Are there any parents of teens out there. Our middle daughter turns 13 next week and although she is a great kid I have a pretty good feeling it is going to be an interesting few years lol ;)

My Daughter is 12.. but it feels like she's 15! Honestly, is it just me or does parenting just get more challenging as they get older? I don't remember being like her, when I was growing up.. times have changed!

I have a 13 y/o son, and I feel incredibly blessed that he doesn't cause me too much stress. I do have to reign in the sarcasm sometimes, and remind him about not telling certain stories in front of his brother who's 10. I have a feeling that he may be a little different then the average 13 y/o boy, as he tells me *almost* everything, and is chatty as heck.

My oldest dd is 14. I found that our "rough" patch was between the ages of 9-12. I'm sure there will be other "interesting" times to come....
