    Hey,

    Does anyone else feel like their family tell them what to do? I feel like my family don't really trust me to do things on my own and so they keep telling me what to do all the time and that makes things worse instead of better. Like, they always say things like 'im not gonna force you to come/do this' but when the opportunity arises and I say I don't feel like going etc they all have a go and make me go even if I don't want to. I am 19 and am more than capable of looking after myself but they still see the need to control. Although, they have become a lot better recently but it still annoys me. Anyone have any advice?

    Thank you

    I have parents like this. I find the best way is to ignore pretty much everything they say and make it clear you are your own person. Not easy but it does work and you can do it! Good luck!

    I am kinda doing that at the moment. It is pretty hard, but I guess it is worth it in the end.

    I think you should talk straightforward with your parent. Family always want to best things for you buy maybe sometime, they don't know how to show that. You also should to listen what they think,expect,etc in you instead of only saying. Hope you can do it and nice things come with you.
