I think I'm over protective of myself when I'm around my parents

I remember my mom wouldn't let me date my friend because she wanted me to be her lonely kid forever.

Some parents become way overprotective beacause they believe the day they wake up on their eightteeth b-day they're going to know everthing, which ishonestly stupid, but true. If I were an parent I would let my children start dating not when there physically mature but mentally mature and raised wise enough not to fall into peer pressure.

Easier said than done. What if you think your child is still mentally immature at 30? They'll believe they're mature while you'll believe otherwise, and then you'll watch them try to chew through their reins.

My mom is like that. However, my dad doesn't really care.

Kind of off topic, but if I ever had a kid I would want to try my best not to over-protect them.
Children have to go out there and experience life on their own.

The more you restrain your child, the more your child rebels.

my parents let me date whenever they said I was ready. My first relationship was in the 6th grade, and honestly we never did anything. My mom can be overprotective, but I feel like they have trust me. Well, at least my dad does.

My mom says she just doesn't trust society.

Define "overprotective." I feel like every case is different.

My mum wouldn't let me out the house unless it was to go to school until I was 15. Now it's a habit, and I don't leave the house anyway.

I was raised with an over-protective mother. What I've learned through my experiences is that you need to start rebelling against them because if you don't, they will end up controlling who you are. I started rebelling at around 15 years-old and ever since, I haven't regretted that choice of standing up. This doesn't mean that they have bad intentions; parents that care for their children will do almost anything to protect them from harm and bad influences. Sometimes, parents aren't ready to let go of their children, so they try to baby them.
