  • Take it slow.................. maybe have them spend a few nights here and there for a while. Transition is hard for kids..................... and teens, well they have ideas of there own and need to be respected to be able to respect. One day at a time, thats all we can do. Hugs Hope it works out for you

  • dont give up! show them how much you love them know that they are children because everything you do for them know will stay in their memories in the years to come .

  • Keep trying, explain to them that parents are far from perfect. That they make mistakes also. Start it out slow. If you do give up you will regret it later.
