  • It is important that you do not let hear you talk about your issues with other neighbors, women etc. I stopped doing that and things are so much better with my son.

  • i dont really understand what dead animals and jail shows have to do with this...if my child asked me what age they could move out i would say when they are finished with school and can buy a car and have a job to pay for their own place to live.

  • Hang in there. Hope she finds something to positively inspire her that you can encourage her in. It's a hard age sometimes and I think they do things just to test our reactions. Best wishes!
