Hello,

My name is Pam. I am married (14 yrs now) and have one child, a 13 year old boy. He is my world! And......I used to be his, but now, not so much!! I am joining this group in hopes of surviving the oh so difficult stage of parenting I have just entered. Also, I hope to prove to myself that we (my son and I) are actually normal and not the crazies we may sometimes seem to be!!

Thank you all in advance for the future pep talks, answers, etc.

I hope we can help each other grow into the parents our children deserve.


♥Pam♥         fingers crossed

Hi, I am 47 and have an 19 year old married daughter.  I worry about her every day.  She moved and I didn't get to say goodbye.  I guess I could say she is co-dependent?  She will do whatever it takes to make her husband happy and has done that with boyfriends before marriage.  The problem is, these guys have all sucked.  She will have been married a year as of Jan. 21 and has supported the boy the whole time.  I need Moms to friend me who have been through this and maybe have some advice on ways I can reach out to her to help her without seeming like I am bossing her or butting in?  Please.  Her first serious relationship with a boy ended with him committing suicide.  And that was a co-dependent relationship, too, and he was in love with another girl the entire time he was with my daughter.  Did I do this to her?  She was always the type who would do whatever we asked when she was growing up.  Need help coping.  Thanks

Pam,

Hi! Well, you're not the only crazies!  We're crazies too.  My son is 12, but has matured early and is already 5'8" tall.  He turns 13 in June. Ugh!  I often joke with him that he's my teenager already.  (He just rolls his eyes or sighs.)

I, too, used to be the center of my son's world.  He's an only child, so he and I spend a lot of time together (dad works long hours a lot). He tells me things that he never tells anyone else, not even my DH.  Lately, he's getting an attitude about EVERYTHING and has an opinion on EVERYTHING and it usually doesn't jive with my opinion!  It's like my sweet, cute, charming little boy turned into this man-child overnight.  He grew facial hair, armpit hair, has a voice deeper than my DH's, and grew 6" this past year!  I sometimes think back to last year and cry b/c I know I'll never have that boy back.

Is it a good thing they grow up?  Yeah, I guess so.  Do we just have to  let them do it?  Yeah, I suppose.  Do we have to like it or accept it? Nope! Every once in a while my DS will cuddle next to me on the couch or smile when I'm silly (instead of probably thinking I'm a total dork). 

So, you're not alone in this! I'd love to talk with you some more and feel free to sob on my shoulder! I'm sure our boys are doing a lot of the same things right now. I suppose WE need to figure out what to do with it all?!?!

Pray for patience! wink mini

Hi everyone! My name is Viki and I'm a few weeks from being 40.  I'm married and have a 12 yo son.  Yes, he's not technically a teen yet, but believe me, he's extremely mature, has the teen attitude, has definitely gone through puberty, and is taller than most kids a grade above him (he's 5'8").

It's been tough seeing him grow up so much in the past year.  He was my sweet, adorable, charming boy last year.  This year, he's morphed into a man-child who can be cute one minute and then turn on a dime! He's always tired, always "bored" (unless he's on that blessed XBox!), and usually sighing about something me or his dad said.  We've had to rein in the attitude more and more recently.  He has some health issues that are difficult for him to cope with, so we try to be a little lenient with him.  He's under a lot of stress even w/o the health things.

Anyway, would love to hear how some of you got past this stage w/o pulling all of your hair out or just locking him in his room for a few years. :)

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Viki
