We aren't trying to understand our teens, befriend them, or make their lives easier. We are trying to PARENT them. Sometimes, it takes thinking like an adult, not a teen...being kinda mean, and purposely making their lives hard so they will strive for the high road. We don't really need you to explain their thinking. We were there once...we need advice from others who are where we are now...

If I wanted advice on dealing with my 17 year old, I would want advice from both sides of the fence. I would consider myself better informed that way.
I see far too many moms trying to control every aspect of their teens lives and then wonder why they are having problems with their teen. The teen years are a journey of self discovery and they need the freedom to make some of their own decisions within reasonable boundaries.
