My tweenager is driving me up the wall this week! He doesn't want to do his homework so I have to nag which get's us both in a bad mood. I caught him and his little friend googling boobs on the internet. I told him that he's old enough to clean his own bathroom from now on because I'm done wiping up his piss that somehow doesn't make it into the toilet and he said he can't because he'll puke. Had a parent teacher conference and although he's testing a grade higher than grade level in all his subjects and 3 grades higher than grade level in reading, he refuses to do classwork or write reports, so he's going to have to repeat the grade next year. I went into his room this morning to grab his dirty laundry and I found a water bottle full of piss!!! Yes that's right! A bottle of freaking piss! He said he was playing xbox and didn't want to stop to go to the bathroom. HOLY FUCK! He's at school now so I get a break for the next 8 hours. I wonder what joy he'll bring me this evening, I just can't wait! End rant, and btw I love my son more than anything in the world, I just need him to get through this phase asap!

10-12 is the WORST age for boys!! I actually enjoy them now that they are teenagers, lol! 

Hang in there ... it will get better :)

I think it must be in the air! My 12 year olds are lucky I love them, otherwise they would have been left on some strangers doorstep in another state yesterday!

Oh my. I'm not looking forward to the pre-teen/teen years at all. I can't stand teenagers, I told my husband I'll deal with toddlers, but the second they hit pre-release they are all his lol. I'd be taking the Xbox out of his room if he can't even be bothered to go to the bathroom while playing. Yikes.

Ugh, I understand I have a 12yo girl, I also have a 15yo girl as well. I can't wait till they are older. Pre-teen and teenage years are awful. The mood swings, friend drama, and the laziness is intolerable.
