Let’s just take a moment of silence for parents everywhere. I can think of no harder job than being a parent. Wait, maybe . . . nope! No harder job! It is filled with joy and pain; love and exhaustion. It doesn’t give you holidays or vacations. Even if you take a vacation without your kids, you are likely to be thinking about them while you’re gone.
At Know Better Grow Better we are going to take the month of September to talk about parenting. You can expects posts full of honesty, grace, and hopefully some humor. If we’re not laughing, we’ll be crying, right?
This week I went back to an oldie, but a goodie. Five Things Teenagers Want Their Parents To Know. (You can go read this post by clicking on the title.) This list came from 16 years of working with teenagers as a counselor, and mentor. I wrote this list so I could go back and refer to it when my kids are teenagers, and I’m wonder what the heck happened to them.
I am also super excited about this month, because right now I am going through an amazing online course in parenting that is flipping my heart upside-down in the best possible way. At the end of the month, I’ll be sharing how you can also have access to this amazing resource.
So let’s dive in. Parenting certainly isn’t for sissies!!
