Back to school is an emotional time, especially since we’ve just moved and my kids are starting new schools. I’m pretty sure part of winning the mom of the year award includes moving your child during the middle school years.
I fondly remember the awkward stages, the hormonal changes, the ‘trying to discover who I am’ stage. That’s a lie, middle school was not my favorite. And I think a lot of kids feel the same way. This is why having a conversation and teaching kids empathy is important.
