When your teenager takes the wrong exit~ XXXXXXX STOP!
It's funny as I begin my day and embark down parental bliss with my own teenager and her stubborn, moody, roller coaster of emotion self~ I say to myself today is a new day! We love our kids but don't have to like them all the time and some of the choices they make. So whatever you do; don't feel bad if you don't like your teenager right now. I am almost sure at some point my Mom felt that same way. How do I know? She told me. I knew she loved me and I also knew maybe she was going through menopause and didn't know what she was talking about when it came to me. Stop the presses right there! That's what I thought at the lovely age of 16. Definitely not thinking the same, at the ripe age of xx? Well let's keep my age out of it.. :)
So anyways, what if your teenager takes the wrong exit? Remember this, you didn't always make the wisest decisions. Did you? I can almost bet not. At that age you need to leave room for them to discover them self, as well as make mistakes and correct them. You are to love them unconditionally & be the pillar in their life. Always keep in mind that this is just a phase their going through. It may last for longer than you can even imagine but it won't last forever...
Come back on Thursday the 5th, to see what else I have for you on this subject..
