    Definitely Agree!

    There have been times in my life where I thought I could definitely kill off a few family members because they have been driving me around the bend for some or other reason this especially goes for my two older brothers who have developed a little habit of irritating the hell out...

    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...
