5 things I wish for my teen

Posted on January 20th, 2011

This post was originally written for Yahoo’s Shine, a place where people post blogs and chat and whatnot and where they have inexplicably made me a parenting guru. The assignment was to write about 5 things we wish for our kids.

As the parent of a teen, I feel like I have very little time left to mold my son

    That is sooooo beautiful!!!
    I am a teen, and I wish that my mother or father had the courage to speak words of magic, like you just did, to me. It would have made a huge difference in the way that I see them. If they had said something like this, I would not want to rebel against them, in every way possible…
    Thank you once again for your beautiful words, they are very powerful to someone like me, whether they make me cry, or laugh, or dream, thank you!

    Thank you, Shelby. You know, sometimes, we parents forget to tell our kids how wonderful they are. And then we keep it inside. And I have to admit, if I hadn’t been given this topic as an assignment, I don’t know that I ever would have told my son all of it at once.Usually we talk, but we don’t ever sit down and say, “here’s 5 things I want you to know.”

    So your parents may be thinking this, but not saying it or not say it all at once.

    And also, Shelby, I was a lot like you as a teen.Very rebellious. I learned the hard way that rebelling hurt me more than it did my parents. Take care, sweetie. I love that you read my work and I hope you continue to do so.

    Wow, thank you Laurie! It is very inspiring to read your posts, and then attempt to learn from your actions, or to apply them into my own life. Life is such a challenge when one does not know what to do, but then thanks to the internet, I can come here, and get my head screwed back on straight.

    I think that one of the things that I love so much about your blog, is that I can see what a mother would see or think, in response to an action, or lifestyle. I feel that when I visit this site, I can look behind the scenes into the odd world of a mother, and get a better understanding of the way they work.

    PS, I will always come back to this site again and again, because it is something special.
