  • Drop out of school... I got my GED but I wish I went to college.

  • I agree with not dropping out, and also not having sex so young.

  • The only "bad" thing I did was get pregnant, but I still graduated high school and in the top 10% of my class. I didn't do any drugs, I didn't sneak out of the house, I didn't skip class. I took honor and AP classes, I was on the debate team and in several extra curriculars. If my child ends up being just like I was as a teenager, then I would be happy. Now, if he turned out like his father, that would be a totally different story. I didn't know my husband when he was a teenager but based on stories, he was the kind of guy I didn't associate with.

  • Go skateboarding drunk with friends, and order a six foot sub with mom's credit card. Didn't blow over so well.

  • I hope that my kids do the exact opposite of everything I did as a kid. I drank and smoked pot.

  • Have a child, have sex with someone you don't care about, go with the flow, or going along for the ride...
