Lets play a game.
The FIRST power you get is the power you have in a zombie apocalypse.

Which doesn’t mean that you should brush off everything your parents say which you don’t agree with as unimportant or ‘not what [you] need right now’, I should like to add, because that’s a load of bollocks which has unfortunately become a trend.
Parents (almost) universally want what’s best for their children - because that’s what love is. However, they don’t always know what’s best - because that’s what being human is. Of course, the same goes for children; neither position comes with a manual that explains what’s actually best, so we’re all just left to guess and hope we guess right. Occasionally that means we’re going to disagree.
What we all need to realise (and this applies to more than just parenting) is that a difference of opinion is not an obstacle or a threat, but an opportunity - if we always agreed with each other we’d never learn anything new, and by talking through our disagreements we all stand to learn something. I know it seems clichéd to say parents and children need to talk more, but communication really is the most powerful tool that human beings have access to, and it’s a pity that we’re often so reluctant to use it. Parenting (and growing up, for that matter) certainly isn’t easy, and if you’ve got access to a tool like that you really ought to be using it…
