Does this mean you are clowning? Hey there is an art to being a good clown. Or is it doing family skits? Or are you in theater?
My kids after getting out when very young were little "hellians" but then again, they were while in the family too. ;)
They got wild and partied hard and early on for some years and then got straightened out when they realized that lifestyle was going nowhere and that help was there when they wanted to further their education etc. The eldest did this largely on his own! He buckled down and got jobs where he got into management and had a strong work ethic and then got student loans to get into his profession today in the medical field.
The other two pretty much followed suit, but with more help. All are very creative and successful systemites today.
I am certain that had they stayed in the family, their natural rebellion would have been met with retraining camps that would have driven them over the brink. Not only that, their opportunities to choose what they wanted to do in life would have been severely limited. I am very glad we got out when we did. How old are your kids today? What are their interests?
