Socially Incompetent - July 21st 2009, 08:46 AM

Hi its been awhile since i've been on and happy to be back.

Im 16 this year, and a lot of things are happening at the moment.

My mum is overprotective and never lets me out much, i have this constant fear of her, because she has put this fear into me. She constantly tells me off everyday for little things and always makes up stuff about my friends which is untrue. Everyone else can go out to parties and do stuff and im never allowed to tag along with them. When i was into surfing i was too scared to surf at a different spot because i thought my mum would get mad for it being further away. She made me quit surfing so now all i do is sit at home and play computer.

My whole life is basically going to school, and coming home.

I don't have many friends , only my friends from school.

And i feel as thought i cant be friends with anyone else because i wont have the time and am "lesser" than them.

What do i do?

If I were in your situation I would try talking to your mom about it. Maybe you guys could come to some sort of compromise where you can go out as long as your cellphone is turned on and she knows who you're with and where you are. That's how it worked when I was your age with my mom.
If she's not willing to compromise you could maybe get an adult to talk to her about it? You're 16, having a social life is part of growing up at that age and you shouldn't be forced to miss out on it.
You could always sneak out lol, but then when you get caught it would only make her feel more justified when she places all these rules and boundaries on you.
