    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.

    First Boyfriend
