Overprotective parents and dating
If you have the kind of parents who set a lot of rules and are basically just super strict about everything from grades to boys to friends, trust me when I say that I feel your pain.I love my parents to death and owe them everything, but when I was in high school, they made my life incredibly frustrating by being ridiculously strict. For one thing, I was never allowed to go to anyone’s house unless my mom called to talk to their parents first. My mom would call my friend’s parents to check up on me to see if I was really going there or to see what we were doing.That was when L had to awkwardly explain to my mom that her parents couldn’t talk because they were taking a bath… When I was 15-years-old, I started dating a guy we’ll call D.
