Parenting teens is NOT EASY. We need all the help we can get. Let's not continue to struggle and complain and get upset. Let's learn about what they are going through. It's different than what we went through on so many levels. I'm sharing what I'm learning.
"Coming Out" - a sort of 'How to' guide from a teen for teens (and preteens) and heck anyone who is realizing they are attracted to their same gender. My lesbian daughter Claire shares her experiences and gives advice on how to finally be free by telling everyone you're a lesbian, gay or bisexual.
This post is about why I only have one child. It wasn't a difficult decision once I analyzed all of the factors surrounding having more children. There was a lot of pressure but I had to do what was best for me.
There is no "rule book" for parenting kids of any age but as the mom of a teenager, I've learned a few things and I feel compelled to share. I'm certainly no expert but maybe I'm doing something right because on a regular basis, parents/school faculty will tell me how impressed they are with my daughter. No this is not a bragging "my-kid-is-wonderful" post.
