I am 23 years old, I have been a wife, mother and home owner since I was 18. I live everyday as an adult, I have adult responsibilities, I have adult fun..... BUT my parents still tell me what to do...
I am very close with them ( and the rest of my family) I talk to them everyday and usually see them almost every day .... and honestly being " told what to do" doesnt bother me that much on a regular basis ( it isnt like they try and ground me or give me chores or things like that.... but I guess more of an advice type thing -- like if I say I want to do something, they gie me their opinion of why I shouldnt lol ) ....... Anyways usually it doesnt bother me becuase I agree with them or I just ignore them, but now it has gotten bad.
My dad especially will not leave me alone about certain things like going to church .... he started going to church a few months ago, and now he is very church oriented, basically obsessed and he thinks I need to be that way too... I have gone to his church several times and I just dont like it , I believe in God, but they are very judgemental ( and so is he) and i just dont like going.....
Second, he constantly tells us we need to move to a different city ( we are planning on moving to a bigger house here in this town) but because he doesnt like this town ( we have a very crappy mayor) ... and since we are looking for a house I am always looking at houses or talking about houses ( I am excited ) ... and he wont even let me say something about this town without getting a lecture about how we are NOT staying in this town....
last of all is Facebook...... I understand alot of people have drama problems with facebook... but I do not, I have pretty much every person I went to elementary school with , old friends, distant family members, etc... I like it because all of those people can see my kids grow, and we can keep up with each .... I have never had a problem with "drama" ..... but because he sees and hears stuff about facebook, he thinks EVERYONE can instantly read our deepest darkest secrets or something.... and again if I even say something like " I seen my old friends newest baby's pictures on Facebook" I get a lecture of how facebook is evil ...
SO my question is, how can I make them understnad I AM an adult, but without hurting our relationship even more...
