"clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right"

last night we were not the best parents, but considering the teenager's attitude maybe we didn't do so well.

long story short, cell phones and Internet privileges are suspended for now and even though punishment has been doled out NOBODY is happy. i am at a loss and do not know what i need to be doing.

i lost it last night and jere really lost it last night. please pray for some wisdom on our part because we are truly flying blind. we want to be the most capable parents we can be, we're not even shooting for best just okay would be nice.

blessings for your week,

I am at a loss as to what to say. Only I am thinking and praying for you. My heart is broken at your news and I hope for the best. Hang in there and know that God is there. I love you guys.

Without knowing details, I can only guess the drama you must be going through. I hated being a teenager, so I imagine rearing one is a pain in the rear. Ha! Anyway, when I was going through a really rough time, a friend gave me this advice: "Either way, it will work out." It was such a simple thing, but it helped. I kinda threw up my hands and thought, "ya know, it'll pass, time doesn't stand still and leave you in a rotten predicament...it'll always be a roller coaster. You are never on the bottom too long before you are on top of the world again...but then look out, because you aren't gonna stay there too long either.
