    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...

    I think that at this point what parents need to do is to teach their children to be good people and have deep strengths in their beliefs. After their children have learned this I think they should let them do what makes them happy. If it is good clean and wholesome, and most...
