In the movie, Big FIsh...
Do you think you are like your parents in someways why or why not?
When it comes to my mom, I have her features from the nose on down. When it comes to personality, my mom is always going out of her way to help people, which is what I aim to do. We have the same warped sense of humor. We can literally laugh so hard that we have tears streaming down our faces. My mom is like everyone's mother. If anyone needs anything she is always there to help if she can. I try to be that way too. My mom and I can talk about anything and she is my best friend.

Thesis: Parenting is the toughest role you will ever play.
-For a teenager, i believe the role the parents have to take on would be to REMIND them that they KNOW right from wrong, to take responsibility for their actions, to have open communication and let them know they can talk to you about anything, no matter how old they think they are parents need to check up on their teenagers, because they do like to bend the truth. A parents job is to raise their teenager into morally, responsible adults.
-For an adult, i believe that the role of the parent is to have given a good foundation for their adult child to be productive members of society. To know that good morals, respect, love, and kindness are the seeds for any of the 3 categories.
