When Being a Success Coach and a Mother Do Not Mix…
This morning I was driving the Tween to school and chatting about the upcoming holidays and the end of the semester and her grades and such. It turned into one of my classic Parenting Fails…
Me: So will you be getting a report card before the holidays or is there a progress report or something?
Tween: I am not sure. I know that the semester will be up soon, which is cool cause some of us will be changing classes.
Me: What do you mean changing classes? Like you get new classes?
Tween: Yeah, like if you didnt have Personal Development Class this semester, you have to take it next semester.
Me: Ohhhh, Personal Development – that sounds like a cool class!
Tween: MOM! It is SEX EDUCATION!!!!!!!!!!!! (followed by a deer in headlights jaw drop stare)
Me: Oh… THAT kind of Personal Development…. (as I let it sink in that Dave Ramsay and Tony Robbins will NOT be featured in THIS “Personal Development” Class….)
