Parents Just Don't Understand
Inspired by my god-sister, who happens to be a full blown teenager, I've decided to take a crack at why parents don't understand their children. How many times have you found yourself saying "Pops' tripping, he want me to ask for my bike back, you know I wouldn't trip." Ok, maybe not in those exact words but you get the picture. We've all had moments where we didn't understand why our mom's and dad's or parental figures made us do things or say things that quite honestly we didn't feel like doing or saying. Or maybe it was something we wanted to do and they said no!!! The fact is, parents love us enough to protect us from the poor decisions us young people can make at times. It can be overbearing and suffocating at times but their hearts are usually in the right place. In reverse, parents even though you don't have to answer to your children, at least talk to them about why you make the decisions you make. Once the lines for communication are open, things may change and your child/teenager may be more receptive to the overruling decisions you make. Results may vary lol. "So to all the kids all across the land, there's no need to argue parents just don't understand".
