I am so scared this is going to be my daughter. And then I think, "Of course it will be." Damn it!
As a teen, I thought my mom was a b!+ch and she definitely was not the boss of me. No way in hell am I going to get to avoid the unpleasantness.
Her dad/my husband is already telling me his future: plans to be an uptight jerk. He somehow thinks that getting rough and "cracking down", if she starts doing less than well, will solve the problem.
I can already see where things are headed.
Do you ever have a sense of impending doom at the thought of your kids becoming teenagers? Do you think there is anything parents can do to change how their teenagers perceive them?
