Hope this day finds you well and spirits high
All of us people that suffer with some type of pain whether it be multiple surgeries, back problems, mental you get the picture.
How do we teach our kids to be strong? I finally got through to my 21 yr old when she was 17. My son is like his MAMA so problem there with choice of words or standing up for yourself. #:S
The 12 yr old
Tuff TUFF age.
So much is going on inside their little bodies. So many questions. The teasing at school. Having a mom that is sick all the time. Dad raising pretty much everyone.
What do you all do if this goes on in your household??
I have a headache I cannot go to school
I have a belly ache
I have a sore throat.
This one said this to me yesterday.
I tell my kids to stand up for themselves. Say something back. Those kids are "bullies" they do not have a great hom life. They use that as their defense to get attention.
Now with everything she has seen me go through you think she would be strong after seeing my positive attitude.
So lets share our ideas/stories here on how to get through those teenage horrible years, as some of us remember all to well what it was like. I got teased all the way through, because I liked anyone and anybody. They did not have to be popular, have alot of money etc etc. I just liked them for who they were.
What is so different with kids these days
Thanks for listening. I hope this turns out to be a great thread and can help some others to as we start posting.
