What is the best way to confront your parent about giving you space?
My parents are outrageously smothering. I can do things on my own but they won't give me the chance to do anything and by smothering me, they refuse to let me grow and change.
First, write down all the reasons you feel that you should have more space. List arguments as to why these reasons are valid. An example would be:
1. I'm responsible. I do my chores regularly without you having to remind me, phone whenever I'm going to late, etc.
Then ask your parents for a discussion on the issue. State your case in a calm manner. Remember you are trying to convince them that you are mature enough to have a few less limits put on you.
Ask them why they are reluctant to give you more space. Listen politely and respectfully to EVERYTHING they have to say. Try to counter their objections with facts not promises to change.
If they still object, try to find out what changes you would have to make in order for them to agree. Make written note of them for later use. Ask your parents for a follow-up meeting to determine how you are doing with your changes in your quest for more freedom.
Thank you, that was a good answer lol. I'm bi polar with anger issues like a mad hatter, but I'll try to be subtle... and civil o.O
