Ghetto Gurl, you are so right. Kids have no freedom. It is a sad fact of life that you cannot choose your parents. A wise and loving parent will give the child as much freedom as the child can handle, when the time is right.
The problem is, we adults are just kids like you, except we got old. Age does not automatically make one wise. Only experience can do that. Here is an old, but very true statement about wisdom: Good judgment comes from wisdom. Wisdom comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.
Parents can cause so much damage, and they don’t even realize it. Most parents, and I hope yours are in this category, want to be good, kind, and loving, and provide experiences and opportunities for their children that will help them to become happy, productive adults. Unfortunately, parenting skills do not come automatically. We usually only have the crappy example of our own parents to go by, and we make the same mistakes they did. Those of us who are more creative find ways to make additional mistakes too.
But, you can often make something good of a bad thing. Learn from the mistakes of your own parents. Resolve to be a better parent yourself, if you choose to have children later. Learn all you can about raising, loving, and teaching children. Break the cycle of bad parenting. When your children grow up and have children of their own, they will have had a great example to live by.
Hang in there. Life sucks, as they say, for kids. It also does for adults. If you are lucky, there is a short period in your life, usually right after you leave home to live on your own, where life is wonderful and you feel very free. Later, life’s burdens and responsibilities begin to weigh you down.
Try your best to enjoy your young life. You have your whole life ahead of you, which is a precious gift. You will be free sooner than you think. You may, someday, even look back on your childhood with fondness. :D
