WHAT DO YOU ARGUE ABOUT AT HOME?
Andy. My mum’s a bit irritating. I mean, I’m nearly sixteen and she won’t let me an earring. We argue about homework and she makes me go to extra classes after school. When she goes out, I can’t use the computer because she won't tell me the passport.
Jessica. I live my mum but we a lot these days. She say I’m always late but I’m not. And she says it’s my fault our phone bills are so big! She gets angry when I fail school exams. She say I don’t make an effort some subjects but I do my best — most of the time!
Edward. My dad can be so embarrassing. When my friends come round, he tries to be ‘funny’. We don’t argue much but he makes a fuss about my room. I know where to find everything but he says it’s untidy. He makes me tidy at weekends.
Susan. I m very proud of him. He’s very creative and he does well at school but he’s a bit lazy about doing his homework — he prefers playing computer games! He can be stubborn, too and hates it when people tell him what to do. He wants an earring but I think I’ll make him wait until he’s eighteen.
Karen. She makes friends easily. She's very outgoing, like me and loves to chat with her friends — she spends hours on the phone! I let her out at weekends but she sometimes forgets to ring me up when she’s late. She’s a bit moody, too, especially in the morning. I was exactly the same at her age.
George. We like a lot of the same music and films. I think there’s less of a generation gap these days. Of course, he’ annoying sometimes, that’s only natural! His room is a disaster zone. He won’t make his bed and he makes a moss in the living room, too. He never offers to do the washing up — I have to make him do it!
