    My Incredibly Wonderful Daughter

    I figured I better click on this group now cause next week I won't be able to say this anymore:  my daughter is having a birthday and will be 20 years old!  Most people can not believe I have a 20 year old- they always think we are sisters!  I guess in a certain...

    My Daughter Is 15...what A Handful She Is!

    I'm a younger single father, I had my daughter when I was still a teenage. I'm not sure how to deal with her as she gets older. She is becoming very smart mouthed and disrespectful. Not at all the same little angel she used to be. I'm to the point of grounding her so often that...

    She was a great high schooler, straight A's, never even 5 mins late for curfew, no drugs or drinking. She tried college but quit, now is in cosmetology school and I think she'll stick with it. The problem comes with how she has been around the house lately. She has stopped...

    My daughter will be turning 15 soon

    She is such an unhappy girl.

    It kills my wife and I to see her like this. All three of my kids have friend issues. The problem is my wife and I both loners. We have each other and that's enough for us. We have raised our children to be very independent and because of this they are years more mature than...
