|What loving momma goes through
Once children reach the teen years
I remember I never knew what mood
My four teenagers were in the morning
Or practically any time
Of the Day
Excellent Bribing Day Verse!!
Sending You Peace Love and Light….Yolie

Only a parent who goes through this could tell it with such ringing truths; an old friend of mine used to say - bless him - that all teenagers at the onset of puberty should magically disappear from the world and return at 20 groomed, polished and mature, an extreme view, but at times one a lot of adults would subscribe to, if only for a moment.

|tumultuous ladies both, Phyllis Jean -- the slamming of doors is the thunder I presume, and switches light off and on, the lightning -- I think this is a marvelous poem and a metaphor too -- peace and love -- Jon Michael|

|Dear Miss Green Jean - how true - how true!
Taught both my daughter & my Son to drive - on a STICK-SHIFT - if you learn that, anything else (i.e. automatic) is easier! Son was easier also! TEENAGE GIRLS ARE ALWAYS A TRIP!
Ann, now 38, after 20+ years of stick is now finally CHOOSING auto - less trouble & fuss - PLUS - newer trannies just about as efficient.
Peace - Tom.

|I guess I am backwards, I saw the girl as a metaphor to the weather...not the other way around. Maybe I could relate because of the fickleness of the weather around here. Either way... a superbly imaged poem!

|Looks like I struck a nerve!:) Thought I was writing about nature's
whimsical take on a 'schedule': That the girl would stay a metaphor. Shouldn't be surprised the 'pill' took over. My son will tell you that he was the adolescent from hell. Daughter easier, but being normal . . .Can't say I am sorry those days are behind. But pity the child who does not strive for greater independence! In the long run, the more independent they are, the more pride we have reason to take in them when they reach adulthood. After all, it was all o u r doing. Smile! 'Fiss' ...'Pea'....? Ex Ma Fromhell ?

|Having gone through and survived the teenage years with three daughters I know just what this write means. Tthe roller coaster of homonal emotions, combined with a changing world, peer pressure and so many other things sometimes makes you hate them but then a little girl goodnight kiss sneaks in and you forget all.
