Going on 13

...When people told me to enjoy the moments of her childhood because they grow up too fast, I rolled my eyes. As I first struggled as a single mother, then with her diagnosis of her reactive attachment disorder, there were many times her childhood couldn’t end fast enough.

The Boy Next Door

Living in the country has a lot of advantages.  It is quiet, there is plenty of room, and we have very few neighbors.  It’s not that I didn’t like having neighbors when we lived in town, it’s just nice not having to worry that someone will be peeking in the windows when I am dancing around the house…

Somebody's Gotta Be The Bad Cop

 

It's a dirty job, but, unfortunately, somebody's gotta do it.  And this weekend?  Well, I was the one who got stuck being the bad cop.  Cause short people lying straight to my face is just not something that I take too lightly.

 

It all went down on Sunday, which was an unfortunate flurry of activity around here with the kids coming off the high…

Getting to College - Understanding Changes

By Kristin Thomas, College Consultant & Guest Contributor

Part of being a college consultant – and an aspect I love – is attending conferences and visiting universities. As I type from my 11th floor beautiful, ocean view dorm on the University of British Columbia campus, and reflect on the major changes young people are experiencing in this…

Teen Choice Awards Honors: Murder, Sex, Drugs & Hookers

The Teen Choice Awards airs this Sunday on Fox. I can't think of a show less appropriately titled than this one. Almost every one of the movie nominations are rated "R". I understand the whole "pushing the envelope" thing in the entertainment industry, but I really don't know why Nickelodeon (parent company: Viacom) keeps forcing adult content down the throats of kids.



Oh wait, yes I do. Advertising revenue. Instead of an awards show with commercials and product placement geared… Continue

College 101 - Summer Activities for the High School Students

By Kristin Thomas, College Consultant & Guest Contributor

Your teenager might still envision summer as the time completely disengage, but the reality is that more and more college bound students do actually plan ahead and think about what they do with their summers.  What would be the best use of their time? What activity meets their goals and would…

Are You Having Fun With Your Teenager?

Are You Having Fun With Your Teenager? At first glance some of you may think this is a trick question! It isn’t. I ask the question for several reasons.

 

The first is because so many of the parents who contact me for…

Parents...Really Bad Stuff Is Happening On Your Trampoline!

If you have teenagers  and a trampoline, bad things are happening in your yard. And I’m not talking about broken bones and twisted ankles.

There should be a new warning label on trampolines…”WARNING! TEENAGERS WILL MAKE OUT AND MORE ON  A TRAMPOLINE AT NIGHT!” I haven’t figured out what the graphic should look like for…

Prom Shoes Switcheroo

My son Chris had his first prom the other night. 8th

grade prom
. Yeah.



They didn’t have that shit when I was in middle school! But hey, times are a changin’ right?



Wrong!



It’s just another way to get us parents to spend more money and compete with each other to see who buys the best, most expensive dress/tux, etc, etc. I mean the whole idea was that senior prom…

How to Raise a Happy Teen

Possible? Plausible? Urban legend?

Actually no. Listen all you parents of young girls, you don’t have to stress. I have the secret to success and since I have been asked, many times to share it, I thought, what better way than my daughter’s sixteenth birthday week.

First off, throw out the schedules, unless you want your child a stressed out ball of anxiety, screeching monkey, and peeling the wall paper. Micro-managing is not the answer. Forget it. I think the most routine we…

No Really, My Daughter And I Did Got Along Great During Her Teen Years



Several weeks ago a friend who is struggling to find a way to get along with her 14 year old daughter asked me how I coped with raising a teenager. I told her that my daughter and I got along great during her teen years, and actually had fun together. A look of shock mixed with disbelieve came over her face. She asked, “So what is your secret?” Having never given much thought to the subject, I decided to ask my daughter…

Do teenage boys feel fear?

We sat around the kitchen table recently listening to my borrowed teenager recount his scars. It took an hour. My personal favorite was how he rode his bike, while wearing his rollerblades, with no brakes, down a very steep and winding road that I know is heavily trafficked by very fast drivers. And I remembered, again, how his mother, my business partner and close friend, told me of a study which showed that teenage boys go through a period where they are incapable of experiencing fear. They… Continue

What's a mother to do?

My youngest son will be graduating from High School this year and I'm worried. I don't think he has a clue about his future. This is a kid I have had to push all thru school just to graduate. How will he make it thru college? He loves computers and wants to make it a career but I don't think a four year degree is something he can pull off. He has ADHD. That's not an excuse, its a fact. When he is focused on something he likes doing, he can pull of straight A's without a problem. However, when… Continue
