Welcome back lovely people to Week 19 of the Tweens, Teens and Beyond linky hosted by myself and my fellow Tween & Teen Bloggers, Sharon from After The Playground and Jo from Mother of Teenagers.


Thank you to those of you that managed to link last week.  It was a quieter week as we expected.  It feels as though we are still getting into the swing of things and our respective new ventures, new schools and just generally cranking back into gear again.  It’s hard to get out of holiday mode isn’t?!

A successful start for us with secondary school and I really enjoyed reading through the posts last week.  It seems we are all very much in the same boat with new beginnings and new routines.

The post that particularly got our attention last week was the one from Suzanne of Chicken Ruby.

Suzanne raises so many points in her post about age appropriate toys for her stepdaughter.  Firstly, that we never stop being parents and that we continue to try and help our kids at any age. Secondly, that parents of kids with special needs face unique challenges and this continues when they reach adulthood. Thirdly, when you are in a minority group and the big corporations don’t cater for your needs it can be hard to get hold of the stuff that you need!  Suzanne has faced many challenges over the summer and we admire the way she just keeps on keeping on.  Thank you for sharing your post with us Suzanne.

If you are joining us for the first time this week, welcome and thank you – it is great to have you.

Our rules are below regarding linking up, commenting, our badge and sharing the love.  We look forward to reading your posts.  Our linky badge is currently out of action, so please do not worry about adding it.  This is being rectified.
