Id love to know if there are meet up groups on teens and parenting. It,s tough now a days to understand or relate to their way of thinking. some wont open up and others wont shush up lol. There has to be more comunication and less friction between a parent and there children!! If theres a group out there pls. email me or post on here thanx mom who cares!!
:confused::)

My son is turning 13 in May and so far, he's pretty good at talking and opening up with us.....as well as eating us out of house and home! :)

My daughter on the other hand is only 9 but thinks she's 18! She's the one I'm worried about right now!

I have a daughter that is turning 11 in July so far we are good. A little attitude from time to time but open communication.

My 'wee' ones are now 21 & 18 (boys) and 16 year old daughter. Boys are definately a lot easier to raise than girls IMO, but the 'guy' gene can be frustrating for a mom to deal with at times. I agree the girls want to be older a lot faster than the boys and its scarry. I have to say thought, that I've lucked out and my kids are growing into wonderful adults and are a blessing.... must of the time :)

LOL - My son is going to be 13 in May and thank goodness he's not like this....yet! My 9 year old is more like your son! Seems though, that they take turns with their behaviour. When one is behaving well, the one is going through their 'thing' and then vice versa! :)

To the OP - I can recommend some reading that might be helpful - Do you have a boy or a girl who is a teenager?
