A battle lost before it's even begun....
The misery parents can cause is unbelievable. As a matter of fact, the misery FAMILY can cause is unbelievable. Even when they are beyond wrong, and you are right, your still wrong. Almost every battle you have with them is a losing battle, even when they are being ridiculous or unfair, which is quite often. They have the power. They have the control. And you have none. Even when you deserve some.
You maintain good grades. You don't do underage partying. You don't smoke. You don't do drugs. You don't have sex. You don't even sneak out of the house. You are kind to others and smile at strangers.
Isn't this reason enough for them to hand you some power?? Even if it's a little?? Even when they admit they know these things about you and your wise choices?? What right do they have to tell your almost 18 self how to dress when you could be out there getting stoned instead? What right do they have to forbid you from seeing a friend because your room is messy, when you could just choose to slip out at night, but don't because you know they trust you not to. Its just not fair. They should be more understanding. Especially seeing that they were once in your place not too too long ago. But they don't. It's a hopelesss hope.
