Sometimes, I swear, I just feel like throwin' in the towel.
When I daughter was growing up, I really worried about how good of a parent I was.
But, then a couple years ago, I started realizing I did a pretty good job.
She cares about people and has manners.
She is responsible.
She doesn't have the super great school grades her cousins do, but she has been improving.
But, she calls herself stupid and it breaks my heart.
She says she hears a little voice in the back of her head telling her she can't do it.
And I am just at a loss as what to do.
Honeyman and I tell her she is smart.
No, I think I am just going to have to start the " you are smart" campaign.
Just keep telling her until she believes it.
So, either I didn't do so hot after all.
Or it's just an insecurity thing that comes with all teenagers.
All teenagers seem to have a hangup about themselves and this one is apparently my daughter's.
When I tell her she's not stupid, it's like banging my head against the wall.
