You know when you meet someone for the first time and the conversation doesn’t quite go right? Maybe they said something you didn’t like or you made a comment they didn’t agree with? Well that has just happened to me when reading a website. Their opening remark was:
Parenting teens is a thankless and tough job.
I would have copes if they said ‘can be’ or ‘sometimes appears to be’ but they made a definitive statement – and I don’t agree with it.
Then they went on to say:
If you have a teenage girl, parenting becomes huge challenge.
And I don’t agree again – my observation is that *if* anything teenage boys provide more challenges.
Maybe it’s because I am about to walk my baby down the aisle that I can see the thankfulness in parenting … what do you think?
I am almost reluctant to give you the link! But then again they may say some good things in the article, but I confess I didn’t read it – first impressions and all that.
