    That list is perfect! I wish I had it when I was growing up – I’m not sure exactly how it could have helped me…it just seems that it could have. Nobody ever explained these things to me so I had to learn them the hard way. It’s because of this that I will never dismiss my daughters feelings either.

      I wish I’d had this list back then too. I probably still would have made dumb choices about boys but maybe fewer?

      Sad part is you know Rissa will think I don’t know what I’m talking about because I’m an adult … Well hopefully she will at least half listen to me!Syrana

    These are awesome lessons. I’m sure my mom tried to teach me similar ones, but sometimes you just have to learn on your own and make your own unique mistakes.

      You do still have to learn on your own which isn’t easy when it comes to emotions like love. It’s one thing I think is really hard to prepare our kids for.Syrana

    I think that #1 is a big one for me – I am just someone who loves a lot of different things and different people (in different ways), but saying that to people makes them uncomfortable. I never say it or think it in order to hear it back.

      I think most people focus on romantic love but there’s definitely other types of love too. Unfortunately I have said it to hear it while being super insecure :(Syrana

    What a great list, Darcy. I think so many young children aren’t really taught about love – makes the teenage years a little crazy – don’t you think!?

      Thank you! I think it’s one of those things that can be hard to explain and teach but is important to try. I hope my experiences can help someone!Syrana

    I love this list. I’m always trying to think of ways to help the kids understand love. You’ve given me so many ideas for talking points I have to organize them now lol.
