Science has determined that as the child enters his teen years there is a major
hormonal change. It is not that they don't want to go to school, but that their body needs a whole lot more sleep to keep up with all the changes going on inside. Trying to get them to bed earlier is just another battle. the first thing is the growth spurt they go through. Their bones and joints ache. They have mood swings that can make menopause look like child's play. Their favorite foods are now the most hated ones. Burger Kind is their new idol. They hate their siblings. Why couldn't they be an only child. Someone's else mother never makes one of his friends do the mean things he has to do. Like go to school and do homework. Forget chores. They have. And heaven forbid. DON'T WASH THEIR FAVORITE JEANS!
I know. I went through it. Times five. Try having four teens in the house at the same time. What was I thinking having my children so close together.
Illegitimi non carborundum!
I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had spent more time doing housework"
