    my mum is so paranoid and it pisses me off because i am nearly 19 and about to go to uni. Im not allowed to date, not allowed to go out when its dark….yet I can vote, I drive and work……she still treats me like a child and only wants me to be an "adult" when it suits her.

    I've been fed up for years because I feel like all my peers around me are enjoying this stage of their life and mine is just dull because of my overprotective super paranoid mum.

    Some advice would be great.

    The best thing to do would be to talk about it with her?

    I mean I'm 18 and I am barely allowed out forget the dark... check ur privilege m8

    But yeah talk to her about it or go to a uni far enough for you to have to move out and then you can do as you please.

    She only cares about you, afterall. Maybe she grew up in a more 'dangerous' or strict environment so she's tryna look out for you, explain to her that it's not the same anymore and that you'll text her regularly throughout the evening/ night so she doesn't have to worry.

    When it comes to dating, maybe tell her about the guy and let her meet him first? idk cant help with that xP
