This guide doesn't help at all.

Punching your parents is far more effective with quicker results too. Don't listen to this tripe.

i find this advice completely condescending and makes great assumptions, ytour parents might be experiencing severe mental problems and may not exhibit the qualities of what you consider to be a regular human being. i think someone reading this who has those kinds of parents would be fucking disgusted by your suggestions. of course your arrogant ass is going to completely reject everything i say, but i just wanted you to at least have the contrary opinion in mind.

My mum doesn't understand me at all. I want to change my name and dye my hair black, but legally you aren't allowed to change your own name until your 18, unless your parents do it for you. She won't let me do either. She says that if I dye my hair black it will make me look too "hard" and that she wants me to keep the name she gave me.

She keeps telling me that she used to be my age too, but her life was different. Her mum had died when she was 13, she had a step-mum who hated her and a dad who didn't care. But she doesnt seem to get that I'm not her, I don't have to live her life, and that the things that happened to her don't have to happen to me. Even when I tell her that I get higher graduation marks than all of my friends and yet they can do stuff that I can't she still wont listen.

Every time I try to talk to her about it she always starts yelling and saying that if I change my name or dye my hair she'll disown me and send me to live with my dad. She may as well leave me on the street.

I really don't know what to do but give up, and I don't want to do that.

you should try to find a happy medium! talk to your parents, but don't yell. i just took this awesome quiz and it let me know that i let my parents control my desisions a little TOO much. you should see where you stand! who controls your decisions, you or your parents and friends?

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.
