My period normally comes like clock work. My last period was October 20, 2011. I do have unprotected sex with my spouse almost on a daily basis. But i have yet to recieve my monthly period for November and its December the 4th now. I have took 3 home pregnancy test that has all three outcomes of negative. I sleep alot as well as eat. Is it possible for me to be pregnant? Do I need to have blood work done instead of pee?

I don't think that works out. If he feels like he is somehow paying for the car, he will have more attitude about having a right to the car. It's your car, he's your kid, and attitude should get him FEWER privileges, not more. Tell him so.

My kids have never even tried the 'everyone else is' argument, but I think if they did I'd make some smart comment like, "Well, that's just what makes me special."


It doesn't have to be all or nothing. Why not let him drive during certain hours and only to certain places if he can pay for gas or part of the insurance? I think working is a good thing for a lot of young people. Especially over the summer. If he has a license and nothing to do, and you are at work during the day, it will be too tempting to go joy riding etc.
