This book is about my conversations with my teenage daughter about things I wish she understood now but will probably only do so at 16. These are simple life truths, based on my journey as mother, which I wish someone had told me when I was 16.
It is also about all the mothers (and fathers) out there who share my struggle of talking to a teenager. In some ways, it is about all daughters and sons, teenage and beyond, who need to know why parents do what they do. These are not parenting skills or techniques, there are others perhaps better qualified to do that.
Also, in some way, this book is an acknowledgement of my parents because as the circle of life comes to this point, I am humbled by the realization that it is tough being a parent, tougher being a loving parent and toughest being a good parent. Children test our limits and challenge us every day but when love guides us through it, it is doable. And beautiful ! Period.
