My mom is always looking through all of the notes and stuff my boyfriend gives me, even though they are in my backpack for school. and whenever I'm talking on the phone to him (my boyfriend) she always picks up the phone or stands outside my door listening to every little thing i say. and one day i even caught her going through all of my e-mails from people. What i want to know is why does she do this? She says she perfectly fine with me and him going out, so i dont get it because shes making it seem like she doesnt trust us
she probably just cares a lot about you and doesn't want anything happening to you. it sounds like she's just worried. as she is your mom, she would like to be in control of all the decisions you make so you don't make the wrong ones. i've never really been in the situation you're in considering i'm a guy and it seems like my mom keeps a pretty good eye on me without looking through all my personal stuff, but i would say that if this really bothers you then you should tell her some time... unless you've already done that?
I agree with lostyouth06, you should tell your mom how you feel. Maybe she wants to get to know you better and feels like she's missing out in your life and just wants to be a part of it. Try spending more quality time with her, while asking her if she could please just butt out of "spying on you", and if she wants to know something, tell her she's free to ask or something.
I agree with sweetiepie, try talking to ur mom and if that doesnt work then u might have to hide things that u dont want her to see. Tell her about things like stuff ur doing in classes and things like if ur in a fight with a friend or if u have a bf/if u broke up with him or not, things like that and she'll stop snooping
