Teen must "hate" you to be a good parent
I saw this comment somewhere else and I have heard it before and it has never made sense to me.
"If your teen does not hate you, you are not a good parent. They do not need you as a friend".
My girls (so far) have never said or acted like they hated me. They both still hug and kiss us both good night. If they are mad, we talk about it.
My almost 16 year old seemed frustrated lately and when we talked, she told me I need to let her do more things. We talked, figured it out and are both okay with some changes now. It wasn't a crying, yelling, I hate you conversation.
Any thoughts on that statement?
