    I wish someone had told me to talk to my parents more and ask what crazy things they did as teenagers. I think this would have made me feel that they went through some of the things I went through as a teenager and connect with them more.

    As a teenager I was so uncomfortable with my body and I wish someone told me to appreciate it and treat it well and not to care about anyone who said mean things because I would grow out to be beautiful when everything is in the right place, besides we should work with what we have been given and be the best we can be.

    its not so much what i wish someone had said something, but how much i had listened. one of the biggest, and i canot stress it any more, is abstinance. in fact no dating in general. having a boyfriend, or girlfriend, causes more stress and more distractions than most people can handle during highschool. now i am twenty years old, a stay at home mom and approching my second year of marriage, and even though i love my family and we are happy together, i don't see my life going anywhere other than staying at home serving my family. lets face it moms are slaves.

    Thanks ladies. The event went great and I got a lot of really good questions from the girls. Your concerns were theirs as well. When my time was up they were asking for more time to talk. I loved it and if I got through to just one of them, my job was done! I'll post pictures and a hub about it soon. Waiting for the photographer to send them to me.
