    I know. He's a messed up individual. You know he's actually younger than me by enough to ACTUALLY be my younger brother? It's like my moral duty to sort him out...



    Baby brothers play up sometimes... get confused. It's okay. It happens.
    Really!? Yeah he is messed up or 'corrupt' as he calls himself. :L

    He is hilarious. Calls himself corrupt, and rather than fix it, continues it

    Hey guys, since this is a very asian dominated thread, I feel some of you guys may be able to relate to what I got to say and suggest some solutions please?

    Basically, I intend to go university this coming year, I told my mum and she was fine with it and stuff after persuading her for a long time. I don't really aim to tell my dad cos he's gonna be against it as he has the typical asian dad mindset, that every girl comes out of uni corrupt. But the thing is my only intention is actually to study. Like many people say that for a cover up for the real reason. But I honestly mean it, I'm even willing to go to the nearest uni to home. And then yday I was telling my mum about a uni I got a reply from (the closest one obvs) and shockingly she just flipped at me, and me being the short-tempered person I am just started to argue, cos this is my life. I don't wanna be a typical housewife. I wanna be an independent female who has ambitions in her life. And now my mum is against it. I'm so pissed atm I dunno what to do. Feel like dropping Sixth Form, for which I've been trying my level best for.

    So any solutions on how to deal with this typical situation? Thank you in advance!
    Definitely take in what everyone else has said on this thread....I'm really sorry you're having to go through this nightmare, it must be uncomfortable and annoying for you to approach your parents about this especially when you know they'll just flip out...

    Have you specifically asked them why they don't want you to go to uni? I know you said your dad thinks you're gonna come back corrupt or something, try telling him as Moonietoot already said on here, that you have a right to education. And that you are willing to stay close to home so they won't have to worry about anything....

    If your parents are worried about respect and pride within the community, is there any reason for those worries? If you haven't actually done anything to break their trust, then why are they preventing you from carrying on with your education??

    Is there like an imam or a close family friend or anyone who can try and reason with your parents? What about teachers at your school, like the principle?

    Parents will definitely have their worries, but you need to get them to understand that you want to make your own living and get ahead in life and do something about it....you aren't doing anything wrong ok?! Understand that you have full right to go to uni and make something out of it, and you must fight for that...

    Definitely talk to your parents and plead with them if they repeatedly don't listen...try and get them to come with you to see what the uni is like where you want to go...be direct with telling them exactly what you want, and make sure they know your purpose and that you won't do anything stupid and that you are mature and responsible.

    PM me if you want
