I'm just trying to survive these teen years and do the very best I can to set examples of being a responsible, respectful human.

My teenaged daughter gets mad at me and hides behind her dad who she lives with. She isn't speaking to me at all right now. In fact she's being down right hateful! I wish I could fast forward about five yrs!

Welcome. My girls are 19 and 22. So glad we are almost out of the teenage years. Fun to see the adults they are becoming.

Welcome to the group!

As a parent, that's really all you can do, and cross your fingers that they 'get it'.

Welcome to the group!

I have made it through the teen years with my only dd. I have 2 sons who are quickly approaching their teens. I think they will be more work through the teen years than my dd was.
