I LOVE this idea. Conversations can be so difficult--while you may be able to plan out the opening statement and maybe predict a few other openings, they never go anything like one imagines. With writing, it's possible to get everything out all at once and have control over that part of things. I will definitely be using this idea, possibly sooner than later.

I was just so excited about this idea--I have high hopes for it. We'll see how it goes!

Well now you've made me cry.
I think half the battle with teens is just staying put. No matter how they push you in the opposite direction. Just stay there. Holding your rope. Good for you!

I think just holding on applies to most of parenthood--we just can't let go (well we do, but we hold on at the same time).
