Ashley, I just read your comment after writing for an hour preparing for my Out of the  Mouths of Babes: An Evening of Mothers Reading to Others….and this question of yours is very pertinent. I have been writing about my mothering and about motherhood for five years or so. My kids are teens and have been since I started this writing. Usually, I ask them if I can quote them or tell a story with a highlight of their behavior, but almost always, I tell the story that is mine to tell- what an experience felt like for me, how it impressed or changed me. I have taken part in many discussions about this topic and have never heard one concluding perspective. It just helps me to keep my story in mind and know they will have their own stories to tell when they decide to do that.

There was a point when my teen aged son was helping me print off a copy of my manuscript and he read things he did not recall us discussing. So I had to go over it with him at that moment and assure him that I am telling my stories, that often involve him, but with his best interest and the integrity of our family in mind. Now that he is older, 19, I think he takes pride in my writing.

Great topic to discuss here on SheWrites. xo S

For those who blog or publish stories about motherhood: have your kids read your stories about how you mother them?  As they become tweens and teenagers has it created any issues for your kids?  What is your feeling about their discovery of your work/passion for writing about motherhood?  

I'm a mother to an avid young reader, age 8.  I write a great deal about motherhood, but have never put anything out there.  Just wondering if my reservation is justified.  As my daughter gets older, eventually she'll probably read some of my work.  I'm wondering about all your experiences with this.

How would you spend your lottery winnings or how does a writer spend the millions?

is your teen on sensory-stimulation overload? Meditation could be exactly what he/she needs:
