    RaShea I'd love to help. 1) my parents try to be supportive of me and my goals, but also try to keep me from putting too much stress on myself. 2) sometimes I wish that they would be a little more tolerant of my ideas and activities that I do. I also wish they would have put...

    The wisdom and energy of youth is always welcomeed in my field. Ofte their views are prejudiced by life's experiences. They have to look at the purity of reason. They are a great bunch. Will all make fine pyschologists some daY.

    Questions That I Asked the Youth of Today

    I want to know from you, what you would have your parents do differently, what type of parent you want to be and finally, what we as parents can do to insure you have what you need to not only survive in this world but to spread your wings and fly.

    1) what you like about your parents What I like about my parents is that, whenever there's a problem in the family, like if we're low on money, they let me know. Like, they don't over-protect me from real life. Sometimes I do wish I were a little kid again, because being innocent...
