    It's good to know that your "risk" paid off. It's a well established fact that the teenage brain is not fully developed and decison making and planning are not fully matured. You have given your daughter a great gift.

    So sorry for your loss, she sounds like she was a remarkable lady. You make some excellent points in regards to growing up. Looks like your children were blessed to have the two of you for parents.

    Yes, it is very difficult to raise a family in tough financial conditions. What makes it really tough is a consumer culture that preys on families.

    Teens of any generation have always needed structure, routine, boundaries, love and respect. The problem is that some of us emphasize structure and routine over love and respect. Teens want to know that they matter,are heard, and have a voice.

    This is doubly challenging if a child has two different examples in their parents. One is strict, the other permissive...very confusing for a child. Setting a good example is critical because it lends credibility to the parent.
