I don't think I quite believed you when you say teens are hell. That there was a lot of emotional, hormonal outbursts. I don't remember being so bad myself.

My DD (almost 12) just had a first period. She went from this...angel to this...devil. Holy hell what am I in for and how do I handle it?!

That's was my DD, funny cause we were just talking about this. Her boyfriend told her he can tell when AF is coming cause she turns into a bitch. She got MAD, I had to tell her that him saying she was a bitch was nice. Holy cow does she turn evil. I mean psycho crazy!

Lol!!!!! I have younger ones biologically but I have had multiple teens live with me for various reasons (some family,some foreign exchange, ect) they aren't all like that. Our last foreign exchange student didn't go all evil witch she turned into a crier when AF appeared. She cried because my son fell when they were playing ring around the Rosie (she didn't get that was the point and he wasn't hurt)

I have a 12 yr old and a 2 yr old. I'm in double trouble. lol

And OMG the hair. Today at the dinner table she was fooling with it. And I'm like, DO you have to do that now? Her answer of course was yes. I thought it a bit rude for her to fool with her hair at the dinner table. But I could tell if I said more it would be a huge fight and I wasn't in the mood to persue it.

Yeah, mine is 22. Now that she's an adult I can avoid her a few days a month. When she was a teenager I just threw chocolate bars and raw steak into her room and ran like hell.
