My name is Morgan and I'm 15 years old. I'm having difficulties with my mother. She is constantly trying to control every last thing I do even when I eat. I would really love some tips on how to stop her from trying to control me. I'm almost 16 years old I'm a big girl and I should be able to make my own choices and live with them and If I make mistakes then fine I'll live with them. But at this moment in time I'm loosing my mind. I need to be in more control of my own life than my mother. I'm not sure what to do really. We don't have a good relationship because of this issue and I honestly want to have a good relationship but I won't let myself do that until she learns that I have to control my life and make my own mistakes and live with the choices I make NOT her. If anyone has any ideas on how to help it would be very much appreciate it.
Thanks so much,
