I am so happy to be joining with the amazing Nicky at Not Just the 3 of Us and Jo at Mother of Teenagers to launch a brand new linky all about Tweens, Teens & Beyond. I am a Mum of three tweens/teens myself and I love reading other bloggers’ experiences, opinions and thoughts about this fascinating stage of parenting.
This is a first linky for all three of us and we have done our best to rise to the challenge! We are hugely grateful for all the behind-the-scenes advice we have received from other bloggers and what we have learned from participating in other great linky communities.
Our linky will cover blog posts relating to children in their last year of primary school, the transition to secondary school and beyond. Yes, even as far as having young adult kids in university which is what happened to me last year!
Many blog posts about tweens and teens relate to the highs and lows of our children’s growing independence but there is a hidden story here. As their independence grows we, the parents, find the emotional space to redefine our own roles, reflect on what we want to do next and embark on some good old self-discovery. We would love for our linky to include stories about the magic of mid-life too.
It is important to us that our linky is as inclusive as possible so it is by no means limited to parents. We welcome all posts relating to midlife.
The linky will be launching on Tuesday 7th March at 10.00 and will run weekly thereafter.
Full details of the linky and its rules will be posted on 7th March so watch this space and make sure you are following us on our social media accounts.
