Works for me

I was talking to a girlfriend of mine who also has a fourteen year old daughter.

As we were commiserating over the pains involved in raising teen girls she told me that an elderly friend of hers had given her this advice.

"Keep 'em busy and keep 'em poor."

I think I like it.

  1. I love it and believe it! Short of that, move to the middle of nowhere where there aren’t even other hooligans to get into trouble with! Add to that shoddy internet connectivity, phones that are often down and out and no neighbors really to speak of.
    And I wonder why mine isn’t the social queen!?! 😉
