"WHY" do people "FIGHT"

At my age, (which is 56) I still can not figure out "WHY" people fight & argue!!! It amazes me of the many reasons, someone thinks, that--he or she, either--has the power or wants the power or wants the attention or wants a distraction or wants a reason to leave the house---to create a fight!!!

Where does it get you??? NOWHERE----causes alot of heartache on everyone (especially children, if they see or hear anything) I just think people, men & women, are "STUPID" when it comes to fighting---don't get my wrong, I've done my fair share of being a total bitch---but I have now realized, that it got me nowhere. I think of those moments--how much time was wasted!!!

Life is tooooo, short---people need to be respectful of one another & appreciate their life, that God has given them!

"WORRY" of Teenagers

This is a new chapter in my life---having a 19 yr. old son living with me, after he has been at his Dad's for 2 yrs. Well, I have come to realize, out of 4 children---not one, has lived with me after High School!!! What the hell, was I thinking!!! I guess, you could say I had no choice---he was running wild in Tennessee, I MEAN WILD----20,000 miles on a new truck, in 3 months---don't get your calculator out, that is around 1,700 miles a week, which 17 is my lucky number, which, Thank God, he survived!

He's here---NOW WHAT?? Can I play hard ass--NO!---tell him what to do--NO! Ground him--NO! My only leverage is "The Truck"---he just doesn't know it, YET!!!

Many sleepless nights in the last 4 weeks---WORRY is the word!!! All of you parents know what this is like. Right now, I am letting him make his own decisions, the only thing I have ask, is to let me know, he is OK.

Being a WORRY-WART, I find is nerve racking!!
The weird thing is---he (as in Cutter) doesn't even notice---

Loving Your Kids--I'll take any suggestions--
