Being A Mother to a Teenage Daughter

Hi all,

This week I just want to talk about my experiences of being a mother to a teenage daughter.  I can say the early years were difficult but now that my daughter is a teenager, I am terrified about what is about to occur.  Don’t get me wrong my daughter I haven’t had many issues but the other day I just had a chance to sit there and just look at her and realize that this human that I use to hold in my arms is now almost the same height as me.  I then wonder wow in a few short years my daughter will be 18 years old and heading to college hopefully.

I am a single mother to my daughter.  The circumstances as far as me and my daughter’s father was unavoidable and I was faced with raising her all on my own.  I know that I have been the best mother that I can be with what I was faced with.  I have made a lot of sacrifices to give my daughter a nice home and provide her with anything that she has ever asked me for.  Did I spoil my daughter in some ways? I did,  but I tried not to spoil her rotten.  I left all that to her grand parents.

I am looking forward to her coming to me for advice about boys and guiding her though the body changes that has already started to happen to her. I am looking forward to our relationship maturing and I pray and hope that she doesn’t become a teenage terror.

A lot of parents were not so lucky during these years with their children, but I hope by me talking about my fears being a parent to a teenager I can put some parents as well as myself at ease.

I am looking forward to the new adventures that is about to take place for me and I hope to write to you all again and keep you posted on my journey as a parent during these teenage years with my daughter.  Some of you all will surely relate to how I am feeling.

Please feel free to comment and even give me some parental advice.  I look forward to hearing from you all.

Stay tuned to next week

    My daughter turns five in November. She has always been very independent, so it’ll be interesting to see how the teenage years happen….
