Ah yes, I got your back there. @_@ My dad used to ask me what is it on the internet that I keep wasting my time on. It got to the point where I spent every waking hour in front of the computer, browsing, playing online games (Ragnarok, at that time. Stupid addiction indeed), or whatever it was that I liked to do. It was so bad that my dad threatened to ban my computer, and when I didn't listen, he really did. He took away my monitor for several days. Back then I didn't have a laptop so taking away my monitor would mean no computer for me, at all. I suppose if you really want to stop you should look for other things to do, other things you're comfortable with doing, to distract yourself from always using it. Like reading, for example, which is
more productive than just spending time on the internet? Ask your mom to help you with it, if you're really concerned about it. If my dad hadn't taken away my monitor and banned me from using the computer for several days I think I wouldn't have been able to stop...
As for your parents... my parents are like that, too. If they know that I have an LJ and that I'm pretty open about my life, they'll freak. I'm not exactly sure how to get around this, either. I know it's not nice to hide people who are important to you and it's really a dilemma. I'm not going to suggest this, but this is what I do with my parents. I tell them that I have a "friend from school", and when they ask for the friend's name, I just tell them what their names are. When they're ready (if they'll ever get ready...) I'll probably tell them the truth. @_@ It IS technically lying so I wouldn't suggest doing it, but... well.
Listening to you, I'm getting the impression that your parents are pretty traditional parents. Yeahhh, it's very frustrating when they just dismiss your opinion, especially when the reasons are "we know better than you" or "you're still too young". Maybe the next time they impose their opinions to you, you can ask them why and have a discussion or debate or the like. It usually ends with a fight every time I do that, but if you're clear-headed and you really want them to listen to you, it probably won't. Or you could pull the whole "whatever my opinion is my opinion and that is final" thing on them, because really, your opinion IS yours and that is final! /brick'd
I'm sorry I'm not much help. But good luck! ♥
