Teenagers and burgeoning sexuality. The conversations are becoming more difficult, but we’ll keep having them, because communication and knowledge are key.
Some mornings leave you only the option to laugh or cry. With a hat tip to Dr. Seuss, I’m attempting the former while channeling my kids.
My teens are growing up, and in some ways everything seems different, now. In plenty of other ways, though, it’s all still very familiar.
Having teenagers in the house is a solemn death knell of romance for the parents. And they’re not even sorry about it, either.
Today’s kids are being pushed to pick out their career paths way too young, I think, and I’d rather we teach them to keep an open mind and adventuresome spirit.
Much as all the Commandments follow from the first one, I feel like all friendship rules flow from “be nice,” but it gets more complicated as the kids grow up.
