A delightful blog full of tips about parenting a Modern Vampire teen… That is how this all started out but we’ve since grown here at Vampire Maman (notice I used WE.)
From the first blog posts about removing blood stains, to Werewolves, to love letters, adult drama, romance, weird stuff, cocktails, tee vee, Short Story Sunday, poetry (very popular), dealing with ancient Vampires, marriage, my brothers, Vampire Hunters…and don’t forget the Ghost, I’ve covered a lot of territory. Oh, I forgot book lists and a few wonderful guests along the way to.
What this all comes down to is that CHANGE and EVOLUTION are a good thing. Not just for blogging but for just about everything in life.
I tell that to my kids all the time (and this is first and foremost a parenting blog,)
Change is good. Not just the kind you find in the bottom of your pockets or purse.
There is a lot of change in my world right now, including school. It starts in two weeks. One Vampire child is starting High School and one is a Senior. AND they’ll both be going to the same school again. That is a big change. It will be fun and interesting.
But the basic message remains the same:
- Talk with your kids. Not AT them. Not TO them. But WITH them.
- If we were all the same the world would be a boring place.
- Love your children but let them fly and be their own Vampires (or whatever you are.)
- Share our experiences with each other.
So in honor of the new school year the assignment for today is: Change, evolve, explore, create, laugh, share, love, hug and be the best Vampire (or whatever you are) you can be.
