Im not there yet, my oldest is 12 and special needs and my next one in line is 10. I try and be consistant now and utilize "Lose what they use" when they do something wrong.
I agree...We have 6 daughters..Our 4th dd is turning 13 at the end of the month...They will love you then "hate" you all in a span of 10 minutes....Get ready for some fun....lol....Then I'll have 2 left to go through teen years....
idk hun but GL.
I'm not really sure to be honest. I haven't reached that age yet but observing other people raise teenagers and such, you're consistency is key. As well as always following through on your words. If you say you're going to punish them after one more time of doing it then it is very important to do so or else it'll resignate with them that they can get away with things.
However, I think at any age during a child's life consistency and following through is key. I hope you get some better ideas!
I think consistency is a good thing.
My husbands favorite line is, "Persistent and consistent"
