It makes me think about the relationship kids and teenagers go through with their parents, especially ones that are strict like mine, and how hard a relationship with your parents is during those years.
My relationship became good when I went to college and moved out. I was never very good at following rules so it was better that I didn’t live there.
As I look back, I see how my students act in my school and I can see my old point of view on why I was defiant. Then I think of my relationship and how it would be with my daughter and I was wonder, will she give me as hard of a time as I gave my parents?
I hope to be like my parents. I now realize they did a good job at what they were trying to do whereas when I was growing up I thought they were doing a horrible job.
What did I know when I was a teenager ?!
