I took some time out last week from the linky but I did manage to catch up with reading the wonderful selection of posts. . As always it is tough to pinpoint a favourite but in a week dedicated to Mental Health Awareness here in the UK, our vote this week goes to Suzanne at Inside, Outside & Beyond and her post on Parenting A Child With Mental Illness.
Suzanne and her family have endured a lot of heartache over the last few years as her eldest daughter has battled with her mental health and this post is a honest and raw account of their experience. It is also a post filled with love and hope for the future as they prepare to celebrate her daughter's 18th birthday. As parents we never know what lies around the corner and it is posts like Suzanne's that remind us to be ever mindful of what is happening in the lives of our tweens and teens and continue to raise awareness of this very important issue.
If you are new to our link-up this is a place to share your posts related to children who are in the secondary stage of schooling and beyond i.e. the tweens, teens and young adults as well as any stories related to midlife.
