My Teen Refuses to Grow Up

ARE YOU A SINGLE MOM AND YOUR TEEN IS DRIVING YOU CRAZY?

Oh what a topic for discussion…

I have been there and done that and for some reason, I don’t know why, I’m still feeling the craze.

Why oh why won’t my teen grow up. For heaven’s sake he is in his mid-twenties and still thinks that his mom is supposed to be responsible for his welfare.

Last time I checked – MOM does not mean Made of Money but for some reason our children seem to think that is what it means.

I have been a single mom for the past ten or so years. It was just this past spring, when my son moved in with us. He has had crisis after crisis dampen his mood. This is almost to the point that I want to say to him – Get out and Get your own life.

Sometimes I want to scream…

What do you do when you go into their room only to find a dinner, a whole meal, secretly stashed away in a sock drawer?

Why bother washing the socks if you want them to stink?

Needless to say, I once again had to put my foot down and demand some changes.

ROW80 Check-in:

Not much to report since the last check-in. I haven’t added anymore words to Along Came Neil.

This story is kind of like a puzzle to me. I know how it starts and how it ends but what goes in-between is another story. Someone mentioned that I should try plotting with the W approach.

So back to plotting mode I go in order to learn how to write a teen romance.

How is your ROW80 going this week?

Are you looking for others to cheer on or would you like to join in the fun?
