In the parenting category every day,
I see a myriad of posts on,
Potty training, sleep difficulties, schooling issues, etc.
relating to young children.
Do these children never grow up?
If so do they become perfect teenagers?
I read about the isolation, despair, sleepless nights and
endless worry that comes with parenting a young child.
I have read a million times the posts asking for help
with these issues.
Every new parent is seeking advice and comfort from others who know.
Why do teenagers parents not ask for help?
Do they not have teens like mine or my friends?
Where are the posts…
“Help, my teenager is out of control!”
“I worry as my teen has no friends”.
“My teen has violent mood swings, I think he’s taking drugs”.
“My teen came home drunk”.
“I need advice, my teenager ignores all house rules”.
“I think my daughter/son is having sex”.
“Is it wrong not to like your son/daughter?”
What is stopping us asking?
Social networking is portraying what we wish to be true.
Enough with the cooking and baking and perfect family image,
Say it as it is…
Help… I need help….
My teenagers are driving me insane…
Can someone please help?
