Especially when you need someone to back you up when your kids are not doing what they've been told.  Grrr!

They all have families of their own and live at least 45-60 minutes or more away.... I get to deal with it by myself.

Totally agree! There are so many moments the best thing I can do is scream into my pillow at the unfairness of it all and let the negative emotion of resenting my still married friends with kids pass. I have a teenager in my duo and I often wonder if it would be easier to have a toddler. Still, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger...right?

This...or when you can hear your ex husband's words coming out of your teenage sons mouth about how controlling you are or how you don't give him any privacy.

I totally understand.  I'm fortunate that my son is active in martial arts and his instructors back me up.  If he's acting up at home or getting crappy grades, he can't move up a belt or he can be demoted a belt.  Karate school is like the other parent :)

Thank goodness that hasn't happened and it's not likely to since their dad moved out of state.
