Is it me or the older your children get the more they think they know more than you? How do you keep them in line without going crazy yourself?

I can't say anything to my kids lately without them being so defensive.

hi honey, it can be so difficult to comunicate with older children without them thinking your nagging! i have 2grown up sons 18 and 21, and i found the key for me was to talk calmley with them and keep it light and easy going, treat them as a freind and show them respect and youl get that back, shouting is not an option, aprouch with a smile it doesnt cost nothing and has good results, good luck hun and hope this is ov some help to you, :) x
