The Teen Years

Welcome to the teen section of the Single Mom blog. Teenagers are special, wonderful people who still need guidance from mom. It is very important that we continue to be there for our children throughout their teen years. It is also important to try very hard to stay close with them at this period in their lives.

That is what this section will help you to do even though, at times, these tasks may seem impossible. Have faith in the fact that your teenagers do still need you, and that they do love you, even though it may not seem so at times.

In this category, I plan to cover several topics, a few are listed here:

  • Teen Dating
  • Date Violence
  • Time with Friends
  • Earning & Keeping Privileges
  • Life Skills
  • Job Opportunities
  • Volunteer Opportunities
  • And More

Stay tuned, and please feel free to post comments to entries that you have experienced with your own teens. Together, we can all get through the teen years.


P.S. If there are other teen topics that you would like to read about, please post them in the comments section and I will see what I can do. Thank you.
