My parents understand that I just wanted to be independent.  That I wanted to do things myself and when I was refusing to let them help me, it wasn’t  because I didn’t want them to help me, it was because I just wanted to do it myself.  And, I think they all need to understand that there’s a lot going on; it’s really overwhelming.  And, if their child is lashing out at them, it’s because they know that their parents aren’t probably going to leave them.  So, just to be understanding and know that they’re probably  going to take the brunt of the frustration, and anything else that’s going on, but that it wouldn’t be that way if they weren’t close to their child.
