The Teen Years Are Awesome, Too
Babies are awesome, right? Who doesn’t love it when they cry for hours because they’re overtired or have diaper fails when you’re miles from home? For some reason, people are super into only focusing on the good things about babyhood (cuddles and cuteness) and forgetting the challenges (crying and more crying) while they do the opposite during the teen years. People, there are awesome developmental milestones happening in adolescence including exploration of possibilities and developing empathy. The fact is that there are challenging moments at every stage as well as immeasurable joy. So be pro-development and celebrate it all.
