    FACTS:
    -She's forcing her to be homeschooled against her will. And now that she's 18, she won't even let her go back and finish her senior year.
    -She's an adult and she won't let her buy her own cell phone with her own money.
    -She got mad when she found she has a Facebook, even though she's an adult and anyone 13 or older is allowed to create a Facebook.
    -She won't ever let her hang out with any of her friends.
    -She doesn't allow her to leave the house unless her mom accompanies her the entire time.

    So what do you think? Is her mother an overprotective and/or abusive bitch?

    I would say that it's abusive, since not all abuse is physical. I would definitely say that effectively locking a child, teenager, or adult up and preventing them from socializing with human beings as abuse.
    where is a link for this? or is this a presonal situation?

    I'm not so sure it's abusive, but definitely overprotective.

    I would say this is abusive. She's 18 now, she needs to leave, she doesn't have to do it on her own, but she needs to reach out, and be proactive in finding someone to help her get away from that horrible situation. She needs to start the process though, nothing is going to happen if she doesn't.

    It was on a private forum that doesn't allow public browsing, I can screenshot it though if you'd like?
