Not everyone has teens in midlife, but most of us do.
I’ve been avoiding studying this, like, sheesh, I loved studying pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding, that’s my thing….. But then I had to study non-punitive parenting, ages and stages, yada yada. And that was a huge transformation.
So now, for about a year, it’s been niggling me that things are changing again, and we have a teenager, and soon we’ll have more, and I need to get myself in a better place with understanding what’s going on and how I can parent well through this stage. Because it’s becoming …. hard.
So yesterday, at a used book store, I started this course of study with two books.
I also want to read Paul Tripp’s Age of Opportunity.
So I’ve started Parenting Teens with Love and Logic, and I’m learning things already. Imagine that.
