Re: shared parenting not working

Your 18 and 19 year old OBEY you? Um, ok. At 18 or 19, I hope my dd LISTENS to what I say but I don't expect obedience once she is a legal adult. How will she ever be her own person if I am FORCING her to do things at 18 or 19?

You don't control your kids - especially older teens. At that point, you have to loosen up a bit. Especially if the teen has proven he/she can handle it. If you have a wild kid, that is different.

I would think by mid to late teens, the focus shouldn't be on FORCING a kid to do things. Yeah, dad might have his overnights with force but that won't create an atmosphere the kid will want to come back to once he is 18. So, dad has "won" short term but long term, he very well might lose when his kid writes him off and there is no legal document to force anything.
