When I hit 13 I became really depressive and rebellious. I started smoking cigarettes, I drank and went to parties on occasions, snuck out, rode in friend's cars when I wasn't allowed to. Wouldn't come home for hours past curfew, smoked pot, etc. I never really went out of control, and I grew out of it by 16, 17. My grandma says I was an angel compared to my mom. My mom was stealing cars, doing hardcore drugs, etc. I'm hoping my kids will be an agel compared to me lol. I admit, I am a little nervous for my small kids to become teens. I just hope that if we can maintain a good relationship and can share with each other. I just hope my kids won't be afraid to come to me and not be scared of how I am going to react.
So were you a bad teen? (Stories?)
How will/did you handle your teen's rebellious behavior?
