Mom's Blog

Debra Carmona, ArtistA Mother's heart is a deep ocean of thoughts and reflections. As time passes the waters run ever so deep. It is my endeavor to share from my heart the lessons learned over the course of my life in raising six children in hopes to encourage and inspire Mom's of all ages but also as a record for my children as they are now raising their own children.


Even in my sunset years I am continuing to learn and develope new things as my life progresses into furthering my life's ambitions.  I hope to be an inspiration to all women everywhere, to inspire you with the thoughts that you are so much more than the world would have you to think and that you can do much more than you may have thought possible. We are never too old to learn. Life is a constant learning process.

Raising Teenagers & Young Adults

Posted by Debra Carmona on 21 March 2011

Parenting is not for Cowards.

Being a parent is the toughest job on earth. With six children each one is uniquely different from each other with their own special challenges at various stages of their life. Sometimes we feel so inept as parents and feel like quitting. I am afraid too many parents give up the fight too soon and give in to the child's pressures. It is easy to manage them when they are young if you start out with a discipline plan but as they reach the young adult years there are new challenges to face. I am certain that in their early formative years (between ages 1 and 5) we warded off many of those bigger challenges we might have had to deal with. The training must start early. If you don't begin a concentrated program with them until after age five it may already be too late to have any real success. With my children the most concentrated time of training took place between the ages of eighteen months and three years old which included discipline that was often administered daily as needed. Some were more testy than others but it was during those early years we taught them to respect authority, bend over and take their punishment without a fight, and that there would always be consequences for their actions.
