Re: Becca turns 18 on the 17th- some advice/info?

Parenting a teen can certainly be challenging, but it sounds like you and your husband are handling things wisely and doing some great things to make the process go smoother. Congrats on some of the strategies you've implemented!

Becca's comment, "by law, I will be a legal adult but I fully respect that I live in your house and have to abide by your rules" is a very mature stance to take and sounds like she really understands that you and your husband still call the shots while she is living under your roof. Have you thought about a contract of some sort to document your wishes in writing and have Becca sign them so there is no misunderstanding of what is expected?

I wish you all the best...let us know how things are going!
