For me, i do enjoy to talk to my parents as i talk to my close friends. I really like to ask them and discuss many things about my experiences, my study, plans, or anything else. They are close to me and always give me a good advise. For me, my parents are more than friends to me, because they always by my side. I do talk to them many things about life, my problems with friends, school, etc... I am grateful that i have "non-conservative" parents, because they always give me freedom to choose the best for my future and let me to be responsible for my choices. They always support me, especially when I'm feeling down. My father is also the best joker for me, he always finds the way to relieve my sadness and sorry for my mistakes and failing things. How about you, do you enjoy talk to your parents as you talk to your close friends? Or you prefer to talk to your friends than your parents? Why?

Honestly, the relationship between me and my parents is rather undetermined. Sometimes, we get well together and there are other times when I really don't like them. They are a bit conservative and I have a problem with that. My mother likes to talk to me as if I'm a baby. That's one of the reasons why I always push her away. Probably, this one of the reasons why I don't like talking to her. I don't like being treated like a baby. I enjoy my conversations with friends, naturally. I hope my parents would be like your's.

I was always close to my mom and could tell her anything. we were mom and daughter and also good friends. I never had a lot of friends just two or three really best friends but my mom was who I went to for just anything. I was never very close to my dad, he was very strict and forbiddine.also he molested me just once when I was seven and I learnedto stay far away from him. No parent should ever do that to his or her child it is betraying the innocence of a child to serve an evil lust of an adult. I have now forgiven him but no I have not forgotten not at all.

I do talk to my mom like we are friends. But only when I am already a grown up. During my growing up years, I am not that at ease telling her everything about life. Now, we can just laugh it off.

i like talking to my mom more than my friends. though sometimes my mom would have really out of hand comments, and can be too negative at some of my plans, i still appreciate her listening or talking to me more than anyone else. i value her concern for me and she does make me feel comfortable talking with her. :)

I don't talk very much with my parents.Because i think there is a generation gap between they and me. If there is a problem i'd rather solve it all by myself.If i cant handle, maybe then i would turn to my parents for help.and i'd like much more to share my little secrets with my close friends than with my parents.

I enjoy every conversation that I can have with my parents. The older they get the more you want to talk and spend time with them. But I was always the type that enjoyed the time I had with my parents.
