Dear BeingGirl Experts,

My question has to do with my relationship with my parents. They think they know who I am but they don't. I can't stand the thought of letting them down. I want to be myself, but I can't with them because they don't approve. What can I do?

Dear Mona,

Teens separate from their parents by beginning to lead their own lives. Chances are as long as you are responsible, honest, and law abiding, your parents are not going to have a problem with this. Your parents went through the same struggle for independence!

 

Share your thoughts in small stages. This can be done little by little in conversation with your parents. You know them best and will know what they can handle and when it is appropriate. Let them know you are going to act in ways in line with your family values.

 

Good luck,

Your BeingGirl Experts

Yeah. I agree countrygirl321 and 18Sinesyd. You guys r totally right. I mean that was just rude! I mean you're sounding like a conceited person, and that's not very look. I'm not being a so-called "hater" o whatever. But that can make girls feel bad about themselves. So plz don't do that.

alot of times we're scared to be our selves because we are worried about what OTHERS will think..so we try to fit in and forget who we really are. So forget what other people think! No, not everyone is going to like you, but at least the friends you have will love you for who you are and not who you want them to see :)
