Sandra, I am so glad you brought this subject up! I feel the same
way, my kids have nothing to "rebel" against, I actually encourage my
kids to question things! Kevin just turned 13 and I get comments all
the time "Ohhhhh, those teenage years!". I always respond with "Well,
I happen to really LOVE those teenage years and REALLY enjoy my
teenager, thank you very much." I have also over the last couple of
years been asked quite a few times, "How do you make your
kids______?" It can really get me steamed up. Reading that little
section that you posted about the rebellious teenager makes me so sad,
that mom is missing out on so much!!
