I want you to know…

blue hairI want you to know that not everyone is going to like you. I want you to know that you can fail and I will still love you. I want you to know that I am not perfect. I want you to know…

I find myself thinking and saying this phrase a lot. I have two teens and one nine year old that thinks she is a teen. There is so much I want them to know but so much that I don’t always say out loud. Yes, I want them to know, but I also know that sometimes they will ‘hear’ it louder from someone else. What resources can I share with them so they will find the answers I want them to know?

Below are some of the resources I have share with my teens so far. And yes, it was via text, email, Twitter or Facebook. I’ll use any means I can to share the  information I want them to know.

What have you shared with your teen? I would love to know!

One thought on “I want you to know…

  1. Every decision you make has a consequence. And you have to live with the consequence. Those are statements I used many times with my teens and now I use them with my grandchildren. My intention was that the young person would begin to grasp what happened as a result of a choice he or she made. That transition into thinking beyond the short term, right now.
