so did you use big dogs or rabid wolverines to keep the boys away from your daughters? 

That, my friend, was and continues to be a tough one.  Just as my daughters were turning 14 and 16, their mom left us.  It's tough enough raising girls a single dad it's a REAL challenge!  I just told the boys UP FRINT what I expected.  I guess I scared em but although I'll never tell the girls, I was scared too!

Hey, don't be too quick to 'put me on a pedestal'.  I've screwed up plenty when it comes to raising my kids.  I just gotta keep reminding myself to make descisions based on what is best, in the long run, for my kid(s).  I've had times when my daughter(s) wouldn't talk to me for days, even weeks.

No matter what you do, keep your kids' best interst at heart and someday, maybe years from the 'tough times' they'll respect you and your stance...I hope!

Beautiful family you have there illinoisdeerhunter! It is great that you got your boy into hunting and were able to at least get your girls into fishing. A little Birdie told me that if you answer the door with a 12 gauge pump and strike up a friendly conversation with the young man about how many football fields you can hit your target from with your deer rifle as well as mentioning how you expect him to conduct himself with your daughter, etc, that it will have a profoundly positive affect on the young man and he acts quite respectfully. Again, a little Birdie told me this. @--0--0125 ;D @--0--0124

Also, you look younger than I expected. It must be all that wisdom you have acquired doing a great job raising your kids by yourself. :) --9-8-7

Great picture I don't envy you one bit two teenage daughters and you single sounds like a tough job for sure. I only have one son but I am also alone in the raising process but at least I was a boy and can relate to my sons problems with girls I would be lost. Great job
