It’s easy to disagree with parents or carers, if they don’t understand you, won’t listen to you, or make decisions for you that you don’t want.
They often think they know what is best for you and what will make you the safest and happiest. They aren’t always right and they don’t always know the full story.
They may be worried about you or your choices and it doesn’t come across well to you when they tell you. Most people argue sometimes and it’s ok not to get on with everyone, but it’s not great if it feels like you’re always fighting or getting into trouble.
Talking is good, and helps them to know how you feel and what you want. If you can’t tell them, can you write to them? Can you send them a message or ask someone else to tell them? Runaway Helpline can help if it is too hard to explain yourself.
The Runaway Helpline can only provide services to children and young people within the United Kingdom, and information and advice on this site relates to the UK only.I understand
