    True, yet several of us have come to the same conclusion based on the content of your posts. Why do you think that is?

    At the ages Henrin is talking about being a good parent is far more relevant. Only if you are a control freak who looks down on your kids would you think raising the average teenager is harder.
    Far more relevant? If you don't have them under control by age 5 or 6, you will be spending the next 15 years trying to regain lost ground. And the teen years will probably be the hardest.
    As for control freak, it appears you and Henren have been subjected to such control. Just getting your side of the story isn't enough to make a judgement in your case, but I have seen the results of control freaks...the kids move away as soon as possible and hardly ever come back.
    Looking for sympathy won't be any help. We all have our burdens in life, and it is up to each of us to find a way to overcome those burderns.

    Not one kid ever got into trouble about anything? You are a liar and your observations are noted as worthless.

    I only worked at one private school and I can tell you quite confidently that there are discipline problems, but teachers and admins are often a little afraid to bring them up since daddy can get you fired or if it is serious enough and brought up, it is sometimes bought off and hidden.

    Comprehension issues? He quite clearly stated, "raise kids".

    I will say my experience comes from having a nine year old and two year old.
    You had a child at ten years-old?

    Not like it matters, you have grandkids, so you win the fight of EXPERIENCE!
    Perhaps the first correct thing that you have said...

    If someone fails to see humor they're dumb? Nice perspective you've got there.
    He said, "not smart enough", not dumb. Try again...

    I have no idea it was a seventeen years ago.
    You have no idea what school you went to? That might be the first time that I have ever heard a person say that. Seriously does not bode well for your memory about such subtle issues like discipline problems and other aspects regarding uniforms. Do you remember the town it was in? What color were the uniforms? Like I said, a bonobo born every minute...

    I think that she just feels sorry for you... that is empathy.

    At the ages Henrin is talking about being a good parent is far more relevant. Only if you are a control freak who looks down on your kids would you think raising the average teenager is harder.
    Dude, one word. Sarcasm.
