because you are 16 and probably way to judgemental. When I was your age I thought I knew it all and that my parents were stupid and would never understand anything I told them etc. When you are older you realize your parents are smart and would have understood etc...so its just because of your age
the way it is.
Do you think they don’t respect your opinion?<br />
I see parents all the time that think they know best and won't listen to their kids thoughts.
They are strict.
