Tuesday thoughts and confessions of a mom
Hi Friends, What did you implement last week? I understand not all of my readers are parents, but you can use the tools I used in any relationship. My youngest daughter, who is 17, just went to her high school's homecoming party. When I saw her afterwards I just inquired about how it was and she told me a few things. Not much. Not nearly as as much as any mom would want to know;). But I was calm and centered and just curious. Six years ago, this would have looked a lot different. I would have come to her with an expectant and demanding attitude. Then I would have been disappointed when she didn't elaborate. Now, I can accept the moment for what it is. That is called mindfulness. I am happy for her and the fun she had. My advice for moms: It helps having fun on your own, with your friends. Don't live your life through your kids. They are begging you for some independence from you. And they want you to have your own fun, too. Is it uncomfortable? A little. Is it exactly what they are supposed to do as teens? Yep. Confessions of a mom of a teenager: I look on their social media for pictures of the event (Homecoming) they went to I ask if I may post and which picture they would like me to post I wish I could have been a fly on the wall during the event I pray that they remember their common sense and don't do anything they will regret I can't wait to hear more and yes I will ask You are so beautiful I am proud to post because they didn't do anything stupid (that I know of) I think teenagers are awesome I love you to the moon and back and therefore asked if me posting this is ok
Do you want to have more peace and joy with your teen?
