Relatable Teen Poems About Growing Up
Every family has hopes and aspirations for their children. Some may long to send their children to college if the parents have not had that opportunity. Others may aspire for a better life in another country. Sometimes there are conflicts between the dreams of the parents and the dreams of their children.

This can be heartbreaking for the parents who may think that they have labored in vain, and stressful for the children who have their own dream to live out.
