What if your parents are not very observant and you want to be more observant? I don't want to move out because I worry about them and I want them to grow spiritually too. The best option for me is to move out. I have talked to them about being more observant but they are not interested in changing. Reply

in response to Esmeralda Miguel:

Lead by example. As you grow in your observance and nurture your relationship with your parents, they will likely warm up to some of what you are doing. Don't make your goal to change them; make it to inspire them as you live a fulfilling life of authentic observant Judaism. Reply
