When your children are teenagers, it’s important to have a dog so that someone in the house is  happy to see you“. Nora Ephron

We are both mums of older children, friends, a nurse, a counselor and both ex-teaching assistants. Over several years and countless issues that came our way as our children grew, we realised that there is very little out there, in the way of resources, to support parents of older children. Growing children bring a whole new bag of tricks with them, some of which make you miss the simplicity of sleepless nights and dirty nappies. So this is the basis of our website – tweens, teens and young adults and their boundless, unpredictable individuality!

“I raised five children. They all have different personalities. All of them have different issues, different levels of success. That was a learning experience for me” T. D. Jakes



I have three children – two daughters aged 17 and 21 and a son aged 22 years. I worked as a nurse for many years before and after having my children, including two years in Sydney, Australia. I have since worked as a Teaching Assistant in a large comprehensive school until leaving to work on this website.



I have a daughter aged 11 and a son aged 8 years. I studied Drama and Psychology at Worcester University. I delivered Relationship and Sexuality courses for adults with learning disabilities for 7 years, before starting work as a teaching assistant.

Saf and Lynne met at work as teaching assistants in a large comprehensive school. They work primarily with children with special educational needs as well as the general student population.
