    My daughter and I share many things.  Our sense of humour for a start, our taste in music (perhaps hard to believe but true), movies, food and many attitudes and beliefs.  We enjoy each other's company and have great fun when we go out together.But she is my harshest critic...

    What Homework?

    My daughter is 15 and a sophomore in high school.  She is pretty, funny, kind, sweet and many other fine things.  She also has the inattentive subtype of ADHD.  She takes Concerta every day, but I'm not sure it really makes a difference.  She just doesn't do...

    My Daughter Is Being Ostracized - What Can I Do?

    I am the proud father of a wonderful 13-year old girl. She is beautiful both inside and out. We try to provide the best for her and spend the majority of our income to have her in a local prep school to shield her from bad influences and to give her the chance to have the best...

    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 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...

    My daughter will be turning 15 soon

    and she's started dating her first proper bf, he seems like a nice lad, just a shame that they grow up so fast she's not my little baby any more and I sometimes miss that.

    ugh where do I even start?

    damn she's 15 and truly is a handful. I wish I could read her mind so I can figure her out sometimes. she doesn't talk to me at all and honestly it beats me down because it's like I know she's going through something and won't let me help her. Last year she was diagnosed with a...
