parents are you experiencing ...?

Parental hair that's going grey early? Going viral about internet worries? Tired of hearing, “You’re the worst parent in the world.”  Then followed by a loving smile and a “Can I have $20 for movie and popcorn?”

 “That’s it! You’re grounded for the next two months.” 


Unfair curfew restrictions? Has your parents’ loss of trust for past behavior led to unfair grounding schedules?

Teens are you experiencing ...?

"Whats your grandfather going to think of you?"

Do you have a different religious practice?

Do you want to get a job?

Are you expected to share your financial earnings with your parents?

Are you gay?


Lesbian …and afraid to open this issue up with your parents?
