Have just read an article about a boy whose dad helped him plan a year of coming of age projects. They ranged from walking the London loop to taking an off road driving lesson, or arranging a dinner party. He did 13 projects in all to reflect his turning form a child o a teen.

Has anyone done anything similar? Or would you consider doing something like this? If so, what would you/ did you do?

no, we haven't but like the idea for DS's 18th (couple of years yet). Am bumping because I think it's a great idea.

Interesting idea...

I suspect most things need to be personal but I suppose some generic ideas might be.. going somewhere remarkable, doing something new and exciting, learning a new skill, reading something life-changing, buying condoms learning wanking techniques bonding in a manly way etc ... and then personalised for preference.

Brilliant idea, I only wish I had thought of it for DS.

I do believe strongly in creating memories to mark occassions rather than just vouchers, latest phone etc. DS seems to enjoy as he often recalls such occasions. Not necessarily expensive just special.
