Isn't parenthood supposed to get a bit easier as your kids get older? Specifically, when they become adults aren't you supposed to be able to relax just a smidgen and not have to worry about them as much?
I only ask because I am considering strangling my 18 year old daughter and I just wondered if this was something normal.
I remember when my oldest was 18, I had moments when I wanted to strangle her. Wasn't anything specific that I can think of now, but I do remember having them occasionally.
Possibly I am just blocking and in three years I won't remember the exact reasons that I am thinking about strangling her now. I suppose that is something to think about.
