My family and I: Hélène, 16 years old

My parents are divorced and I live with my mother. I see my father one week-end of two. It is not easy to live with. Besides, I don't get along very well with my mother.
We don't understand each other at all. She doesn't like the people I hang out with. She always tells me to talk to her about my problems, but when I do, she gets mad at me and we end up arguing. I don't deny that sometimes it is my fault. It's a shame because sometimes I would like to ask him questions and ask for advice. It's impossible because with her, we
can not argue. So, I started talking to my grandmother whom I admire a lot and I thought have discovered a new girlfriend! Very modern, very cool, and always ready to give me advice ... free!
