I don't know how to set up my profile or even check other ppl's profile yet. I'm a newbie. I'm from Texas with a 15 year old daughter (soon this month) a 14 year old son and a almost 7 year old son! My middle son is very troubled and causes trouble while my almost 7 is trying to be just like him. I'm here to get advice with different questions I have and offer advice on things I know. I wish to make this as special as my facebook page but with people I don't know who are going through like situations. So I'll start off with my first 2 questions. Where are you from and why are you here?

Welcome! I'm from Cleveland, and have a 14 year old daughter, and 9 year old son.

My daughter has some special needs - learning disability, ADD, and an anxiety disorder. It's nice when I occasionally "meet" other moms on here who have kids with special needs. I love my daughter just the way she is, but have to admit that sometimes it can be hard reading posts from all the other moms who have "perfect" kids - the ones that get straight A's, are in all honors/AP classes, are star athletes, etc. It's hard to feel like I "fit in" here when I read that.

 Hi,

I am from Atlanta.  I have 2 kids - a daughter 17 and a son 15 and am divorced.

My daughter is gay and my son is bi-polar and has severe ADHD. 

Sometimes I just need to vent, ask questions and read other posts - just to know that I'm not the only one out there with issues.

Nice to meet you! Well we will fit together. I love my son as well. From the time he was 2 he has had anger/bipolar actions, considered adhd/odd. Its a very hard life as a parent. I'm only here to be around moms much like yourself. I'd like to hear what works for them and try my hardest to fix what I can in this very broken relationship with my 14 y/o son. If I can help with what I've been through I will. Nice to meet you!!!

I'm with you in that respect Pinkie. Our dd's sound very similar and I know we've discussed it. It is hard for me to feel like I fit in with the perfect moms whose kids would never... I consider them lucky to not have had to deal with a child whose anxiety made them so physically ill they couldn't leave the house. But I am a good mom, as are you and we do right by our children too.

I live in Wisconsin.  I am from Indianapolis.  I have moved 9 times in 27 years of marriage with transfers with dh's job.  I have 2 girls ages 21 and 18.  I have been on this board for almost 5 years now as well as many other board on cafemom.  I have lived in Atlanta, Cleveland, Rome GA, Chapel Hill, NC, Greenville, SC, Syracuse, NY, Albany, NY, and Florence Italy before.  Its a great board here whether your teens are great kids or have issues and to vent or ask questions.  With Mom's of all age kids someone has been through what you are experiencing.
