    How would I deal with overprotective muslim parents

    I am 24 and wanted to go travelling by myself however they basically said No.

    I wanted to go Shisha and they said No.

    If I am late out at night they are texting me and calling me to find out where I am.

    How would I stop them from behaving this way?
    With parents you have to build a relationship of trust and that is key! so you should question yourself that have you ever done anything major that might have hurt them? If you can say NO to that and then you clear cut said to your parents about shisha then put yourself in their shoes and just think that would you let your child do that? I know we live in a western world but there are some things that sometimes you might have to sacrifice for your parents sake and that doesn't mean you become a sheep but maybe co-operate with them as they want what is best for you! xxxxx

    No muslim parents are a whole new level of overprotective. At 24 most other families are laid back. I don't know why people are so ignorant about the reality of this culture. They don't want you to do it full stop they don't want you to move out and get involved in western culture. Its nothing to do with manning up and all of this bs. Some are heavily controlling. Just do some research you will see for yourself.
    When their kid is twenty-four, it doesn't matter what parents want, you can just do it.

    Why am I ignorant? Unless they were brought up to be big babies, they can do as they please.

    The "explanations" can be waved away by saying "I am an adult".
