Troubled in Truro
My parents don’t approve of the crowd I hang with and told me to stay away. My friends want me to lie to my parents about where I am and who I’m hanging with. What should I do?

Dear Troubled in Truro
I love this one because, if your friends want you to lie to your parents, you can bet they are lying to your face, too. Don’t allow your friends to put you in a position where you have to choose your parents over your friends. Sit down and communicate with your parents and listen to what they have to say. See what they see. Yeah, I know parents sometimes step on our toes, but in the end, they really want to guide us in life, not mislead us.
