Mom. Dad. Leave Me Alone!
Have no fear, college is almost here! If you’re fresh out of high school and starting college soon, we’re sure by now your parents are driving you crazy. You, their baby, is going off to school soon, so they are trying to spend as much time as possible with you. Yes we know this is totally ruining your summer of fun, but think about how your parents feel. Whether you’re the eldest or the youngest child, their nest is about to feel empty. So to help you with your "smothering parent blues," try watching the Disney movie College Road Trip starring Raven Symone and Martin Lawrence.
The movie portrays the rough relationship between a teenage girl preparing to go off to school and her father who has to learn to accept the fact that his daughter is no longer a child. It’s funny and lighthearted. We suggest watching it with your mom or dad; it just might help in building a stronger parent-child relationship.
