On Monday I told you about a chat that I co-hosted over on The Motherhood. Read about the chat here. We spoke about what we somewhat are experts on: Tweens.
My 6 day old teenager has made me an experienced mother in so many things. His tween years were made for the memory books. Seriously, I can’t wait for the teenage years. Insert sarcasm… NOW!
We had the pleasure chatting with renowned parenting expert Rosalind Wiseman. Read a summary of the chat here. It was a wonderful experience to chat with mom who have kids the same age as I do. We had the same struggles and challenges. We all frown at the same behavior and chuckled at the weird species we call our tweens. We covered the lazy student, the excuses, the gross smell from their shoes and even spoke about the seriousness of bullying. I felt like as if I was speaking with old time friends.
Rosalind Wiseman will be appearing with Anderson Cooper and Dr. Phil at 8 p.m. ET on Oct. 9 and 14 (check local listings for channels) and talking about Bullying. I her blog post, the “Stop Bullying: Speak Up“ Rosalind talks about this campaign being near and dear to her heart.
Starting today, you can join a powerful anti-bullying campaign that truly has the potential to change lives and make our children safe from bullying. It’s the “Stop Bullying: Speak Up” campaign and pledge. If you are someone who cares about the safety of all children, I hope you will take a few minutes to read and sign this pledge.- Rosalind Wiseman
