My Chat with Kristen from Be Living Proof was exactly what I needed...a fellow mom of teens, discussing how to be the best parent we can for those pre-adults. Teaching "life isn't fair" and the sooner you realize that, the better!

We discussed:

  • teens choosing friends
  • finding new friends when current friends are making different choices
  • how to teach them to have the confidence to make decisions other than their friends
  • Device rules, filters, and flexibility of rules
  • Social media
  • comparisons

We talked about the age she gave her oldest a phone, and the funny story behind that!

And we have the same FAVORITE PARENTING BOOK, but she's actually read past where I have, and I learned something I need to go look up in that book!
