    ah my dad was like that too, but i got a job anyway lol
    maybe he's afraid of the fact that you dont need to be dependent on him anymore? or maybe he thinks it'll distract you from school work, that was my dad's excuse

    This, exactly.
    My dad never wanted me to work, he liked providing everything for me as if I was his little princess .. I guess we never grow up in our parents' eyes, but they need to let go and accept it. I have a job now, my mom's not complaining :]
