Raven is ten years old. So that means in three years she will be thirteen and officially a teenager *Gasp*. I can honestly say that I am not looking forward to having to deal with a teenager. Even though Mike and I are a younger set of parents I know that we will still have problems making her believe that we understand what she is going through. Hopefully she will not make some of the mistakes Mike and I made during our youth. Not only do I have what we went through but also what other parents have confided in us about their teens problems and situation. And I am not just talking about the normal teenager problems like mouthiness. I am talking about serious problems such has drug abuse or falling in with the wrong crowd.
I hope and pray that we are the lucky ones and Raven by passes all those serious problems that more and more teens are getting mixed up it. Cause I do not know if Mike and I could handle all those problems alone without some kind of help.
