“It’s getting hard to be someone but it all works out.”
Hi all! So I realize my daughter is only 15 months old and I have time to work on this but it’s been on my mind so here goes. How do parents of older children do it!?! I think about my years in junior high and high school and I don’t want that for my daughter. The angst of not being in the popular group. The angst of not being a perfect size 2. The crushing feeling of being turned down the first time I got enough nerve to ask a boy out. The awfulness of my first heartache. I’m not saying it was as all bad. I was never truly bullied. I was a decent student and am a successful adult. But those teen years were brutal. How do you navigate your kids through them? Any success stories or what-not-to-do tips!!??
