  • He has such a attitude like he is has pms. My goodness, this is nuts. He has no reason in the world to act like such a brat...sorry had to say it because that is what he is being. He always has something to say about everything. So annoying. I love him but I am going to loose it with him. My blood pressure must be sky high by now. My sixteen year old never put me through this much of a headache...he just gave me occasional migranes lol. But this twelve year old of mine just wont quit. SMH

  • I am ever so tired of it, but guess what? It will get worse before better. My son is 15, and he give attitude all the time especially when he has to do his chores. Ignore it, do not feed into it. If it get to the point where he start to speak out his little tantrums, then that is when you step in and let him know it ends now. Teens are a pain in the butt, now I know why my mom told me to enjoy him when he was young.

  • well I think everyones kids have their good their bads, ups and downs. Of course he can be nice to..but the other stuff is taking over. He wasnt like this last year. Its like he is someone else. I know its teen crap, but I never thought my sweet boy would be huffing and puffing and saying things under his breath every time I ask him to do something minor. I dont think he ever just says "yes mom"

  • My son had a really bad time right when puberty started.... now that he is well into it he is getting better. Same with my daughter, she was at her all time worse as puberty started. She is completely through it now and human again. But I think right when those hormones start to act up is the worse. Be strong and dont buy into it. Say what you have to say, keep to your threats (dont make a punishment threat and NOT carry through)......... but it takes TWO to fight.

  • Mine can be the same way, then the sweetest kid ever. I do swear that mine has had PMS since he was 9 months old. I once asked the pediatrician if I could pop him a midol. She just laughed. I am assuming it will get better just in time for my 10 yr old to take over. Oh, wait, she is already going through the PMS thing too. Yippee.
