Back to My Relationships Questions
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?
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.
