    Ok some of you might know that Iowa is gonna get alot of snow tonight through tommorrow. Well consequently tonight is poker night. So I tell my parents my buddy said I can stay at his house if the roads get to bad. They raise holy hell...the roads are gonna be bad...youll get snowed in...your wreck you blazer...

    I swear im treated like a 16 year old that just got his License. Im 20 been driving for 4 years, and they dont know 3/4s of the things ive done with vehicles from drift bashin to going muddin. (well sorta the muddin from how dirty my truck gets) I know they are worried about me but isnt there a point were I get to fend for myself...If i was at college right now(still on break) Im pretty sure I would be out driving in the snow anyway. Any of you guys have an idea on how to get my parents to know that i know how to drive.

    Take them wheeling one time, get stuck on purpose, then get unstuck to show them you know what to do in a situation like that.

    They are just concerned for your safety. Parents never really stop parenting, no matter how skilled you believe your kids to be.

    I wouldn't take it as an insult. I'm sure they have confidence in you. However if they believe you may endanger yourself they will probably let you know.

    :grin:

    Best advice your going to get.

    Your parents know that you can drive......its the other ****ers on the road they're worried about.

    Just keep in mind, any advice or whiney concern is convoluted love. Appreciate it before thier gone. That's the thing to do, everytime you get a lecture, just think, they'll be dead eventually, and you'll miss them. Dead... and rotting.

    I got yelled at at 8am when going to work this morning to put on a jacket....

    I'm walking out the door into a foggy day with icy roads, smoking, carrying my pistol AND my shotgun today, barely sentient, and I need a jacket to keep me warmzles

    Awwwwww mom.......

    take it all with a grain of salt? i live with my parents temporarily at 25... some days its cool others it sucks just a little. they are fairly calm nowadays though. put them through a bunch when i was yonger. from time to time i still do heh but thats part of being young making mistakes and learning from them. kinda have to listen to them while yer at home but sometimes just have to let it go out the other ear as well. they do mean well though. i know i cant wait to get my house/garage built this summer. then i can be with the wife and ALONE. peace and quiet is worth SO much!!! lol

    I'm 47 and my mom still bugs me about smoking and what it does to my health. Us parents NEVER stop worrying about our children, no matter what their age.

    On a serious note, they may be a little overprotective, but try to appreciate that while it's there. I worry a little about when I'll be able to "release" my kids and let them be adults... They're 4 and 6 right now, so I have a little time...

    Give your parents another five years or so. After a few years of you making good decisions, that show mature thought processes, they will see you as an adult. When you get to the point that you can use your parents as sounding boards, ask and receive advice, and incorporate said advice into your own style of thinking, that is when it gets good. You just have to do the difficult part now. Good luck.
