I did not have a lot of boyfriends when I was young. I was self-conscious and nerdy, and could not figure out how to connect with boys. But now and then, in my teens and 20S, I managed to find myself with a boyfriend. I met Lee when I was 19. He broke my heart. But not in the way you imagine.

Going to college is a huge step in life and applying is far from relaxing.

A Letter To My 14-Year-Old Daughter

Debra Carnes | Posted 06.09.2016 | Parents
Debra Carnes

Daughter, you are amazing. One day you're sweet and needy, where I feel like you'd cuddle up in my lap if you were smaller. The next day, you spew venom and the look in your eyes tells me someone has taken over your body and she is not of this world. You are my 14-year-old daughter and I am simply your parent along for a ride that makes Google maps question the route at times.
