We have three boys and one little girl. Last week, we were talking about the things that no one tells you about parenting a teenage boy. I learned several years ago that those years between being a boy and being a man are the important ones. When our sons are not quite little boys anymore, yet not quite grown.
The teenage years are also called adolescence. This is a time for growth spurts and puberty changes sexual maturation. A teen may grow several inches in several months, followed by a time of very slow growth. Then they may have another growth spurt. Puberty changes may happen slowly.
Fantasy is my favorite genre to read. I can still remember my first foray into another world, slipping through an enchanted wardrobe and experiencing the breathtaking adventure beyond. Fantasy books bring the imagination to life and allow the impossible to occur.
