Here are eleven things — not the only eleven things, and not even really addressing sex itself — I would like my 10 year old son to know about relationships and dating and girls, some of them now, some of them eventually: 1. There will be people — girls especially, I suspect — who will like you more than you like them. Your life is yours, and the right person will want to partner with you, to share with you, but will also value you for being a separate and individual person — both in friendships and in romantic relationships. When breaking up with a girlfriend (or anyone, for that matter), .
There will be people who will want to befriend you with whom you will not feel a connection. Don’t take the time-worn strategy of acting like a jerk in the hopes that she will break up with you first so you don’t have to break up with her.
"Don't spend hours freaking out that you're never going to get a job when you graduate because you only did one internship during college.

Also, drink less beer because you will spend the rest of your 20s hating how bloated and gross you look in all your photos from the last few weeks of college." 5.
Ten and a half years ago, my husband and I brought home our firstborn son with trembling hands and racing hearts. Expect the same for yourself, and don’t settle for less.
I didn’t even know where to begin; it was a new life for me, taking care of a new life. Today, I realized that my firstborn son’s feet are bigger than mine. One of the first revelations I had as a mother was looking into my baby boy’s face and realizing that someday, someone I didn’t know yet was going to love him.
