I was a nightmare to my mother when I was a teenager. I've literally apologized to her for all of the horrible things I did,during those years. I never did drugs or drank,but I ran away at 14,and blamed her for everything from the abusive step-father to the eating disorder that had a hold on me for nearly 5 years{I just stopped eating for the most part}. Have you done this? Maybe felt remorse for things you've done during those years? Please share your thoughts on this. Lela

I am done apologizing to my mother for my teen years. That was over when I turned 25. By then I had told her every sordid detail and that made her ears burn. I now await my children's confessions.

no i have not but how are things with your mother now? if things are better and you both have a good relationship, why do you want to dig up the past. you could talk about it and later laugh at some things but she loves you no matter what you did in the past, its how you are now that you should be thinking of.

No I havent and I have no intention of doing so actually...if anyone should be apologizing it should be her to me with my sister next in line....Not that it will ever happen mind you..then again my sister might come around if our mum were to kick it before either of us....

I have never apoligized for my teen years. As I was a good child. I spent it working two jobs when I wasn't in school or babysitting. But my sisters on the other hand was another story. They need to apoligize to my momma for thier actions. I do have a teen right now that is testing my patience thin.

Now that I'm thirty and have kids of my own, I let go of all the anger I had towards my mother. I came to relize that she was doing the best job that she could. So I pray everyday that my kids won't have to apologize for things they do growing up, because if they act out then maybe I screwed up somewhere along the way.
