Question of the Week by The Brotherhood of Men

Is it normal to feel discouraged about hobbies if your parents get too involved?

I am going to assume that you are around the age of 14–18 years old, and still living in your parent's house.

With that being the case the answer can be yeah. You are wanting to be your own person and when your parents jump into something that you like doing it is like the squares are invading a party. Yet I would encourage you to look at it in a different way.

Ask yourself why they are they wanting to do what I am doing?

It could be that they are wanting to monitor you and see that you aren’t doing anything wrong. Yet. it could also be that they are wanting to be in your life. They want to understand your passions and what drives you. Most of the time your boring parents are wanting to spend time with you. When they know you are in the basement working on a model RC plane they know they can come down and talk with you and learn from you.

Most of the time they are wanting to spend time with you. They do love you and want to have as much time as possible with you before you leave the nest and live your life.

Try asking them why they are showing interest. When they ask annoying questions take it as you are able to teach your parents something.
