    Im Pakistani and although my father definitely fits the stereotypical desk father mould, he wants us to do well education wise so although he would PREFER me to be near my house in the UK (He lives in Pakistan) Theres definitely no problem with me living away. As far as seen is concerned the way I see it is that, listen, you can tell a person alot of things, what not to do etc but ultimately it boils down to that person and that personal alone. If you have acquired certain morals and values, they are the things that will protect you and guide you, no matter how much someone tells you not to go in a certain group etc or indulge in certain activities.

    I definitely agree, I have a strong faith and I'm hoping my father knows that but tbh I just think he's over protective

    My parents wanted me to apply to universities in London (where I live) but I wanted to move out
    In the end we agreed on 3 in London and 2 out
    Thats what I did, 3 near Wolverhampton, where i live, and 2 in Manchester

    My parents know I applied to two out of London unis and they seem okay with it. But I think they want me to stay in London because they think it's easier, but if I told them I would go I don't think they'd have a problem with it.
    Yeah it would be easier, and thats good your options are open then

    Tbh I'm not sure what my parents' reasoning is; I think my dad is also kinda over-protective.
    Thats just typical dads then of any culture haha
