Great image! Amazing enough he posed for you, I suppose!
I have three 17 year old boys (17 at the end of the month technically) -- no goths, emos, scenes, or whatever. Don't know why. I have one that wants to start his own hedge fund, live in a big apartment in NYC and wants to go to Harvard or Stanford. One that is thinking about the Colorado School of Mines to study Fusion, and one that spends a lot of time on the computer playing games (not a full-blown gamer, but close, so I do have a 'something', I guess).
Definitely not Leave It to Beaver -- I was a SAHD, wife divorced me when the boys were old enough that she thought they could handle it, and the boys bounce back between us every two weeks.
