Hi

Just wanted to say that I am 58 years old and I wouldn't leave the house without saying where I am going. It is just a mature sign of respect to other members of the household to do so. This is not a difficult courtesy to extend to others, Honey.. sure not a battle worth fighting.

Gently, I also want to say this... if my 15 year old told me she was not a virgin, I, like I am sure your mom feels, would be scared of what is going on while you are out. It would be more upsetting if Mom just didn't give a damn, you know?

Sometimes, especially in mom-daughter relationships, the love a mom feels and demonstrates can often be misconstrued as simply control. Mamas are like bears and we want to do everything we can to protect our kids and keep them safe.

It sounds like you do have a Mama that cares and obviously you are a daughter that cares because you are taking time to post and ask about this. Sit and talk more with Mama. Please. I really think it will help if both of you can put your concerns on the table and talk about them.

Best wishes

Hi sorry to hear about your relationship with your mom. I had the same problems with my daughter. She left when she was 16 and I didn't talk to her for 2 years. I didn't know if she was alive or dead. She left because she didn't like the rules. Doing the dishes, feeding the dog and keeping her room clean. And I too needed to know where she was all the time. Being a mother is not an easy task and your mom probably does not want you to get mixed up with drugs, or the wrong crowd. Anyway 2 years after she took off she knocked on my door in tears and looking awful and asked me if she could come home. She came in and apologized for being a jerk and a rotten kid. She said her leaving home at that time was the worst mistake she ever made and understood why I had rules and guidelines. She is 24 now and we are the best of friends. Have you tried to compromise with your mom? Maybe you can to talk to her and make her listen (without fighting) and tell her how you feel. Hope things work out for you remember you only have 1 mom.
