yeah poor parents that keep feeding to their kids habits and so on. If they are 18 make them have responsibility! When I lived at home at the age of 16 I had a job paid for my own stuff, helped with bills where ever I lived. Sounds like to be parents don't want to let go, so they keep paying for things and not making their children take on any kind of responsibility. If I wanted a car, I paid for every thing, if I wanted a cell phone, I paid for it. Food I helped with, stuff i used in their home I helped pay for when I was 18 like power, electricity, phone if I used their phone, and so on. Its called showing a child a way of tough living but a heads up, so they will know what they will get into on their own and how to manage their money. Either the parents dont want to let go, or they are controling, or just stupid.

Are you seriously advising someone to fake a crippling depression in order to be permitted to avoid responsibility and keep living with her parents but still be able to enjoy doing things they don't approve of? Unbelievable. I would think it would take far less energy to simply get a job and support yourself.

im 18 i live with my boyfriend and his family but visit my parents every second weekend with my boyfriend who drives me all the way down to my parents home which is an hour and a half drive. when we arrive automatically the "fun" starts. when my bf isnt around they tell me how it looks like ive been gaining weight even though im 65 kilos and ive actually lost weight.
im insecure so this usually makes me depressed so i eat more when they say this.
they tell me my bf doesnt talk much and get upset that he never says anything to them even though he does. he is really shy and also he is a little bit autistic.
they say that hes the reason im gaining weight and they blame him for pretty much everything when he hasn't done anything wrong like last week i went home and mum and dad were tslking about buying me a car i was happy about it but as soon as my bf said that it was the kind of car that could have promblems if you dont take care of it (which is true look up daewoo lanos problems) they got so mad at me saying that they hate me living here although they asked me to get a job and no positions were avaliable where mum and dad live so i got a job where i live now and ive done everything they wanted me to do like get good grades i finished school and got a qce and got a job and im doing tafe which im paying for btw. i dont understand what the problem is help me please!

I am 18 and my parents keep telling me what to do. My step dad grounded me yesterday fro not putting soda in his mini fridge and i dont drink soda and i have my own fridge with water. I want to move out so bad but i dont have a car or a job, you have to have a job to make money to get a car and you have to have a car to have a job. What do I do?

I would love to join the Navy but I really don't want to leave my boyfriend because I love him so much and he doesn't want me to leave him so I'm staying here. I just want to get out of my parents house because they think they can control me. I have a twin that is wild and she gets to do whatever she wants so I get punished for things she does

Hey man, the best way is to go against the flow. If I had followed my parents every direction, i would be a perfect church boy with no backbone. I did some stupid stuff, partying, drinking, dating, ended up getting arrested. I am still dating a girl that they hate and openly slander, but weve been dating almost a year, and she is the one. Stand up bro. It will give you backbone, character, a direction in life, DO NOT GIVE IN TO WHAT YOU DONT WANT. you will never regret the things you did as much as the things you were too scared to do.

Im 18 and gave a 4 month old baby and my parents tell me when and where i can or cant go. They keep me basically locked in the house all day everyday. They wont even allow me to go see my boyfriend (babys father) now because of an inncident that happened a month ago. Everytime i tell them im 18 they cant control me they give me the " as long as you live under my roof , you live by my rules"speech or the "as long as me and your father are supporting you. You will listen to us" speech. And im just really sick and tired of everytime i wanna get a job to support me and my child my parents tell me no i need to focus on finishing school.

To all of you crying and whining and still living at home, Get off of your asses get a job and get your own place. Problem solved. If mommy and daddy are supporting you, you are subject to their rules. Need anything else answered ? Stop your crying.

If you're still living in their home, then they will continue to tell you what you can and cannot do. Move out, get a job and take care of yourself, maybe then they will see you as an adult

1st of all, maybe you think people/parents can talk anyway they see fit each day. Turns out many parents are abusers. Actually they are not trying to be tough to make you responsible- they are tricking you. This goes for people at school as well. Words are abuse also.
There are 3 types of abusive people/parents. Some hit the bottle. Some hit you. And some run their mouths and put you down. THEY are sick and feel great on being mean, and thats the only reason they do it. They are wrong about everything. The typical abuser is close-minded, self-righteous and was also abused themself. Use defense and read many sites on verbal abuse etc. They tear you down to build themselves up. Abuse causes all known so called Mental Problems. BP OCD etc.
Psychiatrists commit fraud in that there is no medical science in what they do. They do not draw blood to test for imbalances. For chemical imbalances NO test exists.
Jesus name and forgiving others who are wrong is important along with avoiding them.
Contact- Child Protective Services online- not a cure but keeps you safe. Your parents need to forgive the past.
Learn the truth, forgive, and Get Away from them. Read many many sites under "emotional abuse" and "dealing with bullies".
Talk to me. I have some questions for you
Source(s):
Experience with people feeling better on a repeated basis.
"The typical abuser is close-minded, self-righteous and was also abused themselves." Sounds like a christian minister.
