Thanks, dad.

Yes, don't mind me, I'm just an ignorant child. Yeah dad, don't mind me, I shouldn't be reading books like The Kite Runner because ''I'M TOO UNDERAGED.'' f*** YOU. I'M SO TIRED OF YOU TREATING ME LIKE A CHILD. YES I should know what the f*** is going on in the world, politically and economically. For christ's sake, I'm 17 years old now. I'm not 11. I'm not too underaged to know about the war in Afghanistan and the Taliban, in fact I know so little about politics around the world because YOU have sheltered me from everything, not informing me, discussing with me or anything like I know other parents do with my friends. f*** that. I'm probably one of the least enlightened in my class about politics. So if I'm not gunna learn from you, THEN LET ME LEARN FROM MY f***ING BOOKS.

Some parents are like that. It's good you're trying to learn yourself anyway.

Well, if this helps, I lived in a small city where our nearest mall/movie theater was like 30 minutes speeding on the freeway (I guess like 45 minutes normal driving), we got our first starbucks just some years ago (lol) and thousands of the people counted in our population are actually in the jails on the "outskirts" of our little city...

When I moved out of home, it was as though I had been living in a whole other universe because everything was so foreign to me :o I was very much sheltered. But as far was politics and knowing what's going on in the world, I did my own research, and I read/watched the news on my own (it was kind of required, too, for the AP econ exam...).

Have you seen that movie Matilda? She read so many books!!! :) Hehe. Just keep reading!

But yeah, parents have a tendency to always view their begotten as children... but, with time, if you show them you can handle it, and if you show them you're mature, they gradually grant you some slack and trust you more and more to make your own decisions...

I'm sure your parents are better than mine, but I don't hate my parents for it. I have learned to accept people for their flaws. You should be mature enough to stop thinking crap about your parents. You wouldn't be here without them.

Thumbs up! Read on!
Reading melts away ignorance, so do it for your own enlightenment.
