An uncle's concern

I'm concerned about my niece. The one who rescued Marissa,5 german shepherd pups and others. She's 21. Know's what she wants out of life. But... Sometimes...

She's SENSIBLE,and NONSENSICAL, if that makes any sense.

She's like Johnny Cash's Roseanna-going wild!

Tattoos.

Piercings.

A boyfriend whom I think just isn't qiute RIGHT for her. (Her daddy'd love to fling him via wormhole to Andromeda)

She'll be O.K.,I'm sure. But uncle Kurt's CONCERNED.

I think that the best thing you can do is tell her that you will always be there for her and that you love her. She will make mistakes in life, I can guarantee that.

I have a sister who is seven years younger than me who I feel the same way about at times. It was great seeing my mom's face when my sister came home from college and showed Mom her new tongue ring. ha!

Uncle Kurt, I can relate. I am Aunty Rachel and my niece is almost 17. I worry about her day and night. She's a typical teenager, full of angst and hormones. All you can do is be her friend and help guide her and be there to pick up the pieces when things fall apart.

you're concerned the dark side is going to claim her? (kidding--a friend got free radio give-away tickets to beautiful creatures so i went last night.)

i wouldn't be overly concerned about the tattoos and piercings. they're so much more mainstream now than they were in the 90's. i rarely see a person under 30 without a visible tattoo (or several) or face/body piercing. ditto with pink hair. thank you nicki minaj lol. seriously though, people under 30 are the only ones who look good with that stuff. they should automatically have them sanded off and closed up on that birthday.

as far as the boyfriend, well, that's just going to happen regardless. pretend like you and her father really like him and she'll lose interest. almost no one can pick well when they're 17 (or however old you said) so hopefully they just learn from their mistakes.

Thanks for the input! I think the key is recognition for the GOOD STUFF she does. And she does a lot of good stuff. btw,she HAS had purple hair! It looked natural on her...

you mean natural like kelly osborne? LOL. i can't believe someone so young wants grey hair (or grayish-purple) but it's her hair. (kelly's)

i really, really, really hate that putting colored swatches of red or blue or pink in with light blonde hair like chrisina aguilera does. i know she's not all that old but she could look so much classier.
