Just wanted to introduce myself... I am the mom to one teen and two 20 plus year olds. I use to post on AOL and Yahoo boards but haven't in awhile.

Lydia my teen is 13 and in the 8th grade... not a middle school...just a junior high. I am a special education teacher.

Hi Bethanne and welcome to the board! My boys are no longer teens - they are 21 and 24. I've been a member of Ivillage for probably 14 years or so - back in the days of Parentsplace/Parentsoup. I started lurking on the PoTeens board when my older ds was about 12 and cl'd the board for many years. This board is near and dear to my heart so I still check it regularly and post when I think I might have some BTDT advice.

Glad you found us - it's been pretty quiet around here lately. Everyone's teens must be behaving these days!
