I think the situation is different now than it was 5 years ago.
What do you do when your parents want to control your money?...
A few issues:
1) Everything is different from five seconds ago, more so five years ago. What situation are you talking about?
2) My parents don't control my money. They haven't since I started working for my own money since I was 14. If
(a big if) they did, I would be doing my best to become independent as soon as I could. In the meantime, be respectful and help them out around the house, do errands, etc. Also, by "your," do you mean money that really belongs to parents for the use of the children or money that belongs to the child, but is controlled by the parents?
