On Saturday morning I took my son to the neighborhood barber for a desperately needed haircut. After much protesting and eye-rolling, he agreed that his curly hair was out of control. Two weeks of wrangling with it unsuccessfully was enough to get him in the chair and see if the barber could reach that happy medium between messy and controlled –…Continue

Am I the only mUm who wants to ring her 'tween' daughter's neck, because she is as annoying as an ingrown toenail?
What is it with this almost 11 year age phase that, one minute she displays the common sense of a pot plant, walking across the road without looking, and the next she's hanging out the washing unprompted? How did she go from cute…

Homeschool in my house revolves around two pimply faced ‘tweens. Honestly, they aren’t that pimply yet, but every day I can feel it coming. It’s like a deep, gutteral rumbling below the surface and I am bracing myself for the inevitable eruption.

Unfortunately I was head-butted into teenagedom last weekend, when my 12 year old step-son came to visit. Like already, 12? I wasn’t ready for it! Not like anyone ever is…
Him, hubby and I were sitting in the living room taking turns playing Call of Duty. He was sitting in the recliner, hubby and I were sitting on the couch together. It was step-son’s turn to play, so hubby kind of…Continue

Talking back in a rude tone, the sucking of teeth under their breath, the snide remarks when asked to do something, the snappy attitude when they have to do something they don't want to do, rolling their eyes the minute you start to talk is all bad tween behavior, with the most common being back talk. Tween back talk accompanied by a rude tone and body language has to be the single most annoying, exhausting thing parents of tweens have to put up with.… Continue

.....sometimes I don't recognise the 'alien' who has taken over my son JK’s body & walks out of his room in the mornings! One minute he was a charming, sweet, communicative, HELPFUL little boy, who worshipped & adored his mommy (sigh) & then one day....well, one day, I think aliens descended, abducted him, gave him a brain & hormone implant & sent ‘something’ back to me!
