How do you deal with a controlling parent?

I think the best way to deal with a controlling parent is to be honest and open with them. The more they know about your life, the more they are willing to let you do things. If you try and hide everything from them, of course they will not trust you and try to control everything. Just talk with them!

Talk to them without being accusatory/defensive. Tell them how you feel and try to negotiate for something you want (like a later curfew). Start small and build their trust.

Try sitting your parent down and have a good long converstion with them. You would be suprised how much they understand.
