Because that’s what we do in our house. We blame our kids’ less desirable characteristics on our partner’s gene pool.
My teens are growing up, and in some ways everything seems different, now. In plenty of other ways, though, it’s all still very familiar.
Teaching older kids about the ins and outs of respect has to be about reminding them that they control themselves and no one else, but it’s tricky territory.
Having teenagers in the house is a solemn death knell of romance for the parents. And they’re not even sorry about it, either.
Today’s kids are being pushed to pick out their career paths way too young, I think, and I’d rather we teach them to keep an open mind and adventuresome spirit.
