I’m enjoying getting back into the routine of Tuesday Topics; I hope you are too. This week’s question comes from Jen who asked,
How do you find the balance of allowing older children and teens from “hard places” to have freedoms/privileges when they haven’t shown the same level of respect that you would expect from your other children?
I’m sure there are lots of us who are dealing with older kids and teens who want to be treated like other kids their age, but their maturity and behavior don’t meet the expectations we would normally have. How do we parent them in a positive and productive way?
We want to hear from you! Please don’t be shy; leave a comment and share your thoughts.
If you have a question you would like me to share as a Tuesday Topic, please email it to me at [email protected] If you have a blog and would like me to link your question to your blog, please share a link to it as well.
I am loading up my four homeschoolers and heading to Spokane for orthodontist appointments this morning. I have a feeling it won’t be our most productive school day, but I’m actually looking forward to the drive and hopefully time to think. The sun is up and the morning looks beautiful; as long as Sunshine doesn’t get carsick, it should be a good drive. I won’t be home to approve comments for several hours, so don’t worry if yours doesn’t show up until this afternoon.
Have a great Tuesday, friends. See you soon!
