Just Need Some Reforcement On This

Recommended Posts

I've never worried about hair color having gluten in it, I'm more worried about shampoo and conditioner.

Funny, Chelsea, about the tattoo and your mom. I work with college students and warned them, if you get a tattoo get it "here" and I motion the upper part of your butt cheek, if you're getting a weird piercing, get it through your tongue or belly button. That way if you are more conservative (probably because of work) when you're older, then you have no evidence of your wild youth!!! Hair color is a great way to express yourself, too, since it's reversible. That being said, my girls don't get to do any of that till college, and my boys, till they're paying their own bills. :P

I always let my teens defy me with their clothes and hair, I think it helped keep them from defying me in less obvious ways like drugs or immorality. Of course I let them know what I think of bright red hair and pj bottoms as outdoor wear. In their opinions on a much too regular basis :huh:

So far, no problems with defiance ... Neither of my teenagers drink out with their friends and their friends consider them so straight-laced, but I let my kids have an occassional drink at home ... I split a bottle of champagne with my daughter before her graduation party ... I don't think her friends believed her! I think it is important to relate, and it's different with each kid and each family. Totally understand what you're saying, I think the kids need some space to be themselves.

I don't get the pajamas to school thing either ... or the exposed boxer shorts on boys.

Ravenwood--I always picked my battles carefully, too! Happy to say, it seemed to work well--and even though they're now young adults , I still give my opinion--asked for or not :D

My mom was supposed to get a tattoo with me, but she chickened out and put in the piercing clause instead. You can also pierce erm, the boobsie twins. I assure you, it's a very VERY painful way to rebel. <_< Also, when you're at a mardi gras in college and you've been drinking and there are frat boys with video cameras...it's not such a great idea :ph34r:

They don't leave scars though!!!

It definitely depends on the family. I was a goody-goody too (well, until senior year anyway, even then I didn't drink) and the tradition in my family is that when a girl gets her first period, we celbrate with a glass of red wine. I was allowed to drink wine at family dinners and allowed the occasional beer. Never was a big drinker :)


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

My son wears exposed boxer shorts, but he's 8 and it's because we can find boxer shorts to fit him, but his pants are all too big and too short. We can't find pants small enough in the waist and long enough. He's been wearing boxers since he was 6. I think it's a bit weird. He's the only kid I know who wears boxers.

I haven't really worried about hair color having gluten in it, should I?????!!!!

I use a temporary color that rinses out a little at a time and have learned I have to be very careful of gluten in these products as well. I also have DH and colorings with gluten additives cause my hair to fall out. :angry: Loreal makes a lot of their haircolors gluten-free and I stick with them.
