Hi All! My name is Lesli and I am so glad to be joining! I know at least one person here and I am excited to learn more from all of you. Currently, I provide tutoring and advocacy for children and parents. I have taught in the private and public schools for the past 15 years. I have two wonderful boys ages 12 and 8. I used to think that they needed me when they wre younger and I felt so guilty working so much. I now realize that it is even more important to be available to them as they become older~especially teenagers!!! So, my questions will mainly pertain to my older son. Has anyone else experienced that children need you more as they get older rather than when they are little? I find it a struggle to work full-time and be a parent to two vivacious boys. This is the first year I am NOT teaching in a school, but am subbing and providing my tutoring services. Finding that balance between work and home is difficult and I am sure we have all been there! Thanks so much!
