Any of you have teens who are talking about the semicolon project today? Evidently we should all be checking our children's wrists.  < https://m.facebook.com/pages/The-Semicolon-Project/659615364052145?id=659615364052145&_rdr>

Well, i was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt. It is hard to believe that her behavior is by choice.

I've tried many times to give that same benefit and have to conclude that it is by choice, sadly.

I wouldn't purposely look up the pages of my kids' friends as I hear about them from my kids themselves. Of course there are friends of theirs I am friends with as are there mothers of their friends I am friends with too, There's a good balance of that there.

Smh, Tourettes isn't a behavior problem.  Besides, Laughing out loud is to find humor in what's written on this board and there's plenty of it, Lol.  What's your excuse?

Maybe the injection of humor seems out of place in this thread, considering... Jams.
