by Donna J. Jodhan

It appears that these days, whenever our youngsters find themselves in conflict with their parents, they resort to this statement. Gone are the days when kids listened, learned, and obeyed. They have now been replaced with this statement.

Of course, there are always two sides to any picture, plus the inbetween side which often serves as the real version. However, this statement is troublesome and needs to be really understood from the view of our kids.

As someone without any kids, I am left on the sidelines to listen, observe, and to try to understand. I cannot put myself in the shoes of our kids, nor can I do this as a parent, but it must be frustrating for both sides.

On the one hand, we have kids who honestly believe that the best alternative for them is to call the police whenever they have a disagreement with their parents, and on the other side, we have parents who are really trying to do the best that they can for their young ones.

Could it be that we need to have more meaningful communication, compromise, and a willingness to get along rather than engaging in confrontation? Are our kids being more influenced by their peers rather than by their parents and adults? Just food for thought!

Just my two cents for today.
