Angry Is it not obvious? - July 31st 2010, 09:04 PM

Is it not obvious that something I do when I think no one else is home is something I do not want everyone to know about? Is it not obvious that phone calls should be private? Is it not obvious??? This is something I want to know. Because yes, I do sing when I'm home alone. And my singing is something that is very personal and private to me. So OBVIOUSLY I do not want my mom to tell my stepdad that the day I thought I was home alone I was singing! I thought it would be obvious that if I think I'm home alone, i'm going to do things I don't do in front of people. And if I'm considering how bad things are and make a very upset phone call to my mom while she is out of town I don't want a random person to know! WTF aren't these things obvious? Well???

Hmm, sounds like your family is a bit intrusive. I know the feeling. When I was younger, the things I wanted to not become obvious were made their business just because I'm their daughter, they think they have the right.
Well, as you get older once you turn 18, once you're old enough to move out and take care of yourself, you'll forget about them and their intruding and can live free in your own life. Maybe when you go to College if you want to do that someday.

You don't have the right to privacy when you're a minor child. =P Some parents just take advantage of that fact more often than others. Personally, I think your best bet would be to pretend it doesn't bother you. The more upset you appear to be, the more suspicious/nosy your parents will become.

Welcome to growing up. You're only 13, you're still young. So of course your parents are always going to be right behind you when you do something. You've still got plenty of years to get used to it, because it's unlikely that it will stop. I'm 20 and even my parents are right behind me whenever I do something! All you can do is pretend it doesn't bother you or just joke about it! The more you don't acknowledge it, the less your parents will be so.. parent-like.

I've been through hell and back and came out stronger than ever.

I agree with Amber. You're only thirteen, so unfortunately you're going to have to deal with your parents being around a lot. When you're a teenager you're in that awkward stage between being an adult and being a child. You want complete freedom but at the same time you're not quite ready to have it all yet. You just have to get through the next few years, and eventually you'll be able to live free of your parents. It's a right of passage, you have to go through it in order to become an adult. It won't last forever.
