Teen angst sets mom on fire?

By  | 

matchesSince when did pouring gasoline in your mom's bedroom while she slept–then lighting it on fire–become ‘typical teen angst'???

An 11 year old girl and her 15 year old boyfriend (already there is something wrong with that) are accused of doing just that to the girl's mother. The police say it was “probably typical teenage angst”, and goes on to mention that the girl and her mother had recently argued over stealing mom's smokes.

The mind boggles. It really does. How on earth is trying to set your mother on fire in any way TYPICAL???

That being said, how do we establish a solid relationship based on respect and trust with out children?

I have some thoughts on that I'd like to discuss with you this week. Put on your thinking caps.
