Last year I was a contributor at TeenLife Mag and got to offer some advice on one of my favorite subjects: relationships. In particular, how parents and kids can avoid losing it over the college essay.
I’m a parent and step-parent now, and I really get how tricky it can be. We all need reminders that our relationship with our kid is faaaaar more important than anything we might want for them to accomplish.
It doesn’t always feel that way– when our kids don’t want our input. It doesn’t always feel that way– when our kids act annoyed that we parents seem so focused on a deadline. It doesn’t always feel that way– when we parents worry about the future. It doesn’t always feel that way– when we parents think our kid might be too focused, too stressed, and we want them to take a breather.

This might be the most important thing I have to offer, and that you have to offer: love, love, love. It looks different in every family system, just like every family looks different.
I’ll offer tools to help your inner world when the outer world is just a tad nutty. Please come be part of the conversation! We can take back the college essay!
