Very true. I get told you're a "grown up" 10 mins later "You're just a Kid" im totally keeping this in mind for when i have kids--- I feel the same way, my parents are like: omg you're such a teenager yet they greet my like a 5 year old
As a teenager, I am told to start acting and speaking like an adult. However, when I voice my opinions, I am told that I am too young to be talking about "these issues". Remember parents you are raising adults not children.
Many of us find it hard to communicate effectively with our teenagers. Most of the time misunderstandings lead to poor communication. Changing how we think can lead to better conversation with your teens.
