    Comment on the call from the mom asking Is there anything I can do to help her 14 yo daughter who is sad and moody after we moved out of state? I was 14 when my parents moved from ATL to PGH. I’m the youngest of 3 with 2 older brothers. I was very sad & depressed / moody when we moved. I can tell you it was definately due to the move. Leaving behind my brothers meant I suddenly became an only child, I felt pulled away from my security of my friends. Although I did make new friends quickly it took a long time to feel connected to my new environment. This young girl simply needs time to adjust to her new home & environment. There’s a feeling of kinship with your old home & friends and it just takes time to re-adjust. If possbile she should be able to go back & visit & stay connected & I think that will help her. Also family time toghether especially at the Holidays is important.

  2. I thought Shannon had a great solution to daughter wearing short shorts. You have to let them make decisions, because the response will not be favorable to orders or being dictated to.
