My Chat with Kristen from Be Living Proof was exactly what I needed…a fellow mom of teens, discussing how to be the best parent we can for those pre-adults. Teaching “life isn’t fair” and the sooner you realize that, the better!

Navigating Friendships and Teens

We discussed:

  • teens choosing friends
  • finding new friends when current friends are making different choices
  • how to teach them to have the confidence to make decisions other than their friends
  • Device rules, filters, and flexibility of rules
  • Social media
  • comparisons

We talked about the age she gave her oldest a phone, and the funny story behind that!


And we have the same FAVORITE PARENTING BOOK, but she’s actually read past where I have, and I learned something I need to go look up in that book!

    Thanks for all your parenting advice! I really try to be close with my children but with necessary boundaries. We are trying to make our own traditions, we are trying to have conversations. We go to the neutral territory, we love one the place from https://best-vegas.com/blog/best-las-vegas-restaurants/ where we can talk clear and about everything. I believe that conversation is the key to successful relationships.
