Question by tequilla_to_kill: How do I break away from parental control without severing ties forever?
I am nineteen and my parents still act like I am seven. My curfew is nine o'clock and I hardly have a social life. I am trying to attend college, but in no hurry for a degree and trying to find a full time job as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant). I want to move out of my hometown Aka Flagstaff and start my own life. employment opportunities are too hard to find here and college and living expenses are through the roof! I talked to my father about this and all he says is you will have plenty of time to start your own life once you get your degree through NAU.. he has my life planned out for me and it really bothering me I feel like I am being smothered. I also in love with someone in Arkansas who is currently a junior in high school. I want to see him but neither one of my parents supports me, or will let me.. what should I do? Should I sacrifice everything I have with my father for love and freedom?

i understand this completely. the only thing that might work is to move out and support yourself. but i know that is hard, especially for someone in college. try and talk to your parents and tell them how you feel. give them some good facts about getting away. like that you can get better work opportunities. or something to that extent.
