The parent bloggers who write about raising tween and teen kids have been prolific this month but I have managed to select a few of my favourite posts to share with you. I loved this touching tribute on Reflections From Me for a daughter as she becomes a teenager. This is a major milestone for all our children and is a time when we reflect on their childhood.
Next up is a brilliant list from It’s a Drama which will help you recognise the current animal form that your teen son has morphed into. Have a read, it’ll make you chuckle and you may recognise you own son. As a Mum of three girls I can only imagine!
I loved the top tips for teens from Thirsty Daddy, so much that I am actually thinking of printing them out and sticking them at the foot of my stairs, if I am brave enough.
Blogging about teen kids is not that easy and there are some wise words about social media sharing over at Expat Life With Chicken Ruby which we should all heed.
The importance of body image to young people is never far from the news and from the minds of parents. I especially likes this post from Not Just Another Mum which makes some very important points. Whilst on the subject of teen emotions, this gorgeous post from Old House in the Shires gives us lots of reasons why having a pet is good for your family. If you don’t have a pet yet, this may persuade you. Whilst my post shares my initial thoughts on the high school prom. There will be more thoughts to follow soon!
Finally, if you want a really good laugh to lighten the exam tension, you must read this from Everyone’s Buck Stop Here. I guarantee it will make you laugh out loud. Good luck for the remainder of the exams everyone!
