Have some healthy fun with your mom!
Mother's Day Activities

Your mom does so much for you every day. She cooks for you, cleans up after you and gives you allowance to buy those new sneakers. So now, it's your turn to pamper your mom! If you're looking for fun and healthy things to do together on Mother's Day, just read on!

Work Up a Sweat

Whether they're picking you up from school, dropping you off at soccer practice, or baking four dozen cookies for your weekend slumber party, moms are always running around! So turn it into a fun activity by going for a run together. Don't stick around your 'hood, but check out a challenging hiking trail, or kick off your shoes and go jogging on the beach instead.

Have a Picnic

Give mom a vacation. We don't mean airfare to Mexico, but more like a day away from the house. Cook/bake/prepare her favorite foods, pack them in ziploc bags and head to the neighborhood park for a picnic. Once you've enjoyed the food, the fresh air and the fun conversations, take a long walk around the park to stop and smell the roses.

De-Stress in the Garden

Did you know gardening is a great stress reliever? You get an aromatherapy treatment from the fragrance of the flowers and you stretch and work out your body by planting and pulling out weeds. As well, pastel colors, like pink tulips and yellow daffodils, are known to have a calming effect on your emotions, so it's no wonder your mom loves to garden! And who knows - you may end up liking it so much that you garden with her even after Mother's Day!

Have a Spa Day

Many beauty salons offer mother-son and mother-daughter packages on this special day. You can get a head-to-toe treatment or focus on one area, like the face or back. You won't be exercising your heart or working up a sweat (unless you lounge in the steam room), but a day at the spa will leave your mom rejuvenated, relaxed and glowing all Mother's Day long.

Hi there! My most important advice would be to be yourself! live your life! do the things you want to do. If you've moved past what happened with your feelings for one another, just go and enjoy your time. If things are weird, it'll be because of her, not you. Stay positive and calm and I'm sure you'll have fun!   Hope you have a good time!

I think that rubber band bracelets are totally in right now. And they are easy to make on a loom! Head scarves are also in as well. Hope you found this helpful!

Wow! This sounds so frustrating! Maybe talk to your mom about what's going on. Ask her why she's doing it. She might just be worried about your safety online. More and more there are unsafe people talking to kids on the internet. I'm sure your mom just has your best interest at heart. See if you two can agree on how to keep you safe online!   Good luck!

One thing that I have noticed is that a lot of people seem to think they should have a boyfriend or a girlfriend as soon as possible, but they don't need to until its the right time just for them. You don't have to be forced to fall in love with someone if you don't want to. Let love come in its own time. And to keep away from any problems with her if she may become mean, try just forgetting about what happened and treat her like a normal person you know, and try to avoid any arguments. If she becomes mean, maybe just walk away for a bit. And if she is still being mean, maybe confront her asking what you have ever done to make her this way towards you. If you have done nothing, then she will have no reason to be mad at you so its not your problem she is being mean so you don't have to be stressed about it. I hope this helps! :)
