Raising teens

There are three encouragements to surviving raising teenagers. The first is IT gets better. The second is it GETS better. And the third is it gets BETTER.

The Trifextra challenge this weekend is: “to write a version of Henry James’ ‘Three things..’ quote.”

  1. teenagers or not, I see it getting better some days and new problems arise, but I guess for me I just keep remembering that being a mom was always what I truly wanted so I try not to complain (MUCH)

    I look at my relationship with my mom now and I know that what you wrote is true, it will get BETTER than BETTER. 😉

  2. I’m not quite to the teens yet (oldest is almost eleven.) He’s already getting an attitude with me, so I’m afraid the next few years, I may be chanting, “it gets better…it gets better…”

    1. I always said that when my kids added a digit to their ages, I lost one on my IQ. Around age 16, 17, they lost most of the attitude and I gained back my brain. “It gets better.”

    1. I definitely had my share of those kind of days and wondered if I would live through it… if they would. It’s nice now to have adult kids who are also my friends.
