Wildcat - 2860 - Not today, noticed I have been lax on my posting recently. Guess that can be OK but I still need to be held accountable. Been training for half marathon and its taking a lot of time as race day is only a few weeks away. Stay quit.

Wildcat-2844- Todd, I have a daughter and remember those teenage years well. That is a tough age for kids as they think they know everything and that you don't know anything. I like your ODAAT approach. My advise would be to be stay consistent to the best of your ability in your dealings with her. Regardless of how challenging teen girls can be I try to remember that I need to be the one to set and show how to be a male role model. After all, you are the first man she loved and will use your example as a measuring stick for selecting a mate down the road. There are times when you just make a point or give advise and walk away allowing them time to think about what you said and not just react. My daughter is now 24 and has a good head on her shoulders. Just stay on the same page with your wife and present a equal front on all major issues. This too will pass.
todd - 2766 - Thanks WC. my wife and I coordinate regularly on issues with my daughter and I take seriously my role as a role model for her and my boys. It seems to go in waves with her. I have been trying to be positive and consistent. I will try the tact of stating something and walking away and letting her hopefully draw proper conclusions. I really appreciate the advice.
Tom - 2854 - Great question and advice.  My wife and I have no children.  I always remember my parents, when I was a teen causing grief, telling me how much they hurt when I was making bad decisions and acting like a rebel.  To this day, it still impacts me on how their tough love shaped my life from their positions and the ultimate choices I made - success or failure.  It was like one day, I just woke up.  Good luck Todd.


Thank you both for responding to me. I really do appreciate it. Things seem to be improving. I have found that when it gets particularly contentious if I go out and swing an axe at logs my anger dissipates. Not only does it help with that but then I have logs for the fire pit :smile:. not today, 2773

Wildcat-2845- Nobody ever said raising kids was easy. Just do the best you can with the what you know and I feel all will work out OK. The hard part in today's world is you have to give them a chance to make there own choices at times and hope them make a good one. I look back on it and realize what I must have put my parents through. Good point there Tom. Stay quit.

todd - 2761 - quit. My daughter, 13 almost 14, is truly unpleasant at times. I find myself taking the bait she sets for an argument frequently. I am thinking of applying the ODAAT philosphy to my dealings with her. One day at a time to not take the bait. One day at a time to speak firmly but nicely, even if she thinks I am not. One day at a time to hope that this too shall pass in terms of her attitude and treatment of all of us. Either of you have daughters and gone through this? any advice on how to weather the teenage daughter storms? hope all is well.
