    So I'm majorly struggling with my 14 year old

    daughter. She's the splitting image of me at that age and that scares me even more lol. But she has a good head on her shoulders and isn't a "bad" kid. She is just easily influenced and wants to be likes by all. She recently joined the cheer team and has now had two back to back...

    Thanks For Nothing Orkin!

    The Orkin man came today, says I've got Teenagers, but he couldn't do anything about them.  So much for that pest control.  Lol! I don't actually have the children, they are my mother's, but they live with me and I suffer too damnit!

    What can I say. Two boys 18

    and 16 and a daughter 14. The oldest has moved out and knocked up his girlfriend even with all the knowledge and condoms he could ever want. The middle boy is really tight with his friends and smokes a little pot and is getting in trouble over stupid stuff. He has a bad rep with...

    Two Great Girls

    My eldest will be off to college in September, and I'm going to miss her so much. At least I have another one (age 15) to focus on. Then what? More cats, I guess!

    I feel like a horrible Mom right now.

    My oldest daughter is now a little older than 19. I had a lot of problem with her growing up. Trust issues abound because of her lying. She is/was a pathological liar and makes pretty bad choices in friends for the most part... Who she 'perceives' as a friend, anyway. I eased...

    I Love My Teens Even Though They Drive Me Crazy!

    Why are teenagers so full of drama. I am not just talking about girls either. I have teen boys and I think they have some kind of pact that says that if one of them is in a good mood, the other has to be cranky and complaining about EVERYTHING. Ugh...I love them to pieces but...

    Almost A Grandpa...

    I have 8 kids, with twins on the way. 3 of them are teenagers. My son Bentley is 15 and has always been the "good one." He rarely ever got into trouble and he is usually just a happy, goofy kid. The last few months he'd been acting a little weird. He seemed quieter and moodier...
