Who is Harder To Deal With- TWEENS or TEENS?

We recently had a conversation in the CafeMom group "Moms with Teens" asking who is harder to deal with from their experience so far, the tweens or the teens. In the group they unanimously agreed that TWEENS were harder, moodier and more dramatic than the teens.

What do YOU think? Tweens or Teens?

  • Since I don't have a Teen yet, I'm going with my Tween. She has an attitude like no other, is overly dramatic, loves to argue, and is never wrong!

  • I have FIVE kids, 3 boys and 2 girls and 2 extra boys with us too and now that they are all 15 and older we find that it is soooooo much easier with the teens than when they were tweens.
    Our kids have actually become EASY now!
