I want to convince my
parents that I can hang out with guys and girls and have a boyfriend, but any
time I mention this, they get mad. My guy friends are like brothers to me, but
my parents always assume that they are my boyfriends, which they aren't. Any
Dear Talking about Boys
If you don't have a BF,
why stress your parents out over this? Can't you wait until it is more of an
issue? It's great to have friends, male and female, so for now, instead of
arguing, "I'm old enough to have a BF!" just say, "Mom, Dad,
relax. No worries. We're really all just friends."
You could also invite
the gang over to your place every once in a while. That way, Mom and Dad can
see there's nothing to fret over.
SERIOUS STUFF? For serious
issues, don’t wait. Visit our HELP! page now.
