Ages and Stages – "Personal Ads"

Life with children is one big roller coaster of highs and lows. Sometimes you’re scratching your head in disbelief, sometimes you’re crying and sometimes you just have to laugh. We wanted to take a humorous and honest look at some different stages from both a child or teen’s point of view, as well as their parent’s. So our curriculum editors and creative writers teamed up to create personal ads to illustrate the challenges represented by various key ages and the feelings that are often associated on both sides. As you read through, ask yourself, “Which do you relate to the most?”
