With respect to my daughter, I removed this post. But here’s the point–don’t rush your kids into adulthood.

They will get there quickly enough.

And they’ll never get to go back.

(And no, my daughter isn’t in any kind of trouble. She’s not drinking. She’s got a good head on her shoulders. Way better than I did at her age.)
