From Teenager To Kid Again

Lauren ONeill Tweens & Teens

My son is back. The one I understand. The one who wants to be around me, wants me to know about everything going on in his life. I know he might not walk through the door tomorrow, but I’ll spend as much time with him as I can, today.

In Between You And Me

Kim Ruland Norgren Tweens & Teens

So what’s my job now?  To laugh with them I guess, about life and things we shouldn’t take too seriously.  To care about something enough that it drives you. To teach them not to depend on me, but still need me.  And how to be independent, but value community and family. Teach them how to be big brothers to their sister and how to figure out what they believe, stand up for it, but not be intolerant of others.
