My 17-year-old son got a couple of hours of sleep last night. The presentation today on the Amazon Rain Forest was more important than a good night of sleep. His procrastination has implications for his parents—compromised sleep and stress to name two. A lot of what I see makes me wish he would just grow up. I don’t know how he might learn to do that. His peers don’t know anything about growing up and that transition was so long ago for his parents that neither experience nor knowledge have much that can be transferred.

A universal road map for growing up doesn’t exist, but somehow young people generally find a way (but not always).
