I was reading thru comments on 'Woman being ambitious...Is it a Crime?' post. Loads of comments on parents and the environment parents provide for their kids! Some cool thoughts! Anywho, I wanted a discussion on parents and daughters, daughters with high dreams, supportive parents, and yet parents not letting girls go off on their own to explore the world.
You know, I feel they are right when they say the world can be a big, mean place.... on the other hand, I believe in inherent innocence of all.... no matter how 'bad' a person is. What about parents being over-protective of their girls? Does it prevent girls to come into their own? Be truly independent!! I also read a few comments on how girls should fight for themselves with their own husbands, in-laws, etc. (my focus is only parents)..... but I have found it ain't easy.... especially, when you don't want to upset your parents....and there is always a feeling that girls get emotionally 'blackmailed' depending on circumstances...... parents have the kids' good in their minds, but there does come a point when thought processes diverge.... what then? .... how would you convince your parents then? I don't think we can just go off without consent?? .. sigh, consent...wierd word....anywho, what's your definition of smothering? How much can you actually sacrifice or compromise?? Sometimes, I think dreams are much more important...and there is no way I can give up, and yet eventually end up compromising....so many things.... i can do (okay, good ones....mostly career/friendship development, etc), but end up not doing mostly cause of parents...or maybe I make it a reason thinking it won't happen..... sometimes, I guess that can also pent up frustration, but parents must have sacrificed a lot for us, too....we might not even know how much.
Oh, also had a question about relatives and all..... why the heck is everybody so hung up, in their own lives.... caring the least about each other... especially in US? So much rivalary for no reason what so ever!!
And if you got what I am trying to say.... all jumbled thoughts, mind enlightening me on the issue?
Eagerly waiting to hear your thoughts!

I have only one thing to say, look at this ad and have a frank discussion with your parents.
