From High Chairs to High School: 30 Teen Parenting Blogs
....including yours truly!
I was notified this week that my blog/website has been chosen by Amanda Harris to include in her exciting compilation of online parenting advise givers. Called From High Chairs to High School: 30 Teen Parenting Blogs it features blogs by parents, professionals and teens themselves. It also includes a site for "tweens", not an adorable pronunciation of "twins"-- rather the sometimes awkward age group of 7-12 year olds, especially girls.
I salute Ms Harris for combing through the haystack that is the blogosphere and coming up with some diamonds. I am honored to be a part of the list. Here are a few others she features:
Connect with your teens through pop culture and technology where a recent post lists the top 25 entertainment personalities who Twitter and other important things to know about your child's culture.
Support for Families with Troubled Teens: a good looking blog that appears to support rather than diminish those kids who struggle more.
Denise Witmer's Teen Blog on About.com has long been one of my favorites. It's always good to read the readers' comments here and the site does a good job of cataloguing related articles.
From India comes an intriguing teen-written blog Rants of a Survivor written by teen, Shravan Vijayaprasad, who describes himself as a " random rambler with a mind full of crap and interesting crap at that too!" it gives us a small window into the life and times of an Indian adolescent.
So I am sending a shoutout to any of all my fellow bloggers who never might be sure if anyone is "listening" to our musings. Somehow the message gets out there and into good hands. Thanks, Amanda.
