Having been there as a parent, I understand your anxiety and concern. Our role is to provide the 'roots and wings'. It's just difficult and painful when they start to fly! You're on the right road to dealing with the stress, we can never eliminate it in our lives, but how we handle it can make life easier (at times).
I wish you the best, I'm sure Ryan will be just fine and his parents as well. Hang on a little tighter to one another.
PEACE and Blessings,
Cathy L.

STRESS....A few times in my life, I have gone through stressful periods and seemed to ride them out. Not always in the most healthy ways; however, I got through them. Recently, I am feeling like part of the sandwich generation....aging parents/in-laws and the demands of motherhood. For the past seven months,I have "given in" to exercising and WOW! what a stress release! Not only am I getting in shape; but it is the TIME for ME! It feels so good for one hour EVERY DAY to have no contact with anyone except myself! I was never a believer...but now I believe in NOTHING VENTURED, NOTHING GAINED! You need to do it for yourself and then you are so much more equipped to deal with all the stressors that life brings and they don't seem insurmountable!!!

I have just in the last six months become a dedicated, passionate advocate for MonaVie... Are you familiar with its tremendous scientifically verified positive affects on emotional wellness as well as its impact on the body's complete cellular rehabilitation due to the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties (and etc, etc, etc) of this fruit blend?

I wish it were as easy as that! With an infant and a 4 year old my day consists of following them around and cleaning up every mess that they make! Trying to find even 10 minutes of downtime for me is nearly impossible! Working night leaves me tired most of the day and I find myself becoming irritated easily. I just try to force myself to be calm. It's all I can do. Knowing that you can control yourself and your emotions is my only way to cope!


Well, I think at that age, 17, it's expected...let your kids make mistakes..be nice, but not to nice. let him know it was wrong, but needs to ask, atleast call...i know my rents get worried.
:) hope this helps.
