Parenting Teenagers

This is a support group for parents who have raised teens, are raising teens or tweens, or anyone who has kids and is curious about what to expect. The good, bad, funny, sweet, heartwarming, heartbreaking, things we get to experience with the hormonal little versions of ourselves we are raising. Dang, that's a lot. Let's all be respectful to each other and realize we are all going through the same thing.
