A guide on how to get along with your mum and dad.
Ok being a teenager can be really hard, i know this.
If you get on good terms with your mum and dad you can actually manipulate them for anything.Just try to help around the house and be a nice person in general. Dont wait to be asked to do the dishes , just do them . This will make your parents quite proud of you , even though it is such a minor task . If you do happen to do something wrong , dont go off in a mood , dont talk back , no cheeky comments! If your parents are shouting and you dont shout back , this will only make things worse, just accept the punishment with as little said as possible . If perhaps you didnt do nothing wrong and your mum is just in a bad mood . say to her ” Ok look im sorry , do you want me to put on a cup of tea etc..” If you are trying to be aloud to stay out later , just ask your parents to allow you to stay out for 10 minutes later . I know this doesnt seem like a long time , but gradually as you start to respect your parent more and vice-versa they will have more trust in you. That is they key component in a Child-Parent Relationship , TRUST!
