  • You may not be a child anymore but you are still striving toward maturity. Your Mother is just being a parent with concerns for you.

    Talk with your mother about how you can both establish better communication and let her know your voice should be heard too but try not to have your voice go above the level you have not yet reached.

  • i'm sorry sweetie about your mom acting like that with you. Im 23yr old. and i remember my mom not listening wat so ever about anything I had to say. and I just stop trying. when i turned 19 i stop talking to her and moved out i have not talk to her since and its hard cuz i have 2 kids and pregnant now, i hate not speaking to her cuz u only get one mom in life. but it is also hard having a mom not listen at all. if u don't mind me asking wat caused your mom to start yelling anyway?

  • hugsBeing a mom isn't easy. Sometimes we get scared when our kids start growing up. Be patient with mom and tell her you want to talk all of this out. Together you both can figure it all out.

  • First off--You need to show respect to get respect.
    Second--believe it or not, your mom was your age once. She does know what it is like. You might not like the decisions she makes, but she IS trying to do what is best for you. That is a parents job. You don't have to like it--that's not part of the deal. But, if you want to try to convince your mom you are as mature as you think you are--you should respect her decisions. Then, after a bit of listening to her and following her rules, she may be more willing to listen to what you have to say. But, you need to say it respectfully.
