When I was younger, the only place I went was school and never got to go anywhere with friends. Now, I want to go hang out and my mom says I can t unless she meets them and their parents and knows where I m at.

I m always at home and just want to spend time with friends. Can she legally make me stay home? What are my rights?
Update: Update: I live in the USA
