I got into all sorts of trouble when I was a teenager, but there were never any sort of consequences. I was promiscuous at a very early age, had a computer in my room that I did bad things with, I didn't care about my grades at all, got drunk almost every weekend, met with men who were 21+ years old, the list goes on. Both of my parents owned their own businesses, and were more focused on that and their adult life than me and my brother. I did some pretty crazy things (some of which they actually found out about), but never got punished. My parents pride themselves on how they raised us, but I feel a lot of resentment towards them for not bothering to actually PARENT us. They think that because I turned out ok eventually, that they must have done a good job. Whatever. I think my brother and I would have made fewer bad decisions if we thought our parents actually cared.
