Hi，everyone，,I’m 18 years old and I’m going to a university in Beijing this autumn.My parents insist on going with me to help me with my daily life.But I think I can manage it all by myself.How can I make them change their ideas?
As a student of your age, I understand your situation.I think it is wise of you to go all by yourself. But you need to deal with your problem cautiously.You’d better avoid hurting the feelings of your parents.Here are some of my suggestions.
As your parents, they may have many reasons to go with you.This is your first time to be far away from home for so long, and they surely have some worries and wish to see everything go well. So have a talk with them peacefully and listen patiently.
And then, express your thanks for all their love and care.Persuade them you can manage everything well this time just as you did many times in the past.Remember to invite them to Beijing when you have already settled down.I am sure they will understand you and take your idea into consideration.
All the best.
