Why must you put so much pressure on yourself? You are doubting yourself and constantly trying to say the right thing with a person. But you have to realize a human being is a human being. Try acting how you think fits you best in a conversation. Whatever makes you the most comfortable - not what you think makes the other person the most comfortable. If you are alright while talking to them, they will feel the same way. However, if you are uptight and thinking about the impression you are making and what you are about to say, they will know this. Just place yourself in the discussion and relax. Don't create a problem that does not exist.

Parents usually do housework better because they have spent more time doing it. Some of the tasks are dangerous, like cooking or cleaning top of the furniture, but it’s only practice. I advise to choose one day a week when everyone is obeyed to clean and for the rest of the week to make a schedule according to everyone possibilities. In conclusion, it’s a sensitive issue, but if we cooperate everyone should be able to enjoy their free time! 1. 0 1.

In the United States, it's estimated that 30 percent of adults and 66 percent of adolescents are regularly sleep-deprived. This isn't just a minor inconvenience: staying awake can cause serious bodily harm. Claudia Aguirre shows what happens to your body and brain when you skip sleep.

You learn to listen more, and talk less (talk only when necessary, if you were . I sort of chose recluse life for around 2 years. My talk was limited to lunch and dinner time to get food.

You learn to listen more, and talk less (talk only when necessary, if you were talking about me). You can differentiate between what’s necessary and what’s honestly a waste of your time. My friends would find the class boring, my parents would feel bad, my teachers wouldn't have a person to complain and above all, I wouldn't have been where I am now and wouldn't have had so many friends  .

Teenagers, especially in light of recent violent acts at schools, are in desperate need of understanding from their parents, yet many of them can’t talk about the really important issues in their lives. Why Can’t We Talk? What Teens Can’t Tell Their Parents is written for teenagers by teenagers as a tool to improve communication and understanding between teens and their parents. The heart of the book is a collection of writings from teenagers from all economic, social and ethnic backgrounds who write with heartfelt honesty about the situations in their lives that they are unable to discuss with their parents. They also share their frustrations with their parents, who are often unwilling to listen. The messages from these contributors will help teen readers realize that they are not alone in the feelings, and will offer them alternative ways to express their concerns and fears.

Each chapter contains contributions from about twenty teenagers and ends with a recap of the main concerns by Trujillo, including observations, inspirational encouragement, and suggestions and challenges for future actions. Chapters include: Understand Me; Expectations; Communication; Trust; Divorce; Acceptance; Alcohol; Drugs; Sex; Advice to Parents; and Hope.

While the book is primarily for teenagers, the hope is that teens can use the book to begin a dialog with their parents on the issues covered. Teens are encouraged to share sections that are relevant to their lives with their parents, allowing parents a window into their child’s hearts and an opening for talking with their child. For many teens, an improvement in communicating with their parents will naturally lead to healthier decision making. This book provides readers with a positive first step they can take to improve their relationships with their parents.

  • I recently bought this book, thinking that I should be supportive since I knew the lady who wrote it. I started to read just so I could say I read it. But as I got into it I found that this book was extremely unique and was very easy for me to realate to, infact for anyone to realate to. This book deals with issues that most people aren't very comfortable talking about, and you can honestly tell that everything in this book came straight from the heart. Something I found very unique and cool about this book was that after each section the author would talk to you about it and share her experiences. This book is somehting very great to have.

  • Miki's (Mrs. Trujillo's) book is required reading for parents that have or are about to have teenage children. It is very important to communicate with your children and this book helps you the parent with those skills.

  • Mrs. T is my teacher and she is a wonderful person. Her book includes something for everyone and you are sure to find something you can relate to in it. With so many stories and points of view it covers every aspect of what teens are feeling.Reading it makes you see that you are not alone and that there is always someone out there that feels the same way you do. Buy this book!
