Were you ever mean to your parents?

Now that I am a parent, I realize now how mean I have been at times to my dad, and still am sometimes. He raised me and is only 16 years older than I am, I am 20 now and have grown up a lot, but I always found it hard to respect and listen to him because of the short age gap. He was always good to me though. I gave him hell in the teen years, and I do feel bad about it, but even now when he gives me advice, I feel like "okay what do you know dad?", you had me when you were 16! Should I feel that way? Were you ladies ever mean to your parents?

  • I was mean to my parents sometimes. My mom would sing to wake me up and I would get so mad. I remember being somewhat grumpy and unappreciative in my teen years.
