This past Tuesday I had the privilege to co-host Teen Academy with five other bloggers (Connie, Brain Foggles , Jo-Lynne, Musings of a Housewife , Stephanie, And Twins make 5! , Liz, Thoughts of a Mommy and Jennifer, Mom Spotted, as we joined The Motherhood and host Rosalind Wiseman, who is a parenting expert and author of a New York Times bestselling book, Queen Bees and Wannabes (which the movie Mean Girls was based on)!
We discussed issues tweens face today, what our struggles were as mothers of tweens heading back to school (sweaty, stinky tween boys was one!) and each participant offered their sage advice, empathy and commaradie. Rosalind had some wise advice as to how to handle specific issues.
Overall there was a general sense of appreciation for the hour we spent together online and we look forward to this coming week’s Tween Academy on TheMotherhood, sponsored by Unilever.
Also, Rosalind has some guest appearances coming up on TV that you may want to tune into – She will be appearing with Anderson Cooper and Dr. Phil at 8 p.m. ET on Oct. 9 and 14 (check local listings for channels). Here is her recent blog post about the appearances: http://rosalindwiseman.com/2011/09/19/stop-bullying-speak-up-campaign-can-change-lives/
Disclosure: I am being compensated for my time by Unilever and The Motherhood, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
