Jennings hung onto the idea of hitting 18 and being free of parental controls. Actually, it’s becoming fairly obvious that Jazz tries to live her life at top speed since her gender confirmation surgery. First, the issue of a boyfriend and wanting intimacy so soon after her surgery arose. Next, she wanted a place for boyfriend Ahmir to stay. Now, she persists in arguing with her parents.

In the TLC show, we heard her dad saying all the sensible things to her, as any concerned dad would. He did acknowledge that Jazz wants her independence. He said she wants “to have whoever, whatever [she] wants,” adding, “that’s kind of what you’re looking for.” However, he also said that Jazz is still in recovery and she needs to stay at home so they can help her through it all.

Jennings surrenders to her parents eventually

Eventually, Jazz Jennings surrendered to her parents’ wishes. Actually, listening to Jazz discuss the issues with them, she comes across as a bit of a sulky teen. In fact, that’s not very adult, so perhaps she needs to stay home longer. Later, she took to her Twitter to talk about the outcome.

She posted, “My parents won! I’m not moving out! Even though I knew in my heart that this was the change I desired, I would only do it with their support, and I didn’t have it. I was so ready to prove to them (and myself) that I could do it!! Oh well…”
