It was the feel-good social media moment of last November. One little boy’s wish, to be a hero, was granted and those of us who watched won’t ever forget the warm fuzzy feeling it gave us.

As an actress, a public health advocate and former journalist, Holly Robinson Peete has seen it all. And as a mother of four, she’s encountered just about every parenting challenge you can imagine. One of her biggest challenges as mom is building and maintaining a close relationship with her teenage daughter, Ryan.

I’m concerned about so many things: [click to continue…]
