I think it would be worth talking about the relationship between parents and children, especially when the children are becoming teenagers. It can be very har for parents to understand their children when the are in this weird state, were they think they are grown up but still kind of need their parents, I mean don’t get me wrong, when I was in this age, I felt the exact same way as Rachel Cusk’s daughter did.
I felt like I was all grown up now and that my parents didn’t understand me at all, when in reality they maybe did, because they ones where in the exact same position when they were young, and I’m sure at they at that time felt that their parents didn’t understand them.
