My mother used to say over and over (to my brothers, of COURSE!) I HOPE YOU HAVE KIDS TWICE AS BAD AS YOU!!!!!
Ummm..... don't have kids.
Good article Jenn. Girl, a lot of us can relate to this punkness you speak of.
I believe you could use this topic and take God's word from the "love chapter", 1 Cor 13, and use verse 11 to drive home your point.
God bless your time with the punks/kiddos.
