    Did you find your sons or daughter the hardest in the teens? And why?

    That'sagoodquestion.Iseemtobemissingaspacebaronthe newcomputers????
    technical difficulties. ?? I will see how this works. ?? I would say my daughters were most difficult, one daughter in particular. Her personality was just so short tempered and strong willed. She totally would have killed her big brother given half the chance. World war three every day, because her brother did something, like breathed near her. My oldest son is only 21 months older than his twin sisters, and so the hormones were all going at the same time. His sisters were taller than him for a few months, and that caused more drama. My youngest son was able to go through puberty without any tensions, he was nearly 4 yrs younger that the girls.
    Those few years were the worst. But now everyone actually loves each other, and they are so happy to spend time with each other. My daughter who would have killed her brother, now thinks he is a fantastic guy, and loves him to the moon. Marie.

    I was just thinking about this while watching my kids argue, thinking gee it will be nice when they are mature adults and not doing this anymore. But then it occurred to me, I will be another 20 years older by then and will still think they are immature ha. Just like right now I feel like my husband and I are perfectly respectable adults, but I bet my MIL thinks we are silly kids still.

    I have a friend with adult children, & I remember a conversation with him and his wife once about what it's like raising teenagers. The parents just have such a great relationship with their kids, & I was asking how they managed it. He said to me that you should find something to enjoy about your kids at every stage of their life. Find what you love about them, and enjoy them for who they are, regardless of what they are going through. I'm yet to have teenagers, & I'm sure it won't be a piece of cake, but I think it was great advice. I love every stage my kids have been at so far, for different reasons. It can be hard, but I love it

    Has anyone seen the "X" thing going around on FB? I've stored it away in my head for later. I've always said if my kids were in trouble, at a party or whatever, that they could call and I'd come get them no matter what time it was. The X expands on that in that if the kid is feeling uncomfortable but doesn't know how to get out of something without loosing face, they send a parent a text with X in it. Parent then rings and says something like "where are you? We have a family emergency and I need to come get you". Kid can them blame leaving all on us.

    I think this is brilliant! It could stop peer pressure or my kid feeling like they have to participate in some thing they don't want to, or if a party is getting out of hand, or friend who is driving is drunk etc.

    yeah I showed that to my daughter a couple of weeks ago ... we talked about it and decided that that was something we would do. (she isnt quite old enough to be doing parties etc yet but it will be soon. High school next year)
