So I thought I was crazy. After all, my daughter is only 11…but it turns out I am not crazy—my daughter is changing from my small little girl into a budding teen. And the amazing changes that take place in the teen’s brain are astonishing!
I wish I listened to this podcast last year when she was just 10 to help me prepare for this new phase of her life. Perhaps I would have helped her enter it with more patience. But better late than never, right?!
I hope this podcast helps each of you, as well, as it speaks of all of those crazy changes taking place in their brains—all the pruning going on.
Seriously…we just had a melt-down crying battle over hair on Monday. I didn’t listen to this until Tuesday—MAN! It would have really helped me as Mommy on Monday had I known a few of these reasons behind her reactions and how I aggravated it instead of helping her through it.
Anyhow, I guess what I’m really saying is this: if you have a boy or girl either entering their teen years or are SMACK in the middle of them, this podcast will help you be a better and more understanding parent!
Enjoy the listen and be encouraged!
