My oldest daughter starts college and my youngest begins high school this week. The girls are fine but I’m a big hot mess. I don’t know where the time went or how I can be old enough (wise enough?) to have children this old.
It seems like JUST the other day my girls started Kindergarten. Really. It went that quickly.
If you are a parent or a teenager and you are experiencing back-to-school panic—I have a few life preservers for you.
Dig, if you will, a few of my favorite moms of teenagers who will make you laugh—and cry. These ladies will help you through the parenting stage called the third circle of hell, aka raising teenagers.
My friend Liz Thompson is a mom of teens with a great list on Twitter you should follow. Check out Liz’s Teen Raisers list Twitter list for a mix of parents and other experts with good advice about Teens.
Liz Thompson’s blog This Full House should be on your MUST READ list if you have teenagers.
Jenn Satterwhite is an experienced wrangler of teenagers! Check out Jenn’s blog Mommy Needs Coffee or Follow @JavaJenn on Twitter. Jenn has a great list on Twitter called Old School Bloggers with tons of moms with teens on it.
My friend Jessica Gottlieb has a teen with a tween on the way. Follow @jessicagottlieb on Twitter or read her blog over on JessicaGottlieb.com. Jess tells it like it IS—her blog is not for those who shy away from controversy. Jessica’s Twitter list of MOMS is a great resource if you’re looking for moms to follow on Twitter.
In between freaking out about how old my girls are and how fast things are changing—I created a Twitter List called Moms of Teens & Tweens that includes some parenting experts (besides mothers).
I have more resources for parents of teens and tweens but I’d love to know as many as possible. I need as much help as I can get!
