14 year old McKenna

This is a summary for McKenna from 13 years, 9 months old to 14 years old.


Sleep is great! There are no concerns about sleep. She has figured out how to get ready as fast as possible in the morning so she can sleep in as late as possible in the morning.

McKenna is very kind to others and goes out of her way to make sure everyone feels accepted. She especially makes effort in her PE classes to help people feel at ease.

McKenna is very athletic and the type of kid who is one of the first picked for things. Whenever she is a captain, she picks kids first who never get picked first. She doesn’t want them to feel bad that they never get picked first.


We have a strict rule that devices cannot be in rooms with closed doors at our house. If you are in your room with your phone, your door needs to be open.

McKenna took her phone in her room one Saturday and shut the door as she did chores. She was running Spotify with it and wanted it with her.

Innocent mistake. I talked to her about it and reminded her of the rule.

A couple of Saturdays later, it happened again.

This time, my husband and I decided it was time to help her not forget again, so she lost her phone for a week. No access to it at all.

It was a lot, but I don’t think this is something to mess around with. There are so many potential pitfalls with technology that I don’t want to mess around with it.

She was not upset. She understood why we did it and understood we were trying to protect her in the long run. She has not forgotten again!

If you want to follow a couple of accounts that are helpful for technology, I really like:

Soccer is good! This time period was all offseason, so nothing major went on. Kaitlyn and McKenna played in an indoor league. In the end, their two teams were ranked 1 and 2. They played each other in the championship. Kaitlyn’s team won–which is good since Kailtyn’s team is older.


Piano is going well. McKenna does not LOVE the piano like Brayden and Kaitlyn do. Because of that, she doesn’t put as much into practicing as they do. She does enjoy playing, just not practicing.

This is something I love about the piano. It takes a lot of work to get good at it and really teaches you the benefit of working hard over time.


McKenna is doing an after-school competition choir. She loves to sing and is enjoying the choir a lot.


McKenna got her braces off during this time period! She only had them on for about a year and a half. She was really excited to get them off.


McKenna enjoyed the cruise we took as a family! She is pretty easy going and likes most things she does.


6:30 AM-Get up and get ready
7:00 AM-Go to school
3:10 PM-Get home from school (unless it is choir)
5:00 PM-Dinner. Family time. Homework. Chores. Piano practice. Activities. She often has a soccer practice or a game.
9:00 PM-Get ready for bed
9:30 PM-In bed

  1. I was wondering if you’d share what age you give your kids a cell phone? Is it a smart phone? If so, what apps or parental Controls do you have on the phone? Just wanting to get wisdom on what others do. Thank you!

  2. Thank you for sharing this post, I found it very helpful. I was wondering if you still do a family bible time at night? How do you fit it in with activities at night. How is it different from when your children were younger? I also wondered at what age did you stop reading books to your children?


    • Hello! I am glad it was helpful. We try to do family scriptures, but are definitely not 100% with it. Ironically, church has interfered some. My husband was asked to do a calling that in our church that is very time demanding. With that, he has evenings he is just gone from home. It is also hard with old teenagers because they have different stuff going on. I have been pondering on this and feel like I just need to do it even if everyone is not home. That is better than not doing it. I hate doing it without everyone, but I feel like that is best. It is definitely easier when they are all younger! We drifted away from reading aloud as the kids became teenagers. There are times a read-aloud happened together. For example, we like to listen to a Harry Potter audio book on road trips. You can definitely still read aloud with teens, and some might love it. My kids got to where they didn’t want to wait to find out what happened next, so they would take the book and finish it.
