Growing up is for suckers.
The world says you’ll have to grow up and do responsible things one day. Tell the world to f*ck itself, take off your Forum Men’s Young Blood T-Shirt, and bust out an insulting victory dance right on its face.

life of my grandson and other teens
Too much responsibility, not enough praise or reward will overstress and lead to a negative outcome for your teen! Agreed too much free time without someone's help to guide that energy to a positive outcome can be a wreck but when the teen asks for the reward, it does not require a smart ass remark you will get it when 'I' say! Punishing a teen requires a time limit not a smartass statement of 'you are grounded until I say' Too many parents make the same mistake and that is the lack of consistancy- If it is no today then it is no tomarrow, if it is punishment then tell how long and what it was for, if a teen has to act as the adult when it is conveinant for the parents, like babysitting, then by gosh let that teen know your appreciation and allow that teen a little more freedom! from nana in Tennessee!
