Am I a bad daughter?
July 15, 2012 6:14am CST
I'm an elder daughter having one older brother and one younger sister. I have already my permanent job and I'm still single.I belong to a middle class family,We are not rich but not so poor. One of my hobbies is travelling anywhere. I use to travel places which has a lot of famous beaches. I also love going out at night. drinking with my friends, disco in the club and doing singing in the Karaoke.However lately we had a very big argument with my parents.They are asking me to quit going around. I said I can't because that's the only way I can relieve my stress.But they insist me to do so,And guess what's worst?They don't even talk to me and it seems they never bothered to trust me anymore.I feel so hurt.Then I tried to ask myself?Am I a bad daughter?I tried to weigh things out but I can proudly say that I'm not because I never dare to forget my responsibility in the family. I never forget to share a portion on the expenses in the house.I never did wrong.I tried to follow all their rules but why can't they accept that going somewhere is already part if my life?

No your not as you've said your contributing on your household expenses. but i think your parents just want you to save for the future while your still single, so if in-case your gonna get married you don't need to be dependent to your husband.. that's what i think...lol

You're not a bad daughter. Don't think of it that way. Maybe, they want you to quit traveling because they want you to start saving for your future. Traveling costs us money and money is quite hard to earn. Just try to approach them and talk to them. They are your parents. I hope they understand you and you will also understand them.

Hi, You are not a bad daughter, you are a nice daughter. I think your parents are very caring and protective about you. They love you and they want nothing bad would happen to you. They would think that night is not a right to go out for girls. So I think you should share your feelings together nad remove all misunderstandings from mind's of your parents.

No! Are they kidding? How could someone possibly work and not have distraction? You are a great daughter for being working already, there are many that don't. I know a 36 that has no shame, she live with her parents, made them pay for her boobies and butt surgery, went to nurse college and then gave up after graduating, is not working and buy dresses every weekend, I think she don't love or care about her parents. You work, you are helping, you are a good daughter.

hi Daisy you did not say how old you are? like most parents it could be that although you are a great daughter they are forgetting you are not a l ittle kid anymore and want to hang on you a bit. I would take care when going out with friends not to come home drunk and not to stay out til dawn as this worries parents. also if you are old enough gh and working why not move in to your own place. now I am assuming you are in the US so of course if in other countries young people do not go out on their own as young as we do here.but once 23 or 24 here most get their own apartments.
