  • He has plenty of time to grow up. kids aren't kids anymore! Society wants kids to be all mature younger and younger.

  • The 23 yr old is in a whole different place in life then the 11 yr old. Pretty much same for the 13 yr old. Remember when you where in junior high and there was some kid hanging around from the elementary school? The 13 is trying to copy the 23 yr old, to show how grown up they are. Give your 11 yr old lots of love and attention, let the adult chidlren,,,lol have their space

  • You need to step in and tell your two oldest that he is doing perfectly fine. That he doesn't need to grow up any faster then he already is.

  • Well unless your older children are paying the bills or house payment, I firmly believe they have no say on how you bring up your other children. As long he/she is happy and healthy.
