Its hard for me to tell my problem to my parents i dont know why. I easily went to my trusted friend and tell about my problem. I am scared of my parents and they did not listen to me. My friends love to help especially emotional problems. I ask this because i am curios most of my friends cannot tell their problems to their parents too.

When it problems i can say that i really cannot tell it to my parents i don't know why but when it comes to that i am not that comfortable maybe to my father i can open up but not everything because i am afraid that maybe they would get mad and won't understand me. So rather to my parents i just consult it to friends, close friends.

It would really depend upon the problem. I don't like my mother to worry so I tend to shield her from as much as possible. My dad cangive great practical advice. My friends are always there for me but at the same time I qwouldn't want to abuse that. Sometimes, I just chat away to the cat. ;-)

i easily open up to my friends. whenever i am down and i need comfort, it's my friends that i go to. especially if i need advice, i go to them and they do make pretty good advices. i really don't know why i can't open up to my parents the way i open up to my friends. there's really nothing wrong with my relationship to my parents, it's just that i am more comfortable with my friends.

I have a couple of close friends that i can go to if i need someone to talk to. I cant really talk to my parents about personal problems. There are some things i talk to them about, but mainly i talk to my close friends
