I think you were asking me, jdarley, why it might be that your family is opposing your study. Have they opposed other choices you have made, say, for instance, smoking, or drugs? How do you discern if their opposition is genuine or motivated by evil? I think Auld Soul asked for the specific bible references that suggested that this opposition is to be expected. I encourage you to look them up in context. I thought Van Gogh gave excellent advice here.
Please do not alienate yourself from your loving parents Jdarley. Be gentle on them. They are the means by which Jehovah has given you the precious gift of life. They must be so concerned for the well being of their precious daughter. To me, you sound like a sincere and moral young person, so they must be very proud of you! Please respect them for that even if you do not agree with them. Why don't you make a deal with them and try to involve them in your decision-making process?
I am reminded that Jesus remained with his family until he was of age, and he was likely in his thirties when he was baptized. At that age there was no question that he thorougly understood the implications of his decision. Nevertheless, he was not hindered in his study by his parents, and he was well able to defend his beliefs to the elders, even at twelve! So I think you can continue to study and learn without taking the rather permanent leap to baptism.
