  • Just like you adjusted to every other stage. One day at a time. I know these are truly trying years and more than once you will want to hurt someone badly, but these years also pass.

  • My daughter just turned 13 in August and it has been hard trying to deal with all her issues on a daily basis... I just take it one day at a time with her and pray that the day goes well!!! Just plain old consistency still works with her!!!!

  • On those really difficult teen drama days, try to remember the sweet toddler they used to be, or picture them all grown up into a great young adult. Teen years can be bumpy at times, but like everything else (good and bad)...
