When I started thinking about my blog I knew the first person I had to write about would be my own mom. She is my role model in every way. The way she raised both me and my sister I will carry on in the way I raise my kids. I still don’t know how she put up with me during my rebellious teen years, but she somehow managed to always let us be independent while structured at the same time. What you have to understand is at the age of 12 my whole family moved to London, England. So my teenage years were spent in Europe. As a teenage this was incredible, as a mother I cannot imagine what it was like! I still speak to her 10 times a day and freak out that I won’t be anywhere as near a good mother as she is!

Raising teenage Daughters

  • In order for  children to learn how to be responsible and independent they need to be trusted by their parents and given freedom to act accordingly. If they make a mistake,  add some parameters. If they don’t have a chance to make some of their own choices how will they ever learn? Just remember, an adolescent has no idea what the future means until 18 years old. Until then, “the Future” is lunchtime for them.
  • It’s important while your children are formulating friendships to not take your eye off of them. The wrong type of friend can change your child’s life forever. Do your best to meet the parents, in particular the Mothers. This is so you have an idea of whose houses they are going to.
  • My mom wanted us to feel responsible and let us meet people, make friends, and let us learn responsibility, at the same time making sure we were with the right people
  •  Encourage your children to be honest with you regardless of the consequences, and you will do the same with alot of love and understanding always.
