OPP: Over-Bearing Mom

Here is today’s OPP:
Hi! My name is Kelsey and I need help with my mom. I’m 16 and she is trying to make me to a bunch of stuff I don’t want to. She already made me play golf this year. Now she wants me to play volleyball next year, she wants me to join the drama class and she wants me to run for student council (she’s already planning how to get me elected next year). The drama class kinda sounds like fun but I really don’t want to do the rest of it. She’s really pushing me because she did it all when she was in high school. She says it helps to build character and will help with college applications. I just want to be me and none of it sounds fun. How do I get her to back off so I can do my own thing and not live her life? Thanks
I remember when I didn’t want to do any extra curricular activity so my parents started to push me into some of them. And you know what? I started to like them. I was gaining new friends, learning new things and they were pretty fun! I understand the feeling of parents forcing their life on you so they can try to re-live their own, but at the same time in this case I think her mom is just trying to look out for her. Plus, her mom makes a good point about college…
What do you think? What advice do you have for her?
Peace. Love – Assistant Producer Stephanie
