    All my parents do is yell and gang up on me! i make great grades and i am a smart girl so i really don't understand. they call me a bitch and an ass and sometimes things even worse and i dont know what to do! If I make a small mistake they will yell at me and curse me out. THey say I should honor and obey my parents but what if your parents aren't right and you know that it's not right for them to treat you this way. they did this to both of my sisters and they call our generation lazy but i think they like to slave drive us and that's why THEY ran away and when i turn 18 i might do the same.?
