You've been away at boarding school and it's time for break. You might feel really excited and can't wait to get home, or you might be glad to be getting a break from schoolwork, Chapel and your roommate, but not so happy about leaving behind your friends and independence. After you have been managing your own life at school, it can feel strange to get back to family rules and expectations. Life at home can feel different when you've been away. Maybe your younger siblings are not only taller than when you left, but have taken over part of your room or are wearing your clothes that you left behind!
While at school, you've been in charge of your social life and free time and it can be hard to all of a sudden feel like your parents have planned your time for you, especially if you want to just decompress and do nothing!
