Re: HELP: Please tell me about modern teenage girls. my 19 yo cousin is coming to live with me.
OP- If you have no kids of you're own , you REALLY should just send her home .
My kids are 25 & 27. I MADE my Son & Daughter EARN THEIR CURFUE TIMES ...BY EARNING MY TRUST!!!

Truly ...they did! Now, My kids were very good kids & EARNED THE RIGHT at 16 & 17 to have a 2 am curfue on the weekends and midnight on school night b/c they never missed school.

I was a single Mother working my azzzzz off 70-80 a week ( WHEN A PERSON STILL COULD!!!) they knew if they screwed up & I found about it they would be walking with 3 feet...2 of their own and 1 of mine right in their A$$!!!! Because I wasn't dealing with any Bullchit!

So that was how I handled the whole "curfew" thing.
They had to work their way up the ladder so to speak.
First I'd set curfew for 10, and also maybe a few other things and if they proved their reliability to me then we built an even higher level of trust & increased our friendship each time too.
It IS hard work and DEDICATION!!! You will have to work at it just like you work at a job every day. ...BUT IF YOU STICK IT OUT...THEIR ARE REWARDS...just saying.
It won't be easy. In fact , it will be very hard. Hope you fasted & prayed long on this one!
Good Luck! ~ oh Lordy~… LoL

What could a 16/17 year old kid possibly need to be out until 2AM for that is good?!

As an aside to the reply regarding the differences between poster and her upcoming guest, that one difference is the 19year old is hornier than the 40year old.............get real. There is nothing hornier than a woman during her forties.

Ever have a conversation with a bowl of oatmeal? That is the level of intelligence I find in most people under 30. Obviously there are exceptions, but most people in that age range seem to try to compensate for their lack of social skills with being proficient in "texting"...

When she gets there go out for a drive and give her a tour of the area. Then stop off at a nice restaurant for dinner and there get to know her a bit. After convo is going well easily lead into your "ground rules", but frame it in a way that it's just some specifics so that you can both get along well. Don't list the rules off like a drill sergeant and most importantly include her and ask her questions if she is cool with them. Give her the option for her own opinion so that you can compromise together.

Only rule really: "don't touch my tomato plants, unless you're bringing them in for me because doom has happened, and I'm not around to bring them in myself."

Good luck!

You're talking to the wrong under 30s. There are many smart under 30s. You forget this generation grew up with the Internet so it's information overload. Knowledge a mile wide, often only an inch deep.

MODERN teenage girls, lol. Reasonable house rules that apply to everyone in your home should suffice.
She's 19. She's legally an adult.

you lay down the things you wont accept in you house and as long as she is responsible dont be to concerned with her life she will come to you and talk to you if she doesnt feel like she has to. its important to let her be an adult and make mistakes for herself but to also be there for her when she needs a friend mother or guidance give her the responsibility of owning herself

Re: HELP: Please tell me about modern teenage girls. my 19 yo cousin is coming to live with me.
i'm a 40 yo woman with a nice little beach house. a 19 year old cousin who i've never met is coming to stay with me until she finds a job. (apparently she didn't realize that college wasn't free). i'm doing this as a favor for my mom who can't take her in. the kid's parents and grandparents are all hot messes and can't take her in either. she was living with her boyfriend all during high school, but he's moving to mexico with his family.

it's been a long time since i was a teenager, and when i was one ,i always had a job and put myself thru college pretty easily.i partied a bit, but in general was a very good kid.
(but the 90's were a TOTALLY DIFFERENT TIME than now)

HOWEVER, I HAVE NO FREAKING IDEA WHAT 19 YO'S ARE LIKE NOW.

what can i expect from her?

all i know about her is that she's not very bright and has been called "hard-headed" more than once by my mom.

please give me all the teenager advice you can give me.
i'm kind of scared.
gasp
HELP!

Expect a confused helpless little girl with no moral boundaries looking for some firm guidance. Tell her life's rules and how to succeed via the simple lessons of discipline and self control.

OP, someone so dumb that they think that college is free???

Suggest she join the military - seriously. They will straighten her out (if she can get in).

Type a list of rules NOW. Send them to her before she comes.

If you don't have rules, people make up their own (that's why the banks do what they like these days)

So that she knows what the rules are.
Print them out and put on the fridge

eg
You pay for ....

TV is off by ....

MAKE SURE SHE CAN'T USE YOUR PHONE - it's not just teenagers - a man I know who used to stay at rich people's houses ran up a $10,000 phone bill he never paid.

More rules - Let's see...

List of chores for her to do. Seriously.

Think worst case scenario, just in case.

I think job core sends them out for casual work. Just a place where they can make a few bucks without really having a job.

That's how I bought myself a playstation 3 when I couldn't find work

She's just going to run around all night smoking dope and drinking and having sex with no one to say anything. Oh and she'll be using your money...too...don't expect any rent...don't expect her to get a job... Do expect her to find a boyfriend and have him move in too...


Good luck...I'd tell her to hit the bricks before she shows up...or get some fringe benefits out of it... banana2
