I know some people hate when their parents are overprotective, but I would love it. My parents never ask me how things are. When I trudge home and I'm feeling depressed, they dont even ask me what's wrong. Nope. "Emmy, do you homework! Did you do your chore? Clean the coop?" I keep really good grades, and a 4.0 GPA. I work hard for them, and i sometimes feel like no one cares. My friends all get showered in gifts, priveledges, and celebrations if they get 3 B's and an A. Me? No one cares when I get all A's... They take it for granted. I have half a mind to just let my grades slip so that they'll know what it's like. I do more for keeping myself pure and safe than they do... They never ask who I'm texting, why I'm wearing that, blah. I sound like a reverse teenager, I know, but it's not fun to feel like they don't care what happens. They're good parents; they just "trust me to make my own friends". Is it so wrong that I want someone to care, to praise me for my efforts, and encourage me?
