:bang: :one: :bang: :one: :carla::bang:


insolent, disrepectful unappreciative little b.

This house sucks. (then, move in with your mother, and see what sucks really is)
We have no computer (our laptop broke on 03/28/2011, I'm working on it)
We have no cable (we do have cable, how do you think programs appear on your television)
I NEED my phone turned on!! (perhaps before you start being an asshole, i.e. biting the hand that feeds you, you might consider those "needs" that I pay apprx $70 a month for)
You don't care about me (Um... you pass on EVERY Invitation to go anywhere, I pick you up from wherever you are, ANYTIME YOU CALL, I bought your prom dress even though you cannot seem to do your homework, EVER, I run out and buy your tampons (as prior noted :lol:) pay for your b/c, and put up with your bi-polar ass every fucking day)
you don't know how to be a father

get the fuck out of my house. :coffee:

My brother is going through the same thing with his teenage boys.

Kid - "Dad - I want my birthday money early. You owe me $50"
Bro - "OWE you? Well maybe when you can be a little more respectful I'll consider it"
Kid - "But mom already gave me my money"
Bro - "So go ask her for more"
Kid - "You don't care about me and you never did"
Bro - "OK - I'm not going to buy you cigarettes either"
Kid - "I hate you"
Bro - "I love you"


Teenagers are horrible little creatures and are the same the whole world over.
They'll push the boundaries and try to get away with whatever they possibly can.
It's just the nature of the beast.
And it's even more difficult when the parents are estranged and the little darlings learn how to manipulate everyone to their advantage.
Fortunately, the ones we allow to live eventually outgrow it and become normal human beings again.
Just got to get through the years of the monsters inhabiting their brains and all will be well.

My 14-year old has a nightly flip out after she goes to bed because everybody downstairs is talking and keeping her up. She comes downstairs, yells at everybody, then posts on Facebook how her family doesn't care that she has to be up early.

I recently rented out my basement room to a young mother.... my daughter text's her nightly to "please keep it down"

yet, the kid at 6 am has fuggin LIL WAYNE at top volume :bang:

My youngest may be troublesome... but she is far too genuinely sweet and caring to be like ~this~ *I hope.

I tried that when I was 13 and almost got the shit kicked out of me. My mom ended up making me pay for half my car insurance, half my phone bill, all of my RX's and all my gas when I was 16 (not to be mean but to moreover teach me responsibility) and I have to say I don't think I ever gave her any crap ever again after that.

To give you a little hope, my sister was a big rebel at 17. I was always shy and sweet (not my words--other peoples:wink1: ). With the exception of staying out late with my sister a few times, I never went through a horribly rebellious stage. My sister on the other hand, went through the rebellious stage and is now a wonderful adult who's greatest love is working with special ed kids and is is the most loving and caring person I know. Hang in there UC:heart:

student loans are a rite of passage. when you divide the cost per credit ... If a 4-credit class costs $1,000 and it meets 10 times, when it's your $1,000, some kids think "Is it worth $100 to me to miss/skip this class?" before not going to class. Especially if it's $1,000 of their own future money. At least, that's how I looked at it, back then. (I realize 3 credits many places costs way more than $1k, these days.)

Yup and I totally understood it. But it also gave me more leway with the car, as i paid 100% for it....although I never did anything that was car removed worth...let me rephrase...I never got caught doing anything deserving of losing car privileges.

Dad paid for my tuition. One thing I am so thankful for. It does make it easier to have that paid for...good grades are a must though.

All I can say is....hold on tight and remind yourself that it won't last forever.

It gets so crazy sometimes you just have to completely ignore it. I used to wonder why my mom would ignore my behavior instead of discussing each and every heinous thing I did. Now I get it :lol: If you gave all your attention to every 'event' you would lose your marbles!
