For Teens With Protective Parents
Family & Kids
If you have protective parents, like me, & you want to go do stuff with your friends & be free but you don't know how to deal with your parents, here's a few tricks I use to get my parents to trust me enough to let me have fun...
1. If you want to do something, make it a habit to plan something a week or a few days before the event. Also, make sure you give them all the info that you know. (Or at least the info that they'll approve)
2. If your parents discipline you to be perfect, reassure them that you are as perfect as you were before with a little more knowledge. To do this, keep them involved in everything that you do, from school to hanging with friends, spare some details if you have to. Make this a habit.
3. If your parents have lost trust in you Bc of something you've done, then stop doing what you did for a while until that trust builds back up. If you want to continue your actions w/out parental trust, then your life is going to be harder than ever to have fun & be a teen.
4. Keep your parents involved. Talk with them about your day, who you talked to, who you like, what you want to do with your life, etc. Trust me, it helps.
5. If you have secrets that you don't want your parents to know Bc they'll freak out if they found out about it, depending on what it is, tell them. It's not like they can ignore you for the rest of your life just Bc of it. If they try to force what they believe on you, stop them & let them know that you are who you are & nothing they can do will change that. They'll get over it eventually. It won't be the end of the world if they flip out. Let them know exactly how you feel & how you came to feeling that way. Make them listen.
6. If your parents scare you, make sure they know that. If they care, they will try to change so they don't scare you. If they don't care, let them know you love them & will always be there for/with them no matter what happens.
7. Let them help you. Chances are, if you let them into your life, they'll back down a little & give you more space Bc they know more about who you are.
8. Family really is everything. Whether you like them or not that doesn't change the fact that they're family. Protective parents want you to know that you're a part of their life & that they love you & want to make sure you know that & that you're safe. Do the same to them.
Overall, basically, just be open with your protective parents & let them know & show them that you know they love you & you love them.
Having a good relationship with your parents will help you emotionally & physically in the long run. It also helps you have better relationships with your friends & people you like/love. Having a healthy relationship with your parents plays a part in Being able to make good decisions & staying out of extreme trouble.
As a child, me & my sister were abused & multiple other things. We were adopted by our grandparents who are very protective. My sister, unfortunately, wasn't as lucky to have come to them without traumatizing memories like I have. She acted out very badly & did multitudes of bad things. My parents gave her most of the attention & I felt alone Bc of it. But she moved out & now, Bc I talk with them & let them know how I feel, I don't feel as alone with them as I did when I was a child. Also, I'm able to do more without them constantly questioning me about everything.Make these tips a habit.
