I fought with my parents but the issues are far beyond than them taking my phone away. </span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClass1E6A264BF8FB411F8297651DAE7B0466"><p>​You are very wise to reach out for help in managing your emotions. It sounds like you and your parents have had a challenging night. It can be upsetting when you don't get along and are not seeing eye to eye on things. In addition to this you are probably feeling vulnerable with the loss of your phone which for many people is a link to friends and support.</p><p> Now might be the time to sit down and journal out all that you have been feeling. Try these journal pages: <a href="/JournalPages/Brain-Dump.pdf">Brain Dump</a> or <a href="/JournalPages/How-Does-It-Make-You-Feel.pdf?Topic=Family">How Does It Make You Feel</a>. Sometimes just identifying and releasing the emotions that you are feeling is healing. Sometimes you need more than just journaling, during those times it might be helpful to talk. Our counselors are available 24/7 and ready to talk anytime you are. Call 1-800-448-3000 or TEXT VOICE to 20121. We want to help you through this time.</p><p> We hope that you and your parents will get to a point that you will be able to mend your relationship, if you feel that you are nearing this time, some of these tips may be helpful:</p><ul><li><a href="/Pages/Build-a-Bridge-Not-a-Wall.aspx?Topic=Family">Build A Bridge, Not A Wall</a></li><li><a href="/Pages/Chain-Reaction.aspx?Topic=Family">Chain Reaction</a></li><li><a href="/Pages/When-Anger-Comes-Between-You.aspx?Topic=Family">When Anger Comes Between You</a></li></ul><p>Remember, you don't have to keep this in, we are here for you.</p><p>​Nikki, Counselor<br></p></div>18
