'After all I'm just their baby.' and it's not like that I did something wrong and against their will but they just want to feel secure about me... I hate it because I can never do what most of my mates unless I lie to my parents. I proved many times I am a trustworthy person but that didn't change anything in the case of their behaviour... My advice would be treat them the same way as they do to you haha maybe they'll understand their mistake. Or play with them for instance lie all the time about anything. Maybe they'll learn their lesson, huh?
When I read you post it made me
. I understand your frustration, but your parents love you and I'm sure you love them. The sorts of issues that you raise can be fixed with time. Don't make the situation worse by lying to them all the time. If you feel that you want to be treated like an adult, then you have to act like one. It is hard for parents sometimes to accept that their children are growing up; but in most cases it is an overwhelming need in them to keep their children safe. Ok! that is your parents problem, I know, but maybe if you understand that you will understand your parents a little better too.
No one in the world will ever love you the way your parents do. You are the most special and important person in their universe.
Keep talking to each other. Try to have an adult conversation with your Mum first and let her know that you feel betrayed by their inability to trust you. Ask for the opportunity to gain their trust.
I know you guys can work through it.
