    How did this happen? Where did I go wrong?

    I made every effort to keep my teen happy but with discipline too. Always showed them love and affection. Why would my teen mumble the two words? Those two words that you say when you're so pissed off at a New York driver or a when a cop gives you a ticket for no reason. F...
