Obviously not a parent of teenager(s)

I was thinking the same thing. I've noticed that people who question my decision to be childfree are NEVER parents of teenagers!

And of course, the fact that I had to live with my 15 year old "problem child" cousin for 4 months probably strengthened my decision even more (as if it needed it). Living with a smart-mouthed, spoiled teenager from So. Cal. who ran away from home was more first-hand experience than I cared to have. And I wasn't even the one acting as the parent -- my Mom and Dad had the dubious honor of dishing out some old-fashioned Midwestern discipline.
