Although the title of this book indicates One parents story, struggle its actually about the battle between all parents and teens; or simply adults and teens in general. I say battle, but it has actually risen to the potential for what I call generational warfare. Basically, teenagers have little respect for adults; especially parents. The protocol is simple; and yes most adults do recall progressing strategically in the same way during their own youth. Even before were born; we make demands. Then after weve grown a few years; we make many more demands. By the age of ten to thirteen, we more than expect those demands to unquestionably be met. Finally by the last 3 to 5 years of youth while living at home with our parents; weve assessed who our biggest enemy is and how we would like to take down who we now see as both an enemy, and a dictator. Simply put: after youve bitten the hand that feeds you for so long; that hand begins to appear useless. And once that represents uselessness; the person behind that outreaching hand, also serves no purpose to you. So the stage is set. Teenagers wont look back with any sense of appreciation; and parents, who also continued to grow; will look back and wonder: was it all worth it. Many are optimistic, while others are in denial. But most can only feel one thingWhat was I thinking.
