  • My kids are very little, but I am DREADING teenagers. DREADING. I was a good kid, but my brother and sisters all were awful teens and did/do horrible things, made very bad choices. I'm scared I won't be able to keep my kids from doing the same :(

  • I loved when my sons were teens. They were all very easygoing kids, never in any trouble, always understood the rules, etc.. They made parenting them easy. Now they are all adults and we have a very cclose relationship with them all.

  • I love teenagers too.  My favorite parenting stages were babies and teenagers, everything else in between was tough.

  • I love my children. At 13, 15, 21, and 21.....they are great! Christmas with teenagers can be fantastic. Mine spend time helping out at church, serving at our local soup kitchen, and going through their clothes for things they no longer wear that are in good condition for those that need clothes.

  • I have 3 teens right now and I love them, too. At this time of year, they can't decide if they're 16 or 6, 18 or 8,but I don't mind.

  • You are a lucky mom. My teens drove me crazy! It did get better though. I am so glad I didn't kill them when they were teenagers.
