          For Teens: How Well Do You Know Your Parent(s)?

          January 23, 2003

          If your parents don’t know what makes you happy or sad or excited, if you don’t care about their feelings or their happiness, there is no emotional bond between you. The questions below address how much you know about your parent(s). They can be answered with either “yes” or “no.” Make sure you can truly answer each question if you are going to write “yes.” Often people assume they know the answer, but when pressed, they really do not.
