Some people find it hard to express their feelings. For me, it’s normally when I don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings or offend them when we’re talking about a certain subject or were in a certain situation.

15. Should teens be allowed to get plastic surgery without parental consent? This is a tough question. On one hand, the surgery might be pointless and in spur of the moment because the teen wants to look “perfect”. Some parents really do want the best for their kids and they know whether a certain surgery is necessary or not.
