Why are kids so resistant to their parents' teaching?

Friday, October 28, 2005
Over the years my mother has tried to teach me "life"! And over the years much of it I have been so resistant to. I have a lot of my father's personality in me which is determined, somewhat stubborn, and for lack of a better word prideful b/c I want my way. I don't consider these bad traits b/c I think my father is great, but they are different traits from my mother's & what she has tried to teach me!

Mother has to be one of the most considerate women in the world...along with my Grannie. They would both walk 10,000 miles out of their way so as not to inconvenience a stranger so you can imagine what lengths they go to for those they love!
