When you have a child, they come with no manual, no guide, and let’s be honest, most of the parenting advice you will receive over time will be horrible.
My oldest is 17, my youngest is 7, over the years, I’ve second-guessed decisions I’ve made, past, present, and future. Parenting has the tendency to suck, especially if you don’t have a support system, which up until a few years ago, was a perfect description of our personal situation. Let’s face it, whether you have a good support system or not, every parent needs as many resources as they can get. That’s why you should check out Boys Town.

No lie, I went straight for the teen discipline. Once my older children became teens, yes ma’am and no ma’am turn into lip popping, eye rolling and grunting. Discipline is hard because they tend to become hostile which leads to a complete absence of communication, or even worse- running away and self-harm. This email series from Boys Town helped me understand how to communicate through the silence, create rewards, and discipline dispassionately. The true benefit? No screaming, no yelling, no drama and *gasp* happy teens. That will let you take photos of them.
