Parenting: High School ahead

My 14-year-old son, Billy, graduated from Middle School yesterday. It was a great ceremony - with interesting speeches by several students and lots of awards. Billy was recognized for making Distinguished Honor Roll every quarter and today, he'll be accepting awards for his participation football and wrestling, student government, band and jazz band. (Hey, a Mom with a blog gets to brag a little bit!) Clearly, for him, Middle School was a time of personal growth and achievement.
