Teenage Daughter

WHEN MY DAUGHTER Eve was little, we were inseparable. I'd listen to her talk about her imaginary boyfriend in Florida. I'd hold long conversations on her pink feather toy phone. I even played jacks with her once or twice, because seeing her smile was worth every bounce of the ball. But girls grow up, and when they do, they become different people. It's not as drastic a transformation as Linda Blair's in "The Exorcist," but it's pretty darn close. In fact, if you put a regular teenage girl in a lineup with a chick possessed by Beelzebub, you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference.

Anika Pitts sometimes feels ambivalent about the young woman who stabbed her teenage daughter to death. She notes, with compassion, that the jailed woman is now unable to hold her toddler. But she still feels her daughter's killer is getting off easy. Pitts' 16-year-old daughter, Bryasia, was killed in September 2010 during a fight, but there will be no trial. Prosecutors made a deal with Ebony Rand-Crosson, who was 18 when she stabbed Bryasia Pitts. They allowed Rand-Crosson to plead guilty to aggravated manslaughter.

EVERY DAY for the last 17 years, a desolate stretch of Hope Street has haunted Paulette Smith as she passed high above the North Philadelphia block during her commute to work on the El. It was on that gray, litter-clogged block near Montgomery Avenue where her teenage daughter's battered, lifeless body was found inside an abandoned house in October 1996, two days after a stranger had snatched her off the street only steps away from the safety of...

So often, when I tell people that I have a 16-year-old daughter, I am met with looks of sympathy. Some even say, "I don't envy you," or "That must be a challenge. " My usual response is to smile and nod in agreement. We all know that living with a teenage girl is no picnic. There are the mood swings - putting her head on your shoulder one minute, and flipping back her hair, rolling her eyes, and stomping off to her room the next. There are even those days when she says, "If you ever think I will care about you, myself or anything else, you are wrong.

After Lori Hummel killed an ironworker in 2010, she showed up for an interview with investigators wearing a pair of Skechers, one of which appeared to be stained with blood, authorities said. Hummel, mother of a teenage daughter, wasn't a suspect at the time, but that quickly changed. The blood, authorities discovered, belonged to Thomas Carbin, a burly 54-year-old who was found stabbed multiple times in his neck in his apartment above a Westville bar. On Thursday, Hummel, 41, was sentenced in Superior Court to 24 years in state prison for the killing.

Jack McMahon, Kermit Gosnell's defense lawyer, will have a new job next week: trying to save his client's life. Gosnell, found guilty Monday of three counts of first-degree murder in the abortion "house of horrors" case, will face the jury again in the death-penalty phase of his trial, set to begin next Tuesday. The prosecution will present evidence for aggravating circumstances that call for Gosnell's execution. Being convicted of more than one murder is an aggravating circumstance as defined by statute.

Imagine you're asleep and you wake up to a man looming over the bed you share with your teenage daughter. He forces you and your daughter into your living room, where he sexually assaults both of you with an object from your kitchen. That's what happened to a 40-year-old woman and her 17-year-old daughter during a home invasion about 6 a.m. yesterday, according to the Lindenwold Police Department. Police said that the man who did it, and who authorities also suspect may have broken into another apartment unit just hours before, needs to be put away.

DEAR ABBY: My elderly uncle and aunt have a son-in-law who - to put it mildly - spins tall tales. "Tom" has been everywhere, done everything and insists on telling anyone who will listen all about it. He speaks many languages fluently (until someone addresses him in one of them) and has had countless adventures in various countries, although he can't locate them on a map. My uncle and aunt have bought two cars for their financially unstable daughter and this phony. Both times, Tom insisted on maintaining them himself (another of his legendary skills)

Kathleen Rickert North, 67, a widow who met Mr. Right at a church support group and celebrated with a Bermuda honeymoon, died Sunday at Lower Bucks Hospital in Bristol. Mrs. North, a resident of Levittown, joined TLA (To Live Again) after her husband, George Rickert, died in 1985. The support group for widows and widowers meets the third Monday of every month at St. Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church in Levittown. In June 1987, that's where Kathleen Rickert, widow, met Charles E. North, widower.

* "The Exes," 10:30 tonight, TV Land. * "I Hate My Teenage Daughter," 9:30 tonight, Fox 29. YOU MIGHT think it's casting that makes a TV show a hit. A big name does have a certain draw when it comes to the initial episode of a new series. After that first date interest is gone, the success or failure falls squarely on the writers' shoulders. Think of it this way: Jerry Seinfeld has the acting skills of a walnut. That didn't stop him from starring in one of the best comedies of all time, because the writing was so phenomenal.

Question: I'm an old-school dad with Christian morals. I have three daughters, 14, 18 and 19. Only the eldest is dating. I tell them every day I love them. I have told my daughters for a few years that if they get into a relationship, move in with a guy, and decide later to get married, I will not pay for the wedding or reception. I would go to the wedding and give them away but nothing else. That is the consequence for their action. If they do things right, I will pay. Also, I've told them several times that I will not raise my grandchildren because of their poor choices (I would in case of death or illness, etc.)
