Ran across this excellent piece about the storms of parenting adolescents.
I had to hold back tears when I read this, because it dredged up deep memories of watching friends and parents I know do this for their teens. Grace always hits me in the feels like that.
I usually got to see both sides — the fear and fighting from the scared teen, and the pain and fear it caused their parents.
Yet they both held on. And they made it.
