My Parents Are Being Unfair. What Can I Do?
Being a teen can be tough business. As a teen you may feel like the world is against you and you have been given parents who just don’t understand. It may seem like no matter what you do right it is somehow seen as wrong in your parents’ eyes. It might even seem that your parents are always on a side that is not yours. Sometimes it seems like your parents’ jobs are to play devil’s advocate to every opinion you have. It may be very difficult and frustrating to feel like your parents aren’t on your side.
