If you raise your kids with clear expectations from day one, teenagers are no problem at all. I've graduated and moved one out, and the other will be done in 2 problems.

If you've not done that, then you can be prepared to handle undisciplined, entitled brats.

Good luck!

Just as Jodi said. You should have set up rules from the day the child was born. You should have been teaching them, modeling for them, and giving consequences when things were not followed through on. I also have a teen and when he breaks the rules and he knows he did the wrong thing he has to pay the consequences even when he tells me a few days after the fact of the incident. He knows enough to tell me and he does pay the price for his actions. Having those boundaries are an important part of their growing up and they do not have any other role models in their lives as much as their parents.

Already am. It's not that difficult if you have had boundaries right from day 1. But then I also teach teenagers who haven't had those boundaries and have to put up with their crap and I deal with that too. My kids are an absolute delight to come home to.

But it would be helpful to know exactly what you were asking.
