Gil’s Tips for Swimming Rough Waters
Sometimes it can be treacherous swimming the rough surf between parents and significant others who don’t see eye to eye. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find a way to make it work. Here are just a few tips for navigating this murky situation:
1. You may not agree with your parents, but they still deserve your respect. If they can’t see how fintastic your ghoulfriend/boyfriend is, try explaining all of the reasons why you like the other person.
2. Invite your ghoulfriend/boyfriend over for some quality family time. If your parents can see what you see, perhaps they’ll come around.
3. Always keep the lines of communication open. Always be as honest with your parents and your significant other as possible. And remember, always Be Yourself. Be Unique. Be a Monster!
