Dear Dolores: I’m 19 years old and my parents are still overprotective. I know I’ve made some mistakes in the past, but they won’t let go. If I go out at all, I have to be home by 9:30 and if I’m not back on time, they go to my friend’s house to get me. It’s embarrassing. So, my question is, why are my parents so overprotective and how can I make them less so?
