  • Huh? Is that suppose to be a riddle or a rhetorical question?

  • Could it be because you love that teenager as fiercely as you did when that teen was an infant in your arms? Can you look at that kid that pisses you off so badly and remember the way his/her head smelled when they were 4 mos old and just had a bath? Maybe you did exactly what that kid is doing and you know how those choices impacted your life? Do you wish to spare that kid the pain? Maybe, just maybe, it's because you are that kids Mom and that's what us Moms do for our children. Good luck. :)

  • because you wants whats best for your child at any sacrifice, be it dignity, thruth justice or the american way. Disrespectful, selfish, liein, uninformed, unaware, and blind to the facts as they maybe we hang in their cause we want to guide and protect them. And thats where gray hair comes from too. I'm in it for the long haul too. You are not alone.
