When Parents Change the Rules
About the Guest
You thought you knew what was expected but now you don't. Your parents read a good book or they go to a parenting class and they change their expectations. Then there are the parent-stepparent changes. For years you could be sarcastic with your brothers and then a stepparent enters the scene and takes it personally when you're sarcastic with your stepbrother. It's a pain. And it would help if they wouldn't take things quite so personally, but maybe you're going to have to stop being sarcastic.
Hey kids, isn’t it annoying when parents change the rules!
