I do not endorse laziness myself or disrespect of any kind. That said, I remember my teenage years, they were damn difficult. I was hormonally charged, self-conscience,over burdened with homework, peer pressure and difficulties at home. I love my parents they're awesome, but I'd never want to live with them again. So I understand why teens seem lazy & at times disrespectful, they are in hormone hell. I deal with my own issues once a month, hormonally speaking... As hard as I try my irritability gets the better of me, causing the odd disrespectful comment and the random act of laziness. If I had to deal with all the peer pressure, adult drama and homework that teens do, I would be a Pitbull in lipstick. We as parents have to be realistic, yes I bribe my kids to help out, and they gladly accept! I see no problem with the reward system, do a job get paid for it... Makes perfect sense to me! My teenage boy is awesome, he is caring, kind, intelligent, sarcastic and his sense of humour is random and completely twisted... Yes he can be disrespectful but I speak to him as his father does and he tries to correct himself to the best of his ability. I would not change a thing about my kid!!! As a matter a fact he impresses the hell out of me and here is just one of the many reasons why- I gave him 20 bucks this weekend to go to the movies with his buddy. They changed plans and spent the evening, talking, Facebooking and playing Xbox.The first thing my son did upon returning home, was hand me the 20 dollars back, explaining he didn't need it. All I could do was hug him, he seemed confused by my reaction. Saying,"Why wouldn't I give it back?" Sure he has lots to learn and parenting is the key but like most teens he is doing pretty damn well considering!

The teen years are already fraught with such tension and a sense of drama, it may be difficult at first to realize that your teen may have bi-pola..., Helen Stuart
Suelynne Brown's insight:
Spotting bipolar disorder in a teen may prove to be difficult... Parents should not jump to conclusions or assume their teen is on drugs, if odd behavior arises. Teenagers have a lot to say. They just need to know you are taking them seriously and are actually listening. When my son opens up in his random fashion, I pay attention. If you feel your teen may have bipolar disorder get him or her to a a physian and, get a referral to a pyschiatrist. Bipolar disorder is treatable and, those who are diagnosed and recieving proper treatment go on to lead very productive lives.
