Re: New member? Introduce yourself here!

Hi I’m new. 

Checking out the dates of some topics I noticed not many posts have been added here for a while but I’m hoping to get some advice from someone.

my kids are 12, 10 and 7 all girls. Something they’ve recently done that was quite funny was they brought in the washing from the line, however they used the items and dressed themselves up as funny characters. They were laughing so much while they were doing it.

something I do to keep stress levels down is listen to up beat music, I often have positive quotes around my house and indulge in beer and lots of it!

what led me to reach out today is not knowing what else to do for my daughter who has difficult behaviours. Looking up on the internet and finding this site hoping someone might have ideas?

i know that teenagers aged from 14 up until they are into their 20s are very selfish and only think about them. They are unable to think about how things effect others, they physically lack the part of the brain that assists with the recognition as it is not properly formed until mid 20s.

best thing about weekends is spending time with my family.

Hi @Cinna101 welcome to ReachOut and thank you for sharing Smiley Happy Your kids sound adorable and great to hear they had fun dressing up as different characters. Listening to music is a great way to de-stress, something I do too. It sounds like you are after some advice in regards to some difficulty you are experiencing with your daughter. What is happening for you specifically? You are most welcome to post a new thread about this as it will allow other members to see your new post and be able to provide support too Heart We're here to listen and support you.

I have a 13, 16 and 19 year old and they make me laugh when they talk rubbish and make up new words.

 

I don't keep the stress levels down well but I do try to sleep well, find time for myself and talk to others.

 

I've visited ReachOut often but my eldest still suffers anxiety and panic attacks so am looking to prevent that with the other two if possible.

 

Encourage your children to sleep. Nap even. They may not like hugs but you can still say, "Would you like a hug? No? Well just know I would love to give you one. Always on offer"

 

I love not having to go to school on weekends?
