Tweens, Teens & Beyond #32

Good morning and thank you for joining Sharon, Nicky and I for what will be the last Tweens, Teens & Beyond link up of 2017. We will be taking a break at the close of this week's linky on Thursday 14th December and will re-open again on Tuesday 9th January 2018.

What a year it has been and we look back fondly on all we have achieved since our launch earlier this year and look forward to continuing to grow our loyal community further in the New Year, please do help spread the word if you know of someone who might like to join us.

In the meantime, back to the business of last week and our favourite post from last week was Alex at My Lifelong Holiday and her post on a trip to Bilbao with Kids  Whilst Alex headlines her post as a trip with kids her itinerary would perfectly suit those looking for a trip away from kids too!  Just a thought!  It is extremely comprehensive with great tips on where to stay and eat as well as all the must visit attractions such as the Guggenheim which is definitely on my list of galleries to visit.  Do pop over for a read.

Now all that remains is to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year and we look forward to welcoming you all back after

Good morning and thank you for joining Sharon, Nicky and I for another week of Tweens, Teens & Beyond and an opportunity to link up your posts on secondary parenting and lifestyle topics.

Our favourite post from last week was from Liberty On The Lighter Side on the more challenging aspects of bringing up teens with her reflective piece When Can I Resign From Being A Parent?   It is tough sometimes but the love and support of those close to us and a good dose of communication can work wonders.  Do pop over for a read if you missed it.

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #30

Good morning and thank you for joining Sharon, Nicky and I for another week of Tweens, Teens & Beyond and another milestone as we move into our thirties.

So Christmas is ever closer and rather than hide under the covers I have decided to join the great and the good in the gift guide blogosphere with a post on must-read books for teens this week, compiled with the help of my bookworm daughter.  If it's not for you then I won't be offended if you pass it by without a comment this week - just give me a retweet instead.

Back to the business of the link-up, the fabulously, gorgeous Laurie at Vanity and Me is our favourite from last week, with her post on a new facial treatment which is apparently guaranteed to make us midlifers glowing again!  As a facial addict this ticked all my boxes and I am adding it to my Christmas list for Mr MoT...so guys before you switch off, take a moment to think of that special woman in your life who may appreciate this as a gift.

Now onto this week.

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #29

Good morning and thank you for joining Sharon, Nicky and I for another week of Tweens, Teens & Beyond.

Despite my best efforts to ignore it, the Christmas countdown is well and truly underway and London has gone nuts for sure.  A quick trip up to town yesterday for a presentation had me running back to the tranquility of the commons of South London as soon as I could make an excuse to leave, madness is the only way to describe it!

Back to the business of the link-up, the hilariously funny mum of teens Sharon at Everyone's Buck Stops Here was our favourite from last week, with her post on the hidden treasures of a teenager's room.  Sharon is a loyal linker and having recently revamped her blog is presenting the dramas of life as the mother of teenagers in a fresh and alternative style as a newspaper reporter. She is a comic genius.

Now onto this week.

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #28

Good morning, it's that time of the week again when Sharon, Nicky and I look forward to your posts about all things Tween, Teen & Young Adult related as well as any burning lifestyle issues you would like to share.

Our favourite post from last week was Rachna and her post on Tween Tantrums: How To Handle Them.  I am glad to say that this phase is behind me now but that is not to say the agony of it is far from my memory.

It is a difficult transitioning period for all involved and requires patience and diplomacy in bucket loads.  Rachna sounds like she has the situation well and truly under control and her advice will no doubt provide a useful reference for any parent who still has all this to come.  Do take a read if only to heave a sigh of relief that you survived and share any pearls of wisdom of any you own.

Now onto this week.

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #27

Good morning, I hope everyone has had a lovely half term break and welcome back to Tweens, Teens & Beyond #27 with my co-hosts Sharon and Nicky.

As always we are glad to welcome you all, whether new or old linkers. The Tweens, Teens & Beyond parenting stage is a niche area but we welcome lifestyle posts too so if you have something to say about yourself rather than your children, however old they might be, please do link-up.

Our favourite post from last week was a relatively new linker to our community Matthew Blythe, author of meandminimees with his post on Hide and Seek.  Matthew is a single adopter of two teenage boys and has been contending with one of his boys disappearing at night.  The post is a raw insight into the challenges Matthew is facing and provides us with a touching glimpse of his agony as a father on handling the situation the best way he can.  Please do take a read and lend your support.  We all have various upheavals during our parenting journey but I think it is fair to say Matthew's is unique to many of us.

Now onto this week.

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #26

Good morning and welcome back to another week of linky fun with Tweens, Teens & Beyond #26 with Sharon, Nicky and I.

As always we are glad to welcome you all, whether new or old linkers. The Tweens, Teens & Beyond parenting stage is a niche area but we welcome lifestyle posts too so if you have something to say about yourself rather than your children, however old they might be, please do link-up.

Our favourite post from last week was Liz at It's A Drama.  Liz is a loyal linker who has given us as a team and individually so much support from the beginning.  Now she and her husband are about to embark on an exciting new chapter, taking their teens travelling around the world for a year and you can read all about the decision making and their plans in her post here.  Personally I can't wait to read her stories.  Aside from being jealous Liz is a great story teller and I look forward to indulging in their adventures from afar.   Good luck to them all.

Now onto this week.

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #25

Good Morning.  It's Tuesday and time for Tweens, Teens & Beyond #25 which makes it our silver anniversary - well in weeks not years clearly - but it is still a milestone to be celebrated with a woop!

As always Sharon, Nicky and I are glad to welcome you all, whether new or old linkers. The Tweens, Teens & Beyond parenting stage is a niche area but we welcome lifestyle posts too so if you have something to say about yourself rather than your children, however old they might be, please do link-up.

Our favourite post from last week was Katy at Experienced Bad Mom.  Katy has been with us from day one and never fails to raise a smile with her posts.  Last week she shared her joys on raising a teenage boy.  We have many linkers who are parents to girls but few that fall on the other side (apart from me) so it was lovely to read a fresh perspective of her experiences of the trials and tribulations that come with parenting the male species.  She is clearly doing a cracking job and he is doing her proud.  Take a read!

Now onto this week.
