Why Couldn't You Be Different?
rating: 0+x

Basic Information

Why Couldn't You Be Different describes a character who somehow differs from what his parents wanted - and the parents let him know that. Maybe the child was born deformed, maybe it has the wrong gender, or perhaps it has supernatural powers - or doesn't have them if its parents do. Or maybe the child has simply developed a totally different personality than what the parents expected. Whatever the cause, this difference between expectation and reality is a constant source of friction between parents and child.
