As a mom, I’m a dialed in to what it feels like to make my way through middle school and hit puberty. My small girl has the benefit of my actual experience. I lived it. I understand awkward. And acne. And learning to shave, wash my face and figure out the mass of hair I was blessed to grow.
As the mother of a now tween boy…I don’t have the experience. At least, not beyond what I witnessed as a tween girl. But I truly believe it has been crucial for me to learn. While I am fully aware his father’s advice is invaluable, I’m confident I have something to share.
In my mind, it begins with starting to learn a little responsibility in life in general and then applying that to his own world. There is basic hygiene, skin care, and of course his teeth to thing about.
