  • I love my teens, but boy the terrible twos seem like a picnic now. The two's are physically exhausting, but the teens are emotionally exhausting, and the worries are so different, you can't protect them the same way you did when they were little. Love, love love my boys, and overall they're pretty good guys, but the twos were definitely easier, although I didn't know that at the time!!!

  • Each comes with a special set of issues - but I'd much rather have teenagers (which I currently have 2 of and have raised 2 thru that phase) than deal with a 2 yr old again.

  • My husband and would rather deal with the terrible 2s. We have 3 teens in our home and they are always needing to do this or that and constantly have us running.
