As many of you know, I have three kids. I have two girls and one boy. My eldest, Micah Izabel, is already turning 12 years old this March. And with that, I am entering another milestone in parenting which is handling a teenager.
Since I am no expert in parenting, I have many apprehensions about myself. I fear that I will become an epic fail. Though there are a lot of books about how to handle a teenager but theory is relatively different from real life. There is no handbook on how to react on every parenting situation!
As of now, my eldest girl is starting to change. Aside from her physical changes, her interests have evolved from toys and games to kawaii drawings, digital micrometers, colored pens, diaries, polymer clays, origami and others! Yes, she is more on creative things nowadays. She prefers getting stuffs where she could creative cute things from rather than dolls. Well, I don’t complain much on her preferences. I believe what she wants is far more compelling than early usage of make-ups or chasing after boys. LOL!!!
This summer, I have promised her that I will enroll her in a summer class that involves polymer clay creations. She wants to learn how to make stuffs from it and I want to support her interests. So far, the only thing I know to do is support her.
