Tweens, teens, (and the parents who love them!) go through a lot between the ages of 9 through 17. There’s growing societal pressure, shifting friendships, mounting responsibility, and body changes. Fun, right?! In Episode 358, Meagan and Sarah pick up where we left off last week’s conversation, but this time it’s all about the older kids. While acknowledging every child is different and being sensitive to our kids’ privacy, we remember the sweetness of kids just-on-the-cusp of growing up and tell stories about adolescent awkwardness and attitudes. It can be a bit of a rocky journey, but every teen eventually comes into their own. Whether you’re in the thick of it with us or want a fun peek ahead, this episode is a great reminder that kids–and motherhood–are ever-evolving.
