“Lori, how am I supposed to make it through high school with my daughter? She makes me crazy. She is so mean to everyone and she doesn’t care.”
Two mom friends asked me this question last week.
I think there are a lot of reasons that teenage girls are difficult. But guess what?
“So, what’s easier, raising girls or boys?”
That question always makes me chuckle. As a mother of five sons and three daughters, I can say with total confidence that females and males handle LIFE differently.
And as I go down this mental road, I easily recall the time when Rachel, our oldest daughter, was in high school.
Welcome to The Parenting Dare blog! My name is Lori Doerneman, wife of one and mother of eight. I live in Goddard, Kansas and I love my life.
I am so excited to announce that next week, Sunday, August 9, 2018, we are releasing our free mini course, The Daughter Dare. If you have a daughter aged 8-16, you are in for a treat. EDIT: That course is out NOW! Check it out HERE.
Before we get there, I wanted to take today and look at the inner life of mothers.
This blog is written by Eric. Scott. Doerneman. Tagging in for mom this week.
Excited for this.
I was born July 4, 1993. Mom always says that was the day she lost her independence but I just LOVE fireworks. I was the first (and therefore obviously best) of her eight children.
