Let them do their job

I have to tell you guys parents are not as heartless as they seem. Think about it, if you did something bad and your parents lost the plot over it, well, how would you react if it was someone who you have an obligation to, to ensure their well being. No one ever wastes their breath on a person if they don't care about them!

    i hate to admit it but what u say is totally true. some parents are abit over the top though.

    must be strange looking at a person knowing it is your child and that they wouldnt be alive without you cos you made em. all abit wierd too me! ne1 understand what im getting at? i wouldnt know cos i havnt got kids but im sure those who have would agree?

    parents obviously want the best for thier kids so they look out for them- so dont give em such a hard time! <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    i understand that. but what about those parents who are over protective. i know there only trying to do what they think is right but maybe they should start to see it from their son/daughters point of view aswell.

    my mates mum is over protective and it really upsets her, but her mum just doesn't seem to understand

    it is annoying to have overprotective parents. my mates parents are very overprotective as well,but thats cos her sister has died recently so they are very protective over her now cos shes their only daughter left.

    sometimes there over protective cos they remember what they were like at that age and dont want their children to be like it. they should try and see it from the kids point of view as well though. they brought us into the world so they should have the decency to let us live our own lives! <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    i think my parents r amazing.. ive been thru a lot when i was younger (18 now).. had some really difficult times to cope with, none i feel the need to mention but they were serious situations nonetheless... theyve been with me all the way n shown love n respect.. they were never overprotective n have brought me up in a really gd way.. n jus recently ive found myself havin some really deep n meaningful conversations with my mum about almost anything affectin me in my life, be it girls, social, school.. almost anything, u jus need to trust ur parents judgement, n once u learn to do that, ull respect them for what they do n theyll respect u

    Look towards the left of the screen, you may notice my catchphrase 'life is life.' I say that because i am a realistic person. i know it does irritate you when parents are being overprotective or just plain assholes, heck i should know having the latter. i say just go with the flow and take it as it comes, but bear in mind that they do care about you! As for parents looking at their children as their creation, well that's not the case...they look upon you as blessed things, which they have had the privilege to love and raise. (for most people anyway). Oh, by the way you have plenty of time to get on with your own lives, unless of course your planning on going somewhere soon?

    what you say is true but i suppose it depends what type of parents you have as well. true 'life is life', just take it as it comes. we cant choose our parents so we have to cope with the ones weve got. they do care about you no matter what they say. it must be hard for them as well, bringing up a child and trying their best to support it etc.

    yes it does depend on the type of parents...and my sympathies are with those who genuinley have bad parents.

    i always remember when i was ickle and probably being a really bastard little brat, and my mum took a firm hand (which i hated at the time - who didn't) and whenever i compalined she said 'you'll thank me one day'. and she was right. i'm now 18, almost finished the first year of uni, and if i think of the people i went to school with, who i used to envy coz their parents let them do anything, i realise that they are worse off than me, because i had discipline, with became self-discipline drilled into me from an early age. they're in prison or have shit go-nowhere jobs and kids etc, so i DO thank my mum for it, and if i ever have kids i shall do the same with them, coz i know that they may hate it at the time, but they'll thank me one day <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
