I am a 58 year old mom of an awesome 15 year old boy. I didn't have him until late in life - and discovered that raising a self-confident, kind, courteous kid is something that I can do really well. In my 20's I worked with the Eckerd Foundation, a wilderness-based year-round alternative school that worked with emotionally disturbed children ranging in ages from 8-16. I lived in the woods with a group of 10 kids for three years. (The kids had to commit to a one-year stay.) I probably learned more than they did during that time! The program's key take aways were 1) taking responsibility for one's own actions - there are consequences for everything we do! 2) How to communicate effectively to resolve conflict and work together. As a mom, I've been (and still am) active with my son's Scout troop. I've got my first aid and Read more CPR certifications. My life-guarding certificate just recently expired. (I want you to envision me in those lifeguarding classes with all those high-schoolers! It was pretty funny, but was well worth it in the long run.) I prefer to be outside, doing things. I like to read, craft, and build with kids. There's something new to learn every day.
