I'll start this off with a little info about me. I just went into Year 10 and I go to an English grammar school. My parents come from a very strict background and want me to become very successful.
Here's the problem:
They treat me like a kid. Whenever I do homework, my mum always makes me check it with her before handing it in. She also takes my phone away for hours at a time and secretly spies on my WhatsApp and text messages. Whenever I go to a friends house, she always tells me that she has to accompany me otherwise I'm not going. I get teased because I've still got a phone which is over 6 years old and my parents refuse to let me upgrade it, even with my own money. They also take away most of the money that I have stored over the past few years and force me to go to tuition, religious tutoring, and do sports I have no interest in. They want me to be the best in my year, and get very angry at me whenever I get a mediocre mark (~80%). They also make me feel bad emotionally, by saying that I'm bottom of the class and that I'll grow up to be a street cleaner.
I guess what I really am asking for is help about how to stop my parents doing this to me.
TL;DR my parents treat me like a baby and limit my freedom.
