After successfully navigating prom season with three daughters who attended a combined seven proms, I began a new chapter of parenting, this time from the boy’s perspective, despite his very best efforts to keep me in the dark.
These two teens living in my house, have survived every parenting mistake I have made. No one is perfect; we are all learning as we go. And that is the one lesson, the most important lesson I have learned; as long as I am doing the best I can do, they are going to thrive.
Today, my teen will leave school at 10 a.m. and participate in a 17 minute walkout on the one-month anniversary of the school shooting that left 17 students dead in Parkland, Florida on Valentine’s Day.
Spring is here and with it the time-honored mother/daughter prom dress shopping expedition. An entire day of bonding—what could be better?
