Oh oh!

My daughter is 15 going on 27 and now she is pushing for her drivers license... She also wants to get a job which I think would be great.

But... I constantly have the parental fear of the worst happening all the time. She hates it because she feels I do not want her to grow up which is probably partly true as she is the last fledgling on the nest. I suppose I will just have to suck it up, help her get her license and a job and hope for the best...

No one ever told me about the worry factor of parenting... I just thought it was all going to be smoooooth sailing. On a side note, my Mother told me recently that a parent never stops worrying... I said " But I'm 42 years old" and she said it doesn't matter.

Looks like parents have a lifetime of stress to deal with.

I'm in the exact same boat. I allowed her to get her license (she's 16.5 now) and it's actually served me well with grounding her. ; )

I lose much sleep cuz of that girl tho, let me tell ya.

My daughter is almost 6 and you guys are scaring the bejeebers out of me!

My Plans (And you can tell me if I'm off a bit with the numbers)

Age 21 - First kiss
Age 30 - First steady boyfriend
Age 40 - Move out of the house
Age 45 - Boyfriend is allowed to move in with her
Age 50 - Marriage
Age 55 - (Can't even say it. Starts with "s" and ends with "x")
It's all just downhill from there.

I hear chastity belts are back in fashion

I wonder if there is less worry with boys. Actually I'm worried all the time as well!

Same here, my daughter will be six in a few days and she has a 3 year old sister...they both already scare the bejeebers out of me. I hope by the time they're teens medical science will have come up with some kind of ***** intravenous drip I can just wheel around with me all the time.

Wow! That was awesome. Your daughter was so blessed to have that matured mind. Just control her but do support her also more especially if she has a good idea plus a great interest being shown.

Reading everyone's posts, I could say it's really hard to be a parent with all the worries you guys have for your children but just an advice, let them explore the world they're living in. Parents can teach their children right from wrong but don't control them totally. Let them learn things on their own, just guide them.

Agree With You,
If You Control Your Son Or Daughter To Much It Would Make Them Do What You Dont Want Them To Do,
I Am A teenager and I do things Which My Mom Asks Me Not To do (not Everthing She Asks Me Not To Do),I would Suggest The Same To you Let Them Take Care Of Them And keep An Eye On Them In A way That They Dont Get To Know,If They Fall in Some Situation You Are There To Take Of them,
Be Friend Of Your little Princess/prince More Then Being Father/mother,

Being parents Would Be Hard But When they Smile looking At Us And Hug Us That Would Give A Wonderful Feeling(I think So Cause Whenever I Hug My Mom She Forgets Her Anger And Gives Me Some Cookies

I appreciate your opinion, but you and my little daughter are a totally different person, so you can't assume that my daughter would do the same as you, doing the opposite whatever your mom tells you,. i will raise her to be obedient at all times., and i know every parent has their own special way of raising their children., nice suggestion though.,

Ya Everyone Is Diff But people grow Stubborn Sometimes,
So Just take Care Of Your Princess Hope She Doesnt Become Like Me nor Like Paris Hilton (j/k),

Raise Her In Your Way As You Want that Was Just A suggestion What I would Do Or Try To do Something Similar When i would become parent

just respect her decision and be there when she needs you...
Your child is growing up and needs to learn how to live independently...

You cant always stop her from doing what she wants because sooner or later she will do it anyway...

I think Zap was joking

You can't let your fears control your child's life! Ideally that is what I would like to do, but it is a real struggle! To fight your own fears is the hardest battle.

Ya think? lol! It's so obvious that he was joking it seems absurd that it would have to be pointed out. Real learning curve for me. Learning is good.

So true! Plus society so rapidly continues to change...it's baffling. When your 5 year old is exhibiting attitudes that you yourself didn't even know about until you were 11 or even older...

Yeah I got the same impression. That's what I meant. Hard for me to remember that some things just aren't obvious to everybody. Probably how everybody here feels when I ask my stupid questions about simple webmaster stuff!
