I know that I could be very handful sometimes, moody, and a bit weird for my age,.. and my parents always disagrees with my attitudes towards my life... and so happens that i never listen to them when they are mad because of me,... but i am still very thankful that they never left me despite the fact that I'm a very hard headed person,.. I wish that I have listened to them when I had chosen my so called "friends",.. I thought my parents didn't really cared for me so I searched for a Shoulder to lean on but I was wrong with that certain person and now she's saying so many bad things about me... when they first saw this "friend" of mine they already disagree because this girl is a bad example for me.. well I'm not really that bad,.. a bit crazy yes,.. but this girl she's teaching me some bad vices and my parents disapproves with her.. but I didn't listened so stupid of me,.. but now I am very thankful because when I finally realized my mistakes they were so happy about it and now I'm trying to change for the better.. thank you parents... :)

I went through this same situation when I was in high school. I had a "friend" who my parents warned me was no good but I would not listen. I have come to realize that true friends are few and far between. We should treasure the ones we do have. When I was 16 I thought my mom had no idea what she was talking about. Now at age 26 I realize she is very wise.

If i ever listened to my parent's i would literally be in a mental hospital. My mum is a worrier, she panicks all the time, and used to treat me like a child even when i was in my 20's. It was really embarrassing, and the things she would tell me etc was like too young for my age group and getting me to do silly baby things, and thought i was immature all the time, and dumb etc, but i would always get B's and C's at school and a few A's also, but my mother always put me down, which i hated. SO i never listened to my mother which is a good thing.

To be truthfully honest I hated my parents before because I thought that they were just selfish and all and they don't want us to be happy,.. they deprived us from things which we like, and I started rebelling, and I started to drop my subjects because of that... but now I just realized that these things that we weren't able to posses are just things that could only make us happy for a while.. And that they are right. and they just want to protect us,... I've thought of so many wrong things towards my parents but now I'm trying to change for the better

It depends what is your age. When I was 16-18 years old, I was constantly auguing with them. I wanted to do things and they won't let me do it. I wanted to go somewhere with my friends but they don't let me. Now that I got a bit older, I just laugh at myself how silly I was. What they wanted is the best for me but most teenagers don't think ahead and about the consequences. I noticed that when I grew older, I start to think like my parents. But do know that everyone makes mistakes and the important thing is to know that it was wrong and to never do the same thing again. Some people don't even realize it is wrong and they go so deep in it till i's too late. I wish you the best and wisdom. Goodluck
