Mature Topic You'd Want to Talk With Your Parents

Currently, a friend of mine and I are conversing on how teens are not being able to talk to parents about matured topics like kissing, relationships and sometimes, break-ups. This topics, when first hand experienced, are talked about with friends and peers but never with people like our own parents, sibs or relatives.

What's keeping us from opening these up to our parents anyways?

If you had your say, which "mature" topic would you like to tackle with them?

Re: Mature Topic You'd Want to Talk With Your Parents

I would like to talk about homosexuality with them. Not like I didn't try but it's a fruitless battle, they always think they're right and I'm too young to know. They don't understand that the knowledge of certain things is not determined by age.

And the reason why teens would rather seek advice from peers instead of parents because most parents jump straight to scolding without even listening to the full story first. And again if they listen to the full story, they would try to control the situation and made their child do things their way instead of helping them or giving them solid advices. Not that parents are not right in their decision making, they are just not helping their child the way the child wants.

Like most children would say, "My parents never listen to me."

I relate to this. Not so long ago, I tried to talk to my parents about love and well about the things I like about my gay friends. And they-just like you said- jumped to conclusions.

Conclusions without really any basis and all so theoretical.

I also said they wouldn't listen to me. But when I got older..like now, I reflect on all those convo's and well, come to think of it, I was the one not listening.lol

They were right. But at the time, I did not want to acknowledge it because I wanted proof for myself. I got it.. and on some topics, I really hope I just listened or took time to open up.

Re: Mature Topic You'd Want to Talk With Your Parents

Frankly speaking, I never talk much about 'mature' topic with parents...
More to talk to such with siblings or good friends instead...

Probably parents are older and with older mindset, while siblings and good friends are around my age... So they will know/understand more...
