  • I don't think about the future too much. We work on today, and hopefully by leading them in the right direction now, they will be in a good spot when they grow up. I can't control who their friends are, too much. I can't control their driving and where they work. I can't force them to do well in school. I hope that I can teach them to do good and be good people when they grow up.

  • Lots of things!! I try not to worry because I think we are doing an awesome job as parents, but really I just remember my teen years. Influences in school, boys, parties, driving, drinking, drugs.. not that I did all of these things but the temptation was always there. *I made some pretty smart decisions back then, and some that werent very smart (which I believe is normal).. if she was anything like I was then i'd be comfortable with that =)

  • Honestly, I am scared to death that my daughters will be like I was when I was a teenager. I am doing everything I can to make sure that they don't make many of the same mistakes that I did.
