It appears that as a parent the only constant I have to look forward to is change. Each stage has its own challenges and learning curve. Let me tell you here and now, without hesitation, the teen years are no exception.
There may be fewer toys to store now, but there are more books and clothing — and of course there is the all-important bed, a place where even the busiest kid will crash, refuel, and awaken to another day of whatever the world has in store for her. Altea Book Work and Altea Book Board are two popular choices for teens: these are twin- to intermediate-sized wall beds, both with interior bookshelves that are hidden from view when the bed is in its closed position. Altea Book Work includes a table that can be used as a work space.
My teen twins are absolutely the light of my life. They have made me the tired, anxious, slightly neurotic mom I am today. My regularly scheduled ultrasound showed our mystery little to be another girl.
So often when our children twins or otherwise are living at home with us, we find ourselves speaking on their behalf. As a parent, I believe this is mostly a wise choice. I like to think I am fairly aware of how my year-old identical twins feel about certain things, and it turns out, I kinda am.
Adolescence is a trying time for not just the parents of a teenager but also for the young adult himself. Physical, mental and social development happens at a whirlwind pace. Helping two or more children through this transition to adulthood is undoubtedly an experience that will test your limits but will also gratify you.
Jan If I remember this, it does make it a bit easier to breathe through the when one twin is in the limelight and the other is not. I think the most important thing we can do as parents, is to help each twin find things that they are interested times in and good at or wish to improve. This comes more into play as they enter the middle school years, with individual talents, motivation and interests becoming more apparent.
