My step-son is seventeen (17). He's quite the stud muffin, with loads of girls calling all the time. He's a stud, alright.....spending hours in front of the mirror, primping, and heading out.
And leaving a trail a mile long. Used tissues laying on the floor. Socks and undies thrown next to the clothes hamper. A room that needs a grenade set off to make a path.
But, a good kid who stays away from drugs, alcohol, trouble. When he's not romancing the ladies he's on the golf course.
My wife keeps reminding me that my son was the same, back in the early 1990's. Same stories, different kid.
I don't remember being a slob when I was a kid. I'm not a neat freak but I threw clothes in the hamper. I thought my disposition was good.....not moody. My mom is no longer here to ask.
In my former marriage I had a teen step-daughter. She was neat and clean, but really moody and a bit of a loner. And whiny.
Bottom-line question: Which is worse, teen boys or teen girls?
