, show me one that different and I'll take the comment back until then good luck, sorry. Anyways so yeah I understand that if I die that my kids will go to their father and he will pawn them off on whom ever, so I have to be cautous not to do 130 MPH....cause 55 is just soooo slow god its like doing 10.......I'm totally joking about the 130 cause yeah can't handle interstate so thats outta my driving ability, so I shouldn't die in a car wreck..... Does any other adults still gotta ask their parents permission to do things?!

I'm 22, married and have a 4 yr. old. When I first had my little girl my parents were still WAY too protective. They griped me out because we didn't get home until like 10 pm! They said that was too late for her to be out. They aren't as bad now, but if we get in late, they let me know to call them so they know in case something was to happen. (Car trouble, wreck...etc.) I guess they feel like your their little girl still and have to treat you that way. Maybe they are just worried about you and feel if they are "protective" enough you'll be more careful. Try talking to them and explaining that you are thankful they were such great parents, but it is time for them to let you try to be a great parent as well. Let them know that you know how to make decisions, you want what's best for your children, and you appreciate their help but they need to slack off a little. Oh and if you can prove your children's father to be as worthless as you say, you should be able to get full custody and not worry about him. Also, get a letter of guardianship (like a will), that states that if you die your children go to your parents. If you can get their dad to sign it also, good for you! If not, get custody and then sign it! :) Good Luck! Keep your head up! Talk it out- if they don't do well with conversation confrontation e-mail them, write them a letter or send them a card with your thoughts inside. That's what I did with my parents.

I do have full custody of my girls, but their father threatens to take them to mexico and that i will never see them again....I've got the order of protection too, but thats not building a cage around us making us untouchable......I'm sure they will eventually get used to me taking them places, but it would be nice if they wanted to take them somewhere if they would include me too.
