OK, that was a flop

So, no one wants to send me their creations. Didn't think it would work anyway. I have really gotten the feeling that the whole sewing world is cut throat and no one wants to give up their secrets. Well, then let's just move on to unruly 15 year olds shall we?

Can someone please tell me how the hell I am going to get through the next 3 years without going stark raving mad? Tonight Gillian brings home R rated movies (not allowed in this house) and then looks at me as though I have 3 heads when I tell her they are not allowed in the house. Why not? Because they aren't apprpriate I say. Well, I have already seen them. I don't really care. They are not to come into this house.

What are your expectations for your teens? Do they watch R rated movies in your house? Do you ban them from them knowing they are just going to watch them somewhere else? Do you just put your foot down and say no? I am seriously at a loss here.

Every single rule that we put down gets pushed and I am so damn tired of hearing her mouth and attitude. I am tired of being treated like a piece of shit, like I am worthless than dirt. And it just keeps going and going.

I really don't know how I am going to get through these next few years. And I am dead serious.

No R movies here - PG-13 is even pushing the limit (because he's almost 13, and because the Harry Potter movies were PG-13). Yes, it is a wonderful time to go stark raving made. It would be wonderful if they stepped in our shoes for a day...or an hour....

Damn, this is gonna be funny stuff to bring up to her when she has her own 15-year old.....

Our 15 yr old watches R rated movies occasionally. It depends on what it is. I don't know what she watches at other people's houses. She thinks we are very strict because we don't let her hang out in town at night after the movies. She doesn't understand that just because our town seems safe, bad things can still happen. She does try to push things sometimes, but overall is a good kid. The other one however (soon to be 13)..well..she is a different story!
