    For instance they make decisions for you even though you are 18+
    Or TELL you do something rather than ASKING you to do something.


    My mother always talks about me to people like I am her pet or something and ORDERS me to do stuff rather than asking for favours. FFS I am 18 now! She makes my decisions for me! :mad:
    I cannot even defend myself because if I do, she starts whining (which is something you wanna avoid for your own benefit.) Going on about how other daughters are so perfect and I am imperfect, and then she starts telling my brothers (who are 10 years older than me) Who have a go at me. (I am slighly intimidated by them)
    Worst of all she is planning and saving up for my 'marriage' when I have made it perfectly clear I DO NOT WANT TO GET MARRIED!!!!! Yet she says "No YOU WILL" :rolleyes:

    Anyways, your stories?

    No, not at all thankfully. I think my parents have always been way too soft on me and just allowed me to do whatever the hell I want pretty much. Although I love that, sometimes I think why they don’t tell me off when I do stupid things.

    Good discipline is important too and makes you a better person later on in life I think. Anyway, I believe parents have a right to get you to do stuff for them. Yes it would be nice if they asked you rather then demanded it but really is it that big a deal? Maybe just have a word with them and let them know how you feel, they can't change if you don't tell them. They've looked after you for so long it's only fair they get something in return.
    Sometimes I wish my parents would tell me to do things for them but they never ask me. It's weird, I feel like I'm missing out

    If you live home, then you should only expect that they demand you to do stuff. However, parents shouldn't tell you what you should do in your life.

    But that is the thing I don't wanna live home, I want to move away. But my mother says "No you can't" and it is not easy for me to go like that because my mum will probably go on about bringing "shame to the family" etc etc.
    But thanks for the help anyways

    Your parents will treat you like an adult when you take up your issues with them rather than whining to the internet

    Tell them that you are an adult now, and it's time for you to decide your own life and move out whatever your mom says. It's your life, not theirs.

    Doesn't mean you shouldn't keep contact and visit them though. They will get over it.

    I'm moving from Norway to New Zeland. Can't say that my parents approve my decison, but they have accepted it, and I have promised to see them in the summer and winter break.
