Hello, Australia and the UK!

The Central Business District of Sydney, Austr...Image via Wikipedia One more shout-out to two other international blog readers: Hey there, moms from the UK and Australia! I'm dying to know . . . what are teenagers like on your planets? What special challenges do you have in raising your teens? And what do you like best about the teen years?

Please post a response, if you feel like sharing your story with the whole wide world, and I will cut and paste it into a post on this blog.

We hope to hear from all you mothers of teenagers across the pond and down under!

What I love about my two teens is that they challenge me to think differently all the time. I find them so interesting to talk to. Of course, their habits drive me crazy, but I'm so eager to see the adults they turn into. We're off to a good start.

What a great attitude you have, Dina! Sounds like you've developed a strong relationship with your teens. I'm realizing that if you want a good relationship with them, it starts well before they reach their teens. I wish I could go back in time to when my daughter was in 8th grade. I had a lot going on in my life then and maybe didn't give her the attention she needed. I'm playing catch-up with her, and it's tough at times. She's not giving up the goods as easily as she might have two years ago. How old are your teens? And do you live in the states or beyond?
