As you said, it can be uncomfortable and reveal Once upon a time there was a girl who really loved Pigs it was me the end shirt. But by recognizing the discomfort as an opportunity for self-reflection and open-minded discussion, us adults can actually learn & grow while validating our teens and helping them to learn & grow as well. Thank you both, as all three of my beautiful creatures are young adults now, I had kinda forgotten how passionate I was about this til I read Rachel’s post and it all came out lol! This is insightful. I like what you say about looking inward on what you needed to change. Oh yes, I believe this could be the single most important thing my children taught me! If my stuff is sorted I can stay kind and strong, but when triggered, I just went to reactions! Today my daughter turns 13, I couldn’t be prouder of the person she is becoming.
A time there was a girl who really loved Pigs it was me the end shirt, hoodie, sweater and v-neck t-shirt
Best A time there was a girl who really loved Pigs it was me the end shirt
I want to laugh with her, Once upon a time there was a girl who really loved Pigs it was me the end shirt, advise her and be with her through all the good and occasional challenge because she makes my life so much better. I’m not scared, I’m happy for her she is an incredible teenager. In an interview yesterday I found myself on a long and winding tangent about how I wish the parent folklore on teens would stop. I’ve been working with tweens and teens for nearly 20 years and I find this age group to be full of insight, big ideas, compassion, and kindness. Are there ups and downs? Sure. Are there struggles? Yes. Does bullying happen? Definitely. But labels speak more of the people doing the labelling than of the people being labelled. There are some incredible kids in this world – that should be the story we share.
