Erin wrote to me a couple of weeks ago with some great suggestions about discussion topics for issues that moms with older kids face. Here is a thought provoking Tuesday Topic from her!
As parents who grew up in the States, we know what growing-up experiences are “highly prized,” such as proms, clubs, sports teams, etc. These are often pretty much non-existent for MK’s or TCK’s – is this a struggle for your teen abroad? Do they “know” what they are missing? How can you help supplement those experiences with something different?
(And on an unrelated note, check out Erin’s blog posts from February and read about her experience serving on a medical team in Haiti. It reminded me again of the importance of our continued prayers for the people there.)
