Reese Witherspoon Not Prepared For Daughter to Become a Teenager
Reese Witherspoon recently talked to Daybreak about how she is unprepared for her daughter, Ava, to turn thirteen. She tells the T.V. show, “This is the time where I start asking all my friends who have kids who are older, ‘What do you do about a cell phone? What are your rules about the computer? Is she allowed to go out with friends or is she not?’ So I learn a lot from other mothers.”
I can understand her fears. I am dreading the day my kids become teenagers, not so much with my boys; but my daughter, I can already tell she is going to be a handful. Teenage years not only come with more angst, they also bring with them hormones and dangers that just aren’t currently present for my four-year-old. She can be a handful now and if she is anything like me as a teenager, which my mom secretly hopes for, then I am in for a VERY long few years. However with my boys, I am just so unfamiliar with what a teenage boy is like (I grew up with only one sister), I will be going into that totally blind, though my husband obviously has experience with it.
So, what are your fears about your babies becoming teenagers? Do you think they will make the same mistakes as you did?
