Did you ever...

do things as a teenager that you would be mortified of if your child does? Or were you a perfect child? Hahaha.

Elaborate!

  • LOL - YES, there are a lot of things that I did as a teenager that I would kill my kids if they did them. (I do have two teens, so...) They know about a lot of them, but they don't know about all of them. BUT - as I tell them, yes, I did stuff I wasn't supposed to do, but some of them came back and bit me in the butt, and some of them, if I had gotten caught, I would have gotten in trouble. Hopefully, they're smarter than I was in that they don't do some of the same things, and, if they do something that they aren't supposed to be doing and they get caught, they'll get in trouble.

    I also remind them that they have the mixed blessing of having a mom that's more involved and cares more about what's going on in their lives than I had, so the likelihood of getting caught is higher ;-) They also know though, that there's a lot of "upsides" to me caring more - so it's all good :-)
