I have found many wonderful AP blogs about parenting babies and toddlers but I can't find any about tweens and teenagers.  If you guys have found any, of if you have one of your own that I dont know about please give me the link...thanks!

My kids aren't quite there yet, but I'd love some, too. I think what happens is that, as kids get older, parents feel more uncomfortable about blogging about them without their explicit permission. I can think of two bloggers/authors off the top of my head (soulemama and Anne Lamott) who have mentioned this.

As the mother of 3 teens I have to say its more to do with the embarrassment of what the teens can make of your beliefs that stops most people!   My kids know they feature in my blog, but I try to do it with a sense of humour and it is more about me and my coping or not coping rather than them.  I think my blog is in my profile - I'm new here so not sure if its ok to put the link in a post.

I think part of the equation is that adolescence is largely about giving kids a safe space to define themselves and try out their wings.  We are hopefully reaping the rewards of attachment at this point, but I don't know what parenting "practices" would be considered "attachment" in these years.  The bloggers who are/were AP are probably not using that word so predominantly making them harder to identify.
