Now...to the post:
As a joke, I went on Google to type in "I hate tornadoes," just to see if there was a Facebook page I could like. Well, as I am typing in my search in Google's search bar, I see the following pop up as my first automatic option (you know...when Google suggests a search term for you as you type? I am sure there is a real word/term for this, but I am not that tech savvy...):
I hate my teenage daughter
I mean, are there that many people typing in "I hate my teenage daughter" as a search term???? I know that teenagers can make all of us crazy. Kids turn from adorable, cuddly babies into strange mini-adults/big-children who seem to constantly revert back to the terrible twos at times. I get it. Believe me. I have been a nanny and been on that side, even if I don't have my own children. I have also taught pre-teens and young teens, high school kids, and college kids. I GET IT.
Hating them? REALLY? Teens may be crazy sometimes, but they can be amazing as well. I don't think that I would have recovered if I found out that my mom was searching for articles/sites that are titled "I hate my teenage daughter."
Look for the good, people. Look for the good.
