My boys were pretty easy going at that age. I have a feeling it'll be my dau who ends up causing my hair to turn white (that's if I get to keep any of my hair at all- from pulling it out in frustration! lol :p) Just don't put up w/ the crap- esp, the disrespect. Learn to choose your battles & to keep a sense of humor. Don't allow yourself to feel guilty if you can't get your child something that you either can't afford, or that you feel they should earn or pay for on their own. It's those spoiled kids who will be in for a rude awakening when they finally realize the world really doesn't owe them a thing! Hang in there! GL!!
