Hi smitty!

There is a board FULL of moms who are going through what you're dealing with (and I used to be one of them! *s*)

I have 2 teenager daughters, 16 and 17. They are different in their own way. The younger one is very social and friends matter more to her than family. The older is anti-social to everyone. But I'm able to reach both by being patient and also letting them know that I am here for them in good times and bad. I advised them when needed and learned not to give lectures. Because it goes in one ear and out the other!
