Okay, so I know its not good to get mad at your parents. The bible says to respect your mother and father. But sometimes I get so mad at them. My dad is extremely over protective and doesn't let me hang out with friends or even go to the park. I feel like my house is a cell. A place to eat and sleep. Most of the time I'm in my room on my laptop trying to talk to my friends because I can never meet them out of school. So I asked my mom and dad if I could go to an event called Fire Hall that my local fire station was hosting. I had asked my parents a month in advance and they said they would think about it. Tonight I talked to them and my dad gave me a long lecture about how I was too young and that he wasn't sure how safe it was. I told him that there would be police officers there and fire fighters. At the end of the lecture his answer was no. I then said sometimes I wish you would stop treating me like the 5 year old you think I am, I'm almost 13! So I went to my room and started crying. I sometimes think of running away because my parents treat me like a little girl. They don't want to accept that I'm almost a teenager, not a little girl. Can someone help me?

Well um... being that you're only twelve, I can understand why they wouldn't want you to do certain things. The world is not how we as teenagers see it. Everyday is something different in the news, the least expected. I felt the same way when I was your age about not getting to go places, but as you get older your gonna realize that they're not trying to make you live under a rock but they want the best safety for you. Maybe to go to the park you could let them meet your friends and your friends' parents so they can see if they are trustworthy. Usually if they know the household there's a greater chance of you getting to go places. Or maybe you can ask them why they won't let you go to see what you can do to get to go. Hope that helps.

wow...hmm that is a hard situation! right now, this whole thing seems like a big deal but later in life you might think you blew this out of proportion...i am 12 and my mom doesn't let me go places by myself but i know why. i'm too young and immature i don't know how to look out for myself and there are lots of creeps all over the place! (like demented people who do sick things to children...yuck :sick: ) anyway, just pray. realize that God gave you parents because they will lead you in life. trust me, their choice is best! and don't forget to honor your mother and father, so that you can live a long, happy life! :) ;)

I know what you mean. I have felt the same way before too,and I know we are not the only ones!
We,(pre-teens and teens) are at an age where everything we see,and do, and the people we hang out with and the things we hear will effect and shape us for the rest of our lives.
I doubt your parents are trying to keep you from having fun. They just want you to be safe. I'm sure you have heard that before, but its true! I would rather be safe than be in danger but having fun.
Ask God to help you and try to compromise with your parents. Like see what they will let you do,and then go from there. That's what I did.

Hey! I understand COMPLETELY, girl. I'm fifteen and a half. Our Pathfinder leader is SO controlling, like, she treats us like we're all two-year-olds and expects us to act like thirty-two-year-olds! :P
Anyway. What I see is that your parents are afraid of losing you. They love you so much that they are a little overprotective. Just hang on and pray for guidance. If you, with God's help, prove to them that you are much more mature than they think, chances are they'll start letting you do LOT'S more things! And don't worry, birthdays will come, and with them will come privileges. :)

Yeah I'm, 13 and I'm not allowed to go places by myself. I understand. I either hitch a ride with friends or my parents take me. I do agree with your parents. I know parents can be over protective but they love you so much and are trying to keep you safe. Hope this helps! :)
Blessed Assurance! Jesus is mine!

each parent is different. And like others have said, this world is just getting worse. It's not really safe, especially in certain cities, for 12 years old to be out alone.

Different parents have different ideas about safety. Some parents let their kids do whatever, and those are the kids that end up kidnapped, raped, or killed. Even if you don't believe it when your parents say their restrictive because they love you, they really mean it. Did you hear about those girl in Cleveland that were kidnapped for 10 years? That's almost 2/3 of my life! Imagine, if it happened to you, you would have disappeared at the age of 2.
Your family really cares. Personally (no matter how much it annoys me) I think that the more restrictive your family is, the more they care. Sometimes it does annoy me when my parents are annoying and restrictive, but when I look back only a teensy percentage was unnecessary.
Honestly, I don't really go places by myself. Sometimes my mom shops in the Womens section and me in the Juniors, but only with my cellphone. Even though I've taken 6 weeks of self-defense lessons, I still really don't feel very comfortable around strangers.
My point is, hang in there. When you look back, maybe you'll see that it WAS for the greater good. (it's the kind of thing where the place explodes or something and the only reason you survived is because your dad said NO)

Ouch.....

But It's okay, I know how it feels. My parents are very careful with what I watch--what I read--where I go...
I'm not allowed to go to sleepovers except for camping trips, and other spiritual or mind-healthful events...

It stinks...

If you really feel bad about it talk to your parents.

And I though I was WAY overprotected. You know, there is always someone worse off than you. I used to complain way more before realizing that. There will always be someone better off than you and someone worse off that you.

I don't know what to do other that just wait... I do know what it's like though. My parents are the same way I'm almost 15 and they treat me like I'm 4 and 5... :/ so I can empathize with you I don't know what to do though.

ok @preciousabby that isn't really kind. She might be younger than some of us but she isn't a little girl. And I don't think its really something thats going to help anything by saying that she is.
