Adolescence is a very trying time for young people. They feel hurt, misunderstood, betrayed and angry at the world. Parental expectations regarding academics and relationships just add fuel to the fire. Often these parent-child conflicts exacerbate the situation. The constant need to please one’s parents with high grades and stellar careers can be too much for a young adult. Around this time, romantic relationships also start and become another breeding ground for conflict. Battles ensue regarding suitable “mates” and “potential spouses”. In the end, parents and young adults can be left feeling angry and betrayed.
