Parenting Your Teenager: What Teens Say About Parents

What's hard for teenagers

Having people who don't understand you trying to control you.

Parents not understanding the things you have to deal with.

Having to deal with school.

Being accepted by friends.

Having someone really close to you leave you.

Being blamed for almost everything because we are teen-agers.

Living with divorced parents and having no say in where you go.

Dealing with boy/girl friends.

Trying to deal with a parent who doesn't want to understand and take time to listen to your comments.

Not being financially independent.

Meeting parents' expectations and never being good enough.

Knowing your parents are right.

What's best about being a teen

Getting away with immature behavior.

The chance to try new things.

Having your whole life ahead of you.

Youth, energy and time.

Lots to look forward to.

Getting a driver's license

Almost being done with school.

Friends and relationships.

Not having to work.

Summer vacation.

What parent's don't understand

Our schedules and our social lives.

That restrictions don't work and talking does.

We're old enough to make our own choices.

We need to have our freedom every once in a while.

That we make mistakes just like they did.

Grades aren't the only thing I'm good for; I can make you proud by just being me!!

We love you even if you aren't around.

Threats make me fear you, not respect you.

What the world is like now, not what it was like when they were kids.

We have feelings, too.

Their words can hurt really badly.

It really is hard to live in a family where your opinion doesn't count.

We understand trust isn't cheap but we have to learn some things for ourselves.
