I was a pretty good teenager. My mom and I fought all the time, and I complained about doing chores. But, I mostly stayed out of trouble and got good grades.

As for "Just wait till you have children of your own," my mom is constantly reminding my sister and I that we are getting paid back for all the stuff we did as kids.

That may be why I did not have such a terrible time with dd's teen years. I was not much trouble, and did a very limited amount of stupid stuff. Dd was similar. Dh was also a fairly sober and reasonable teen.

In my mind, I wasn't a terrible teen. I didn't drink, smoke or experiment with drugs. I was a straight A student and had a part time job. Nonetheless, I fought constantly with my mother, and finally left home in a huff when I was 19. But my kids won't be just like me, because I'm not just like my mother.

My parents could never say that to me because I was a good kid, good teen.

Although I partied quite a bit (no drugs), I was considered a good kid. I think dd will be pretty similar, although I don't think her grades will be as good.

I'd be okay if my kid was just like me.

I had the typical teenage "attitude" and was generally disorganized and messy, but I didn't get in trouble.

I don't recall my mother ever saying that to me. Both of my older kids are similar to me...dd14 more than ds13. I didn't like teens when I was one (and I only like a select few now, lol). I was a good kid... so far my kids are too.
