  • Confused. Are you a mother? Are you a disgruntled teen? How old are you?

  • i also would like to know your age and situation. Sometimes when we wwant to do something our mothers "know best" and will say otherwise.

    There's a song out there "Your gonna miss this, Your gonna want it back".

    things may be tough now or your personalities are clashing but please, if you and your mom generally have a good relationship, don't move just yet - especially if you've made some "bad" choices of late....

    Enjoy the time you have with her and the help (or what your may perceive as control) she provides you!.

    Good luck.

  • If you are wise, child care, transportation and a job...why not try a little independance. Many times moms are trying to be helpful but say things that can be hurtful or seem like they are controlling. It comes from a loving place. You and your mom may need some time apart or seperate places. Just be sure that you have a safety net incase it doesn't work out. Another place to stay or the option to move back in with mom. good luck

  • Okay... let me just start by saying I am 21 and less than a year ago my mom and I were going through the whole "i don't want you to grow up thing." If like the other ladies said you are independent and able to her! Don't just scream and yell about it. Do everything you possibly can to show her how capable you are, and then go and do it. If your mom is like mine she is never going to accept it. So you have to decide that you are old enough and ready, and then draw the sand in the line...and be prepared to stick to it! No running back to mama when things are tough or suck :) Good luck.
