So, is this the place now for parents of any age teenager?  Any other parenting boards for teen (moms like me?), or is this the only one.

I have DD28, DS25 and DD14.  She is giving me a run for my money, to say the least.  

Anywho, just lurking this afternoon and thought I would say hello.

Hi Serenity, yes, this is the only one now--all the boards got condensed into one.

Hi Serenity and welcome! I have 2 boys ages 24 and almost 27. I started 'lurking' here about 15 years ago when the Ivillage boards were much more active. I was cl here for years so the board is still near and dear to me; I hate to see it so slow thes last years. Did your older kids give you a run for your money, too? My boys made it through the early teen years pretty well and I thought I was home free. Seems for both of them it was the 18-20 year old stage that gave us the most gray hair!

I assume the one who is giving you the run for your money is the 14 year old. Even though kids come out of the same mold they are all different. As I sure you’re aware from the first two, hang in there as things will either get better or worse before everything turns out to be fine.
