  • LOL!!! I totally hear you!!! We have 10 kids, only one is left at home, well sorta! The one left at home is the easiest one, the grown ones are the ones who drive us absolutely nuts! PM me, it sounds like we have alot in common.....just the fact that our grown kids are driving us insane!! LOL

  • You have to let go,let them grow and learn from their experiences and mistakes. You can love them unconditionally,but,they need to cut those apron strings a bit. :))

  • I do have a 20 year old so I do think I know what you doesn't end when they grow up or even when they move out of the house. Since you still love them and care about them it is hard to see them make mistakes and it can drive you crazy! It is hard being a parent and I don't think that ever ends.

  • I am a mother of 4, 2 girls and 2 boys. My 2 daughters don't live at home anymore, and they r the ones that drive me nuts too. My oldest is a helicopter mechanic in the army, and is still trying to figure out what she wants out of life, she is soon to be 24. Then there is my soon to be 20 year old daughter, and she is still trying to figure out what life is. They both chose to get married and have kids at such young ages. They r so much alike, that they can't see the forest for the trees. They both want to complain about each other to me and my husband, but the both do almost the same things, and r still making similar mistakes. It just makes me think back to when I went thru all of that and I try to help when I can, but most of it they have to learn thru it on there own. I doesn't really matter how much it drives me nuts about it, the still have to go thru it, in order to learn from it. All u can do is relax and enjoy them.
