When I first began creating a family, I had a lot of fun teaching and playing with my little ones. We conquered the "terrible twos" well and began to think that parenting was a breeze. However, when my little ones became teenagers, I was not ready for the issues we had to face. My teens became very secretive and started developing a little sibling rivalry. I was eager to restore our close-knit family structure again, but just wasn't sure how to do it. I decided to take our family to counseling and during our sessions, my teenagers began opening up and talking to me about their problems again. I was ecstatic at this change and it continued at home. I am eager to share what I have learned about managing children throughout the tough teenage years and other tips for solving family and relationship problems on my new blog!
