I understand she wories about me somethimes i get but upset because i wana spend some time with my friends...Do you sometimes get this? What would you do if you were in my place?

Hello there! i am afraid my mother and father have never objected to me going out with my friends. infact, they would encourage me to do so. they trust me with all their heart, so would never think that i may fall into bad company or anything of that sort. so its really alright you know! its all a matter of how well you are placed in the eyes of your parents and how much they trust you. each and every parent is worried about their child

Youre very right. get along very good with my mother and father infact very good. I am a little "crazy"( in the good sense) and they worry about the surroundings and they realy care about me.

im 25 now but when i was still in my teens (13-16 years old), my parents would not allow me to go out with my friends except for school-related activities. during weekends, im with my family going to other places. i even watch movies in cinemas with them instead of my friends! of course, i feel angry about it but i now realized that my parents just wanted to spend time with me before i grow up and spend my life away from them..

As a parent of 6 teenagers i can tell you is hard to see your kids with friends that are not good for them, me i don't trust anyone when it come to my kids but they have to grow up and do their own thing i just have to hold my breath and hope they make the right choices.

Friend what i have found with my personal experience that what ever our parents says us is because of good only.They always think for our good only.Well my parents too say sometimes keeping in view of certain factors which they think is good.We are still young friend and our mine too and they are elder to us so they do know much better than us what is good for us.

It's all about your parents loving you and worrying about you. I know this sounds silly, but when you have kids, you will see why they are that way. In the meantime, at least you know you have parents that care a great deal for you. Try showing them how responsible you are and maybe they will ease up a little.

i'm only 23 but i remember wanting to spend time with my friends. are you responsible?? maybe if you proove to your mother you're responsible she'll let you hang with your friends more. sometimes, they set rules for a reason, like you can't stay out past a certian time on a school night. most of them are understandable.

When i was a kid and if i wanted to go out with my friends in the evenings, my parents on most occasions refused flatly without any reason. If i asked them, then they used to say that " no you are just too young to go out with friends", i had no understanding of logic at that time. I now get it that parents are worried about you till you are a kid, they feel concerned about you and do not believe in going out with friends, especially if its evening time or night. The time they start feeling that you have grown up, they will never stop you from going anywhere because they know that now will be able to take care of yourself.

my parents are very good with me but I don't understand why sometimes they don't have truust in me. They love me very much, i feel this, but sometimes I don't understand them. Why they don't let me to drive our family car alone witout my father or my mother?

I lucked out. My mother had a lot of trust in me, so almost anytime I wanted to go somewhere I was able to. I have always had an open relationship with her, so she knows almost everything I ever did when I was younger and was able to trust me enough to go out whenever. I never had a curfew either.

i guess this is a question more of concern to girls.. this is pretty common of parents no to give permission to their children to go out coz we tend to get late usually so parents get worried but if we get along with gud company and tell our aprents truly whr we r goin and wn we wud be back thn i guess thr is no problem its just tht we need to take our parents i confidence nd be true always

Parents always think whatever is right for their childrens, they never let you be unhappy but they stop you from going out if that they care for you, you are lucky that you have parents so caring, see to people who don't have parents and they want someone caring for them, never hurt your parents and always listen to them what they say, but you can request them and make them understand them in a loving way to let you go out with friend's and i am sure they wont stop you.

Well, I am a parent so you probably aren't going to like my opinion much. I wouldn't like you staying out late either. I would rather have my kids invite their friends over here than to send my kids elsewhere. You should talk to them about that. You mom has every right to be worried there is so much that can happen to a young girl out there. I wish I had had one of those protective mothers. I already had a baby by the time I was your age. Just hang in there. There is a time for everything and in a couple of years you will have your freedom. Concentrate on your studies for now and have good clean fun. I know it's hard, but it really is what is best for you. You will reap the benefits of it later. God bless.

I totally sympathize with you. When Mom is in a bad mood its not a good time to ask to go somewhere she usually objects to. Remember that and dont ask then. Your mother may feel that when you are with your friends you "forget" things -like what time you are supposed to be home, like saftey issues you dont follow, like friends encouraging you to do things she disapproves of and all the BAD things out there that you are really totally unaware of yet. She is doing her job. Her job(with you) is to get you to adulthood -ready to be a mature, contributing person not to let you do whatever you want to.
