Remember when we were young and were told High School would be the best 4 years of our life! Well, that may have been for the student, I would have to say it has been one of the hardest times as a parent. The things that kids today are faced with amazes me.
Freshman year they already are asked questions like:
What college do you plan on attending? What do you want to do when you grow up? Do you have your 4 year plan done?
Did we have to know all that our freshman year? I had no idea at that time what my life would look like after high school.
As a parent of high school boys we have learned how to ask, when to ask, and when to just be quiet. They are growing and becoming young adults and as a mom I still worry and wonder what they are thinking and doing.
