the teenage years...i know i have along ways to go before they reach that age but i know a lot of moms who have teens and i see what they are dealing with and it scares me...do you think your parenting techniques will be much different when they reach the teen years or if you have teens how have your parenting techniques changed over the years?

Ive survived it twice and have 8 years before I have to deal with it again! lol

To me the teen years were easier. I learned early on to pick and chose my battles.
