  • I don't have a teenager yet, but I have a 9 year old sister who talks to everyone like she's just so much smarter than they are. It gets old after a while. I'm not looking forward to my own kid's teenage years.

  • I have an 18 year old daughter, and that sweet little ballerina is now a nasty mean girl. It's like she has no common sense, and when I try to tell her something, I'm interfering because she's an adult now. I remind her she is still under my roof, but then she threatens to leave, and I can't even think of her handling her self out in the world. It is a constant worry. Wish I could help, but I can say you are not alone!!!

  • I have recently witnessed a few key instances where my 16 year old got in the real world and realized...she doesn't. There's nothing like a little life experience to make the light bulb go off!

  • Welcome to what I like to call dramaville!! I went through the last 2 years being the stupidest people on the planet!! It can be very difficult, to say the least. But we, my 17 yo dd and I, have come to a place were we understand each other more. It wasn't easy. But I try, Lord do I try, to understand her "side" of things as long as she tries to understand mine. It took a long time with a lot of conversations, open and honest, and very hard conversations. But I see the exit of dramaville in the near future. Just in time for her 13 yo sister it enter!!
    But you are not alone!!! By no means!!

  • I'm not there yet but when I am I intend to actually listen to my kid. I hate the attitude that teens are just know-it-alls who actually know nothing. There are lots of smart teens out there and many of them are smarter than their parents. I knew as a teen that I was smarter than my mother and I still am. I know there are ways that my son is smarter than me and he's only 4. He's very good at identifying skulls and he's good at fixing a skipping DVD so if the DVD is jumping I just give him the remote.
