Teenagers...

I did respite for a teenager for 5 days, weeks, months? No really it was 5 days, but I tell you it seemed like weeks.
I've never had teenagers before (other than my own) ummmmmm, can I just say these teens have more issues than I care to deal with.
I don't think I'll be doing this again.
Bless those of you who do teen foster care. You are much braver than me.

I think I would have a hard time with that too. That age adds a whole new set of issues.

i was scared at first and our first teen was very tough... we had a good 6 month run but then it went sour.
i took a class at the association conference with one who has adopted 14 teens....!!! loved her! now we foster two teen girls and I love it!! i mean i dont love every moment.. but i am happy to love on them

I couldn't imagine doing teens, the 10 yo I have now is way too much smart mouth, bad behavior, etc, etc....
