Hi! We are Cindy Goodman (raisingteensblogger) and Raquel Alderman (mominthesprings). As former co-workers, we spent lots of time in each others’ cubicles discussing our daughters’ increasing moodiness or our sons’ inability to put their cell phones down. One day, we decided to turn our experiences into a blog where we could commiserate and connect with other parents of teens.
Between the two of us, we are mothers to five teenagers ranging in age from 13 to 19. We love our kids but getting to them adulthood has us grappling with our sanity. There seems to be so many worries that parents must deal with in the 21st Century.
When we’re not blogging about our teens, our day jobs keep us busy. Cindy is a nationally distributed newspaper columnist and Raquel is the marketing director of a large hospital system. Our off-hours are spent exercising to look the part of the “fit mom”, chauffeuring our kids around town, and finding time to hang out with family and friends.
Thanks for reading about us! We look forward to hearing from you.
