    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.

    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 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...
