My new niece-in-law posted a link on Facebook to her friend's blog.

be like everybody else

It said such wonderful words in light of the horrible news story about the selfish NJ teenager who took her parents to court to force them to pay her over $600 in child support/living expenses, private high school tuition, and other moneys to make her life special. Yet she didn't want to follow the rules of the house. How sad the parents are going through this.

I remember when our son started his acting out as a teen, no way were we going to let him do as he pleased, come and go as he wished. It was our house, our money, and it was our obligation to provide a roof over his head and food in his belly until he became an adult, not to be his best friend and let him control the household. It was already in enough turmoil with his misbehavior.

God and patience got us through that ordeal and he did grow into a fine young man. I'm so sad that we didn't get to see him fully mature.
