My goal with teenagers

 I would love to lay out my goals and see what others think and what their goals are.

Goals for what I want from my teenagers:

I want arguements about who gets to borrow the car, not which one of them is going to put the salt shaker on the table.

I want my kids begging for a night away from their parents and out with their friends, not moaning because they are bored.

I want my teens to understand that in order to get what they want in life, they will have to work for it. 

That good things come to those who wait and are willing to work for it.

 

What about you ladies?  What do you want for your teens?

I want my teen to get more serious about her schoolwork

I want her to be responsible and independent

I want her to volunteer more and realize how great her life is

I want her to love life and live it to the fullest. And I want her to stop rolling her dang eyes at me!!!

 I would love for my daughter to get more involved in the community.

I jokingly came at her with a spoon the other day threatening to pop them right out of her head. She laughed but I think I got my point across.
