I know that my parents aren’t very strict compared to some, but compared to most of my friend’s parents, they are very strict. My mom won’t let me do anything outside of school (and sometimes in school) without talking to my dad first. And this sometimes takes weeks for them to decide on a simple issue. I’m not allowed to wear anything tight-fitting or short. And I can’t download anything on my iPod without one of my parents’ approval. I feel like I don’t have much freedom, but I feel bad about complaining at the same time. Can anyone relate? Any advice?

I know what you mean. I grew up sheltered by my overprotective mom so I couldn’t really do things outside of school such as hanging out with friends at the mall or movie theatre and couldn’t pick out my own clothes. Some of the girls made fun of me and put me down. I didn’t have anyone who could relate to me. While I know it can be really hard, it’s imperative that you honor your parents during this season. They’re just trying their best to protect you because they care very deeply about you. It can be annoying though I won’t lie lol. But you’re very fortunate and blessed to have parents like that compared to some who’ve been abused or neglected. This probably seems redundant, but if you will continue to honor your parents because it honors God when you do it, you will reap blessings from Him in abundance. Use this time to learn, grow, and gain Godly wisdom from them. Ask your youth pastor or a female mentor for advice if you and your parents cannot agree on an issue. And remember-God cares very much about you and your concerns so don’t hesitate to reach out to Him. No matter how many times you do it. He delights to hear your heart speaking to Him and will not grow impatient. I hope this helps and I’m praying for joy, peace, and endurance. 🙂
