okay. mine are wayy too protective though. and i dont know how to deal with them. they dont let me go next door to my best friends house that has lived next door to me for 9 yrs now. Just yesterday i was 3 houses down outside sitting on the grass with my friends and my mom came to get me in like 10 minutes and she yelled at me for it! im 14. not 5!! i get good grades she still doesnt allow me to get a cell phone. I try to avoid my parents and they find some kind of way to talk to me. i say i would pay for the cell with all my money and she still doesnt let me. She wont let me sleep over anyones house without her. Not even my grandmas!! today my friend is having a party at the movies for his birthday and she wont let me go because he is a boy. She is always in my business. She doesnt trust me. She makes me want to disobey her. Shes like your muslim you cant do none of that. She yells at me when i have 1 C an  the rest A's.  She never acknowledges any of my accomplishments. She wont let me go swimming at my friends house or my sisters house. She doesnt take me anywhere! and when my friends' parents offfer to take me places she still says no. She makes a big deal out of everything!! My mom never had a normal teenage life! Her dad died and she had alot of responsibility.   When i dont compare myself they compare me! They say why cant you be more like Sydney, i bet u she helps clean the house. And im like: you dont even know sydney! she has a BF. Sneaks out of her house, she isnt a virgin, and she drinks! and u want me to be more like her!?! like OMG. she tells me my sisters didnt have nothing i have. And im like because when they were my age this stuff was juss bein invented. She doesntr understand. she doesntisten and shes just sooo hard headed. She wont even let me walk out the house with short sleeves on. I dont even own a pair of freaking skinnies because she says theyre too tight. She doesnt even buy me bras!! i wear my sisters old ones and im alreadly in tha D-cup!. She wont allow me to work even though she complains she doesnt have enough money. she wont ket me babysit my neice for money either. She yells at me when boys call and most of my friends are boys. She used to know me so well. What happened??!

good advice! but i've tried this approach many times, and they still cling desperately to their outdated thinking... T.T
oh well, maybe it will just take a bit longer. =d

I always feel like I've got it different because my parents weren't raised in my country, so I feel like there are constant culutural barriers that stop us from understanding each other better. It's tough.
