why dont parents understand!
I'd have to disagree with what ichibanarky said.
Parents do not understand far better than you - it is 20-30+ years later than when they were kids, and times have changed drastically.
The quality of life, forms of socializing, and coming-of-age milestones are so much different.
Parents have to learn to accept that this isn't the 70s anymore - they're going to have to expand their parenting skills beyond what they learned back then.
And just because they experienced a certain event doesn't mean that they fully understood it, knew how to handle it, and knows that the circumstances have changed.
That's a pretty general question...what is it they don't understand about?
I think you'll find that they actually understand far more than you realize...as a matter of fact, they understand far better than you do.
Parents have 'been there, done that' and they know what to expect.
It's their job to protect you from having to learn things the hard way, and while you may see it as them 'not understanding', in reality, it's the kids who just don't understand.
they usually do but sometimes they dont because teens today go through things a lot earlier than they did as teens like most kids and teens are havings sex way earlier than they did the education is different and things kids do now they as teens didnt do or didnt talk about ect and mainly because kids and teens DONT talk to there parents about there problems there not mind readers they cant just predict whats bothering you
its because they were brought up in a different generation, they had tighter rules back then and they probably don't want you makin the same mistake as they did. they think they know whats best.
... it's because they keep getting their information from the same source (YOU)
lol, because their priorities are different from yours...
oookay.ummm yeppers.sooo what happened??
b/c they are mean!
