Throwback Thursday Graphic-01Here we are again!  Another Throwback Thursday post!  Since I shared with you earlier this week my thoughts on parenting college kids, I thought it would be fun to see what I wrote several years ago about parenting teenagers.

I have teenagers on the brain today because last night I went back to the girls’ high school to see their drama department, our family’s home away from home for 6 years, perform their fall musical.  Simply put, I love teenagers in general and dramatic teenagers in particular.  It was wonderful to see them all again and see the joy they experience and share with their audience through the work they created.  As I have said before, the teenage years were some of my favorites with my girls and it made me miss them both to be back in that place of so many wonderful memories.

In reading back through this old post, written when my girls were 14 and 16, I stand by everything I wrote, including the first sentence.  You should also know, as you read through it, that we DID survive it and they DID grow out of it….read on to see what I am talking about!
