Exclamation I want out.. - February 7th 2011, 09:57 PM

Situation : parents are jehovahs witnesses and they want to control everything about me. Religion, girl friend, friends, everything. They homeshooled me so none of my friends could talk to me. They refuse to let me get my liscense or go to drivers Ed. I'm thinking of running away to get away from it all. I don't want this jehovahs witness life. Any advice would be appreciated

Well, you're 16, try to get emancipated. Most judges love anyone under 18 and if you can prove you can get a job and live on your own they'll let you get emancipated. I support the emancipation in this situation because I would go insane if I couldn't talk to my friends.

I would wait it out even though I understand your situation is very problematic. Even if you manage to live on your own, you're still only 16, try and tell your parents you want to do what any other 16 year olds do at their age, even if it goes against your parents' religion.
