My parents are way overprotective. I can’t do anything without supervision. I’m 14 and can handle things. I feel locked up, and I’m getting depressed.
Your parents don’t keep you under lock and key to make you miserable—it’s because they care enough to keep you safe. Still, it can drive a girl crazy to feel like she has no freedom.
Let your parents know you feel ready to take on more responsibility. Tell them you’re not asking to suddenly do anything you want but that you just want to take small steps toward teen-appropriate independence. Hopefully, they will gradually let you do more things on your own.
