I am happy to report that after 2 1/2 months of counseling, my daughter is doing much better.

The counselor is awesome, and they hit it off so well that she has opened up a lot. She is also taking melatonin to help her sleep, which is also helping.

The change I see in her is simply amazing!!

Hi,
I have an almost 14 year old daughter, and middle school and puberty are just hard. Hoping to find some new ideas to help her get through it.

Hi @Curious87 and welcome to ReachOut Parents! 

 

Puberty is such a hard time for teens (and families!) and we hope you are able to find some support and experiences of other parents who are going through something similar.

Re: New member

long story ,arent they all ? My wife decided she didnt want to be married any more after 22 yrs. Have been separated for over 12 months and caring for my 10yr old son 50 % of the time . He makes me laugh nearly every time he comes to stay as he has a wicked sense of humour. 

As to parenting being stressful I must be lucky, compared to the stress of the family breakup parenting seems relatively easy, ha ha I hear you say. 

As to coping well no immediate family close by and as I am in my 60's all my friends kids are grown up so no fresh thoughts are coming from them other than , oh don't worry she'll be right or just get on with it. A long term friend who has no children sent me the link to this site and suggested I have a look. I am looking forward to learning with and from  the other parents engaged on this forum.The best thing about weekends , well when my son is here weekends always the best time as the ongoing battle of getting my son to school has a temporary truce and we get to know each other a bit better by exploring each others ideas as to what might be fun and what needs to get done 

cheers

Hey @sidneysdad 

 

Welcome to the forums. We are glad to have you.

 

A separation would not be easy, so we're happy you are reaching out for support. It's wonderful to hear that you have such an amazing relationship with your son - it must make things a lot easier. 

 

If you ever want to talk about any concerns regarding your child or anything about parenting in more detail, feel free to start a thread here or here

Re: New member? Introduce yourself here!

Hi, My kids are 9 and 12.

I try to keep stress levels down by eating at the table every night and asking positive open questions. Doesn't always work, but we try!

I reached out because my son is struggling to adapt to high school.

I am just as nervous about the kids entering teenage years and am in no position to offer advice!!

The best thing about weekends for us is doing different things together; we live in a great part of the country and try to take advantage of it.
