Different Thoughts I Have About My Kid Going To High School


Natalie starts High School on August 23rd and no,  I can't believe it. I have had all sorts of thoughts running through my head. They usually occur at like 3 AM. 

Here are some of those thoughts:


How can she be old enough to be in high school?


I hope she doesn't do drugs.


What if someone offers her drugs?


I hope she doesn't vape. 


What if someone offers her a vape?


Wasn't she just born?


What if she tries to skip class?


What if she's a scary driver when she learns to drive?


What if when she learns to drive she just drives off and doesn't come back?


Oh my gosh, math is going to get more difficult and I was already confused by fifth grade math.


What if she decides to date a bad influence? The people on Intervention usually say that they started using drugs by the person they dated in high school. 


Should I make her get a job in high school?


What if upperclassmen are mean to her? 


Why are spaghetti straps not allowed? It's just a shoulder. How is a shoulder going to corrupt anyone?


I hope she has a good high school experience and not a miserable one.


So. Yeah. Those are just some of what goes through my head at night. Or heck, sometimes during the day. 

Let's hope she enjoys high school. I think she'll be okay.




Here's to making lots of positive memories.

  1. First of all I have had all these thoughts about both of my kids starting high school! Hopefully it will be a year of new discoveries about subjects she feels passionate about and it will be the beginning of a successful new chapter and adventure!

  3. My 4th child just started high school and I too have these kind of thoughts. My next oldest is in his last year of college and back then I was too busy with babies to even think.

  4. Wow that's a lot of questions! I don't know how you are getting any sleep! Hopefully she loves school and has a super successful year.

  5. That's one of the hard tasks for parents. To not worry too much. You'll get to imagine too many possibilities when they are away. Hehe

  6. Good luck to Natalie in high school. I have to say that I honestly never understood high school dress codes. As a female, I found them more distracting to my learning as I was constantly having to have my shirt, capris, and shorts measured by grown men instead of learning.

  7. I just think this is a kid who knows her own value. You've raised her right! I find it hard to believe she's in high school too. When did that happen?

  12. Its crazy the amount of worry we have when our kids start high school. But thats when you are open and honest with them and have discussions before it happens so they have that little voice reminding them what you discussed and not going in with no knowledge of what could happen.. It helps prepare them!

  13. I can totally relate to this. My daughter started junior high and it has me stressed out!

  14. I could understand you for having all those thoughts. It's sometimes hard to accept the fact that our kids are getting big.

  15. I understand your anxiety with your kiddo starting high school. I'm sure your daughter is going to have a wonderful experience because she has a mom that's asking all the right questions.

  16. It's crazy how quick they grow up. I have a 5th and 7th grader now. It's always so hard to believe it when they enter a new school. High school is a huge deal too.

  17. Oh wow, your in the same boat as me. My second is starting high school. I think we do worry ourselves more than we need to as mothers though. I'm sure she'll be fine x

  18. I feel you! I have the same thoughts back then when my daughter was about to enter high school and next year she'll be in college already and all the more I have those same thoughts. All I can do is entrust her to God, good luck Natalie!

  19. I think that's entirely normal to have those thoughts. High school students are at the age when some of them want to experiment with new things, but I'm sure your daughter has a good head on her shoulders.

  20. It is funny how people ask about when things get easier with kids. However, there are so many things to worry about when kids get older. Things will be ok!

    Thanks,
