Hi, single parent of 4. Ages 15,13,12 and 6. Teens are so serious but when my tweens rival with each other dancing to silly tiktok trends can be so silly and funny. I have had obstacles...boy! When times get tough I tell myself "what can I really do right this moment?" Just brainstorm solutions. I have a cousin who I call my therapy...lol. At times I look online for inspiration or advice. I find youtube videos talking about issues with children, teens. I take walks....long walks and watch organizing videos to ease pressures. I am concerned with my oldest child who is 15 and refusing to go to school. So naturally brought me to this site. A tip for new teen parents is let go of the reigns a bit and observe them. I have noticed my tweens fussiness with me and it's always "leave me alone" "I know already" they do not want hugs but it's important to push a hug in. Something about a hug just warms them a little but you know they are quick to shrug you off quickly. Sleep is sooooo good on weekends.
