when your a teenager your starting to have more responsiblities. one of these is making some of your own decisions. parents arent always right and sometimes its necessary to go against their rules. and personally im insulted that you think we dont know anything. todays youth is smarter than todays adults ever will be what with the larger amount of knowledge and technology.
