Insights to Live By….

I’ve always told our teenage boys, “Don’t peak in high school.” However, with all the hoopla and attention we adults give to this age group, it’s easy for them to believe they’re celebrities. The more I’ve unpacked this over the years, I’m convinced this is more about the adults feeling good about what “their” kids can do for them than anything else. The teenage years are “seed years” and are meant for trial and error, for lumps and lessons and for growth and development into the young adults they will become. They don’t need more hoopla and attention, they simply need Unconditional Love from their parents and other caring adults.
