My Parents Are Over Controlling! – Daily Dilemma
Here is Today’s Daily Dilemma:
I am a Sophomore in college and my question is this, how do you deal with over controlling parents? I mean, why won’t they let me make my own decisions, even if they’re the wrong ones?
They are constantly asking me about my GPA, when I’m home I still have a curfew, I’m not allowed to enter into any contract without my Father’s approval, not even a cell phone. I’m not even allowed to get a part time job because this would interfere with my studies?
I’ve never had a ticket (car wise not even a PARKING ticket), never been in a wreck, or out drunk one night where I had to call them, nothing.
I’ve been a GREAT kid growing up. So, how can I earn his trust in making my decisions? I’m a 3.5+ student in a science based degree (one my Father insisted upon obviously..) I’m just so overwhelmed with the pressure he puts on me.
The “Daily Dilemma” on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone’s problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don’t have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can’t agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we’d love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
