All tagged teen struggles
The teenage years are such a struggle for us and them. I see the pressure my daughter is under and I try very hard to understand. Physical touch is one of my love languages but it's not my daughter's, so it's a delicate balance of figuring out what she needs.
"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 is the story of my teenage years (circa 1983) and how I can't believe I made it out alive. Remarkably though, some good did come out of it as I am more prepared to help my daughter through her teenage years. Join me in a trip down memory lane.
