well, i just remembered when i did not went home that night. because i was out with my crush. i did not ask my parents' permission. i just went out with my crush and his friends at the beach resort and spent the whole night together. and went home at lunch time. i can still feel the pain of my mother's hand on my face. i know, it was my fault. but until now, i still do it. i sometimes sneak out and go out without asking their permission. i am just hard-headed. i know it is wrong, but...hey... i am turning 24 this year, and they still don't let me go out (my curfew is 12?!?!? imagine that?) actually, i want to have my space, but i know my pay is not enough for necessities. what do you think? what is the worst thing you did for your parents? do you think i should move out?

Hi donnakristel! I guess, your parents are just worried whenever you don't arrive at your home on the expected time. You know that there are a lot of bad things happening around to beautiful girls like you and as parents, they can't stop worrying for you dear. However, I do understand your situation and being almost 24 years old, you need to have freedom. But it is not that way with our culture, as long as you are under your parent's roof, they rule. I think it is best that you move out if you want to have some sort of independence and at the same time you can prove to your mother that you are a big girl now and can totally be trusted. Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith

Hi dear! Try to weigh things over and do not rush into any decision. Think it over a hundred times and do take care always. Your safety is a priority for everyone who loves and care for you. Good luck! lovelots..faith

Though it was not actually something wrong that i did to my parents,on the contrary i use to love them more than anything and anybody in this world,after growing up i did not allowed my mother to do any of housework,i helped my father in his business ,i studied as much as they wanted me to,i loved n cared them as mother,helped them in everything as guide,i had fun n entertained them as friend,and willingly married to their chosen indian scientist in FRance! after my marriage though i am very happy,but my parents miss me alot and keep crying to see me,my mother touch my belongings and cry n miss me,but now since i have my family,responsibilities its not possible to visit soo far for more than once in a year... so the bad thing i feel i did is being too lovely and obeying daughter,knowing that will have to leave them alone,i would had been little practical and arrogant like you..so they have not missed me sooo much,i cud than be happy and content too...

Well, the worst thing I ever did to my parents was marry my husband. I ran away with him in October of 2007. We were gone for 2 weeks. Drunk high and scared I was made to move in with my aunt. My and my boyfriend( now my husband)kept talking secretly. In december, he asked my father permission to marry me. On New Years Eve, two minutes after the ball dropped. He proposed to me. On February 5th, I found out I was pregnant. On February 29th, we were married. On March 5th, My husband went UA from the military. He convinced me to spend the weekend with him. It turned into 3 months. Me and father ended hating each other. On my 17th birthday,I made my condolences with my father. To this day my father hates my husband. Likewise for my husband. My father fully forgave me. And we are as close as we were so many years ago. As for you being 24, there is no way in the world you should have a curfew.

Ohhh, your 24 but your parents want is to have you a good life in the future. I still remember the pain i caused to my parents when i was 19 years old. That was in my college days. It was when i get pregnant. I never imagined that all that pain and mistakes, they never hurt me physically. But the tears i see in my father and mothers eyes is enough to make my heart bleed asking me "my daughter where did we get wrong with you? why did you ruin your future"?? And that is the worst thing is did with my parents.

it hurts to know that we made our parents be disappointed to us. but i guess, bringing up and raising after a fall is our greatest gift to them too. tanks for sharing.

Hi there Donna! I think that the worst thing that I have done to my parents is to not finish my studies and ran away with my boyfriend who is now my husband. I feel really guilty about hurting and disappointing them that much that now I am back in college and trying to finish my studies for them and my own family too.
