Relationships between parents and children - Взаимоотношения родителей и детей

As for me, I get on with my parents all right. I know, that thousands of young people run away from their homes each year, because they don’t get on with their parents well. Every day I can talk with my mother (father died last week) about everything, because she is young too. And she knows my problems as well as her own. Mother always gives me necessary, correct advice. Many parents are busy, but my mother helps me at any time.

I have some friends, whose parents treat them unfairly as small children, but my mum treats me as the adult, as the equal. I clean my room myself - this doesn’t do my mother. She always says: “Go and clean your room tidy”. I consider, that my relationships with my mum are very good, which is especially rare at this time.
