Dear Mom of High School Freshman, It is hard not to feel, in those weeks leading up to the first day of freshman year, that you and your child have finally hit the big leagues. High school is, in many ways, a break with everything that has gone before. High school takes four years because that is the minimum it takes for both kids and parents to transition from the final days of childhood to the first moments of adulthood. Suddenly your child, and let’s be honest he may look like a young adult but is still very much a child, is in a world where sex, drugs, alcohol, along with high academic demands, competitive sports, and college are all part of the vernacular.

All of these things indicate that you have matured a bit and are ready to take on new interests, new courses, new activities, new relationships, and new responsibilities.You now have new interests, teachers, counselors, and classmates that were not a part of your life a year ago.If you were enrolled in a standard ninth grade curriculum, you now know more about math, English, science, foreign language, and the world around you. One of my other friends likes him and I think he likes her, it litteraly hurts me to see them together. My friend, he may like me, I have had a crush on home since we were little, he is my age, he teases me, taunts me, compliments me, but he does that to my friends too.
