They were once my age too?
WELL... my mom PROUDLY told me that at age 17, she looked like she was 10.
WHAT A RETARD.
AS IF LOOKING LIKE A 10 YEAR OLD WAS A *GOOD* THING AT AGE 17.
She understands NOTHING that I tell her, and I don't think she ever felt like this when she was in her teens.
I'm currently 16. I go to a highschool with my 14 year old brother. My mom tells him to WATCH ME AT LUNCH to make sure that I WASNT TALKING TO ANY GIRLS. LOL.
She has a hard time letting me watch PG-13 movies, because there might be "adult material" (ie, KISSING).
She thinks that 16 yr olds (or 13 year olds for that matter) have no ide what sex is.
She thinks sex ed in grade 7 is about growing mustaches or something.
She always tells me to compare myself to the best. Thats fine and all, but when it comes to buying clothes, all of a sudden, buying GOOD CLOTHES is a BAD THING. CHEAP CLOTHES ARE WHAT I SHOULD BE GETTING.
I mean, its SATANIC to want to do what the majority of (ie, NORMAL) kids do. Cell phones? NOPE. GO DOWN TO THE OFFICE AND USE THE PHONE THERE.
What's that? You want to TEXT MSG? Oh, but calling is SO MUCH BETTER. Plus, text messaging is SLOWER (She's never heard of phones with keypads. Let alone Blackberries, which everyone has.)
Oh, right I almost forgot. I *might* be able to get an E-MAIL ACCOUNT (YOU READ THAT RIGHT: E-MAIL) when I'm *25*, after I've learned that those ads for larger penis's are FAKE. Maybe Facebook when I'm 30.
After all, Facebook is a great website, but only adults use it. Not like people in grade 8 have it.
What's the best part? She tells me that BACK IN TAIWAN (which is where she is from), KIDS DONT BUY GOOD CLOTHES (She said "Are not spoiled"), OR HAVE CELL PHONES IN HIGH SCHOOL. We went to there during the summer. Funny thing. The kids had decent clothes, cell phones, etc. Why is that NOT surprising?
She is far too controlling, far too protective, and far too prejudiced and closed minded. Just because she lived in a dump when she was little doesn't mean that's the way things are today.
Sometimes I wish I had a mom who would let me be a regular teenager and NOT show up to any of my events at school or give half a dump why it took me 3 hrs to get home from school than to have what I currently have.
I mean, parents who don't really care aren't a good thing, but I truly believe it is much better than having over protective parents.
