I have two children who are young teenagers. It’s fascinating to me to watch them begin to define themselves and set standards for themselves. We’re having conversations about how much we will spend on tennis shoes and when it’s ok to where eye shadow. It’s funny how the right pair of tennis shoes or wearing eye shadow makes a huge difference in their self esteem.
I know it’s all typical of teenagers. I remember when I was like that about clothes and makeup.
The thing is, I wonder if we ever grow out of it . . .
