I heard you talk about the most difficult ages being 16-25, to maybe even 30. I laughed out loud when I heard you say this! When my kids were in that age range, I wished I could've said, "Call me when you're 30 and let me know how you're doing."
These years were so hard to watch, as my daughter and son became adults. I am proud to say they turned out great, despite a few minor potholes. We have a great relationship.
Thanks for all you do. You and your blunt, pragmatic, yet kind advice, is a staple in my life.
