But time does whip by way too fast. This week had me slowly boiling in a kettle. I found out it is NOT easy being a parent of a teen. Yes, I had to nip that in the bud right away. Growing up Teen is not to be taken lightly. It actually was hard back then as well. As parents, I think we tend to forget that sometimes. But I remember. Oh, yeah. Been there, done that.
I keep thinking about Maslow's Heirarchy of Needs.
You want what??
Well, as a parent, I am guided by my sense of morality to make sure your basic needs are being met. Hmm...Cell phone. Not
Locking yourself up in room. Nope, not there.
Having to put up with attitude...Nope, definitely not there.
All the "extra" stuff. Is EXTRA.
Okay...feeling so much better.
And for all you 80's teens. Let's go back to memory lane. =)
