I don't want my mom to just unlock my door. I lock the doors to the bathroom and my bedroom because I don't want people to just walk in. But my Mom always unlocks the door without even knocking first. I told her to please stop but she told me that I can have privacy when I'm 18. It makes me really uncomfortable that she does this. Is this rude or am I just overreacting?

i'm a 17yo girl and i live in a very strict religious household. This mind sound silly, but i'm not exactly allowed to wear my hair down. The last time i ever wore my hair down in front of my parents was in middle school, and my dad made a huge deal about it. They always tell me that i'm going to study not to party, and that my hair should be simple and TIED UP. Anyways, i have been wearing my hair down secretly for about a couple years now, i always wear it down and tie it right before i go back home. I like the feeling of having it down. It makes me feel feminine and powerful. But today as i was on my way back home, my hair was down as usual and some boy was catcalling me . Surprisingly my mom and sister were on the same street and they saw everything.My mom said she's disappointed, that i fooled her and she doesn't trust me anymore and that i'm hoeing around and sh*t... God it was so embarassing... What should i do about the situation?

My mom wants to go with my sis, her husband, & my neice (17) to Hawaii & take my oldest son (13) with her. They will stay with my cousin whose son is 16 & my mom s sister & bro-in-law will be there. I have 3 other children a boy 9, girl 7, & girl 4. I told her it would be unfair for me to let him go & the other s can t & I think they would be upset. There has been other vacays with the same set of people that only my oldest was invited to go so I didn t let him because I believe in showing my kids that they are treated equal & not cause any jealousy or division among them.She insists he is a big enough age difference from my younger children that makes it okay but I feel they are at the very age where it matters to them. I told her if she thinks it s okay than ask my other kids herself & see what they have to say. She has pics of my niece & my oldest on the refrigerator & in the guest room from when they where little & my 9 yr old asked me why are there only pics of my neice & my oldest on the refrigerator.I also feel like I don t want to keep hindering him because he has younger siblings. My mom also already told him which I don t like & she does often b4 talking to me or even after I tell her no. My neice & cousin are the same age difference to my oldest that my oldest is to my 2nd son so I don t agree with how for my mom the age difference applies to my two oldest sons but not to my oldest & my neice or cousin.Should I let him go even though my other children can't?

Basically, my brother can go out with his friends all the time, but I can’t, AT ALL. I asked what was the reason and my parents said it’s because I’m a girl, what’s that suppose to mean? It’s not like I’m going to go out and meeting up with some guy. All I’m asking is just to have some quality time with my friends. I’ve done everything. Do chores, get good grades in school, work hard, got a job, I’m starting to do after school activities (softball), and the answer is still no. I’m a good kid. I’m really am. I’ve never gotten in trouble at school. But I’m pretty sure it has to do with the fact that one of my sisters previously had gotten pregnant at 14, and she’s 32 right now. And this one time, my brother was speaking to his girlfriend on FaceTime and my mother supported it, but didn’t want to tell my dad because he’d freak out, but every time when one of my older sister makes a joke about me having a boyfriend (I don’t) my mom wants to turn serious. I’m smart enough to know not to go around and have sex with some boy and get pregnant. I trust them, but they clearly don’t have a trust in me. And now, I’m starting to lose my trust in them. I feel I can’t even talk to my parents about anything, especially when it has to do with going to my one my closest friends birthday party. (They still said no). Whenever I see someone going shopping at the mall with their friends, I feel upset because I can’t do the same. My parents are strict, wayy too strict, and it’s hurting me mentally.

My big sister died unexpectedly nearly two years ago. I still have another sister who lives out of state. I am the only son. I am 38 and not married. My big sister and I were seemingly close and had lots in common. Now I feel so alone. My other sister’s adult son is becoming a family man now so he and I will never be as close as we used to be anymore. My parents don’t really need me anymore either. The sister who died used to depend on me to come to her house to do repairs for her. Now that she’s gone I don’t know what to do with myself. I just keep remembering old times and living in the past. I want things back the way they used to be. But I know that’s impossible. I feel like a part of my soul died with her. All of the things she and I had in common(music, theatre, and musical theatre) I don’t have with anyone else. And I don’t think I ever will. Sometimes I think I would just like to join her. That no one will miss me anyway. I don’t know what to do with myself anymore. I don’t know where I belong.

Like, many people say that. Especially old peopleI'm in an LDR with a guy since I was 16 (I'm 20 now), and he was a fresher at University at that time, now he's 26. He lives in *another* country.I'm pretty sure he's the one for me, because it's so clear... We get along well. (We've met in person only once, but we talk daily, and video call daily). He loves me for my inner beauty, not just my body. I can't imagine living without this amazing man.I live in a bad/third-world country, whereas he lives in a first-world country. When I'm 23, he'll marry me and I'll move in with him in HIS country. His parents are amazing and will accept me as their daughter-in-law. I love him so much.But when I hear so many people say negative stuff about LDRs...I get nervous. Do you think these people are just generalizing their personal bad experiences?

I’m adopted so I assumed they never have sex at all. They didn’t need to, and it’s not like they’re having a new baby either. They’re really nice people, I thought they’d never do such gross things. My parents never talked to me about reproduction at all. I just found out from other kids at school back in 5th grade. It was never a family topic to discuss about. To this day, they still assume that I have no idea about the basics of relationships. So I thought they’re the same as well.

because your mom is being a control freak. Personally I feel gross when I get out of bed in the morning and do not shower. You are 18 you say, if you feel that strongly I would suggest making it a goal to get a job and then get your own place (at this point even before getting your license) or move in with a friend, or at least ask your friend if you can use their shower if you cannot move in with them

Just remember until you have alternative living arrangements made, do not piss off your mother. Since you are now 18, she can legally kick you out and leave you living on the streets.

You're right.He's addicted to video games.

You need to apprise your parents about it. That's all you can do.

Your parents are the ones who need to take charge.

You can help them out though if they ask for it.

I don’t even know where to begin. I’m very insecure about my wide big nose since I was 16 years old. People always making fun of me everywhere I go even my own mom. An example I moved to different country and I’ve lose contacts with my parents and when I finally found them. And I haven’t talk or see her in 11 years but when I FaceTime called her the first she said was... damn!!! You look so ugly and your nose getting so big. And I told her she hurting my feeling then she asked me if I can send her some money. And always asking me to send her money.Sometime I just want to kill myself when she say stuff like that to me and Ive been telling her to stop. Now I’m thinking about the money I was gonna send her and I’m gonna use that money to fix my nose. But my dad thinks nothing wrong with my nose. Any advice? Thanks y’all.

First of all my sister(20) had brought her bf secretly to our house and so she got caught. My parents divorced awhile ago. my dad remarried and my mom got a boyfriend now. So after she got caught my dad kicked my sister out and threw all her stuff out in a bag. He basically said he doesn’t want her as a daughter. Now he says he doesn’t want to me around her or like be associated with her no more. my mom says she is trying to find a new house and my sister is currently staying at our cousins house. I think my mom wants me to move in with her, but if I do I would feel like I’m leaving my dad. I just really feel like I’m stuck in the middle and one of the worst part is just that he doesn’t want me to see my sister anymore. I’m only 15 btw. My mind is having a lot of thoughts and any advice would be helpful rn.
