I just became a parent 18 months ago. It tends to change your perspective on things... As well as make you worry about a hell of a whole lot.
Most of the parents I've met, people just want to provide the best for their kids and make them happy. Now, everyone's got their own ideas at how to attain that happiness, myself included, but I can safely say that the majority of parents would agree that happiness is what they ultimately want for their kids.
Hannah screenshotted the supportive Snapchat message from her mother. It's no secret that teenagers undergo a lot of pressure. From hormonal changes, to stressing about which college they're going to get into, it's a pretty crazy time. Hell, the only way I'd ever want to go back and relive my teens is if I knew what I knew now. And even then, I'd have to think twice about it.
BTW... I DONT have less than a 2.0 GPA.. I try hard in school and we both value education. she's just saying everything hypothetically— hannah (@imhannahcho) March 20, 2017
And maybe valuing education comes easier to someone who doesn't treat it like a miserable chore. Just a thought.
