teenagers can vary a LOT in personality in families and in general, especially relatives or siblings. I can never understand why or how. I was a really emotional and angry as a teen. I always kept to good moral standards, and it was only because of emotional pain and medical conditions that I lashed out at my parents, and on the other hand, my brother he has always been the most mellow thing around, he got into trouble occasionally sometimes and still does, but he is really even tempered and laughs off things. I always say, since I was the 1st, I absorbed all the crazyness in my mom's tummy and there wasn't much left over for my brother :P
Sometimes parents need to have some tough love to protect their kids from danger, I agree.
Anyhow, my rant: Come on food! be done already my tummy wants you!! (okay, not much of a rant ;) )
