My 16 year old just argues, all the dang time! I can tell him the sky is blue and he'll argue it's purple!

it comes with the territory.

My SD16 will argue with her mom over everything and anything.She tried that shit with me and DH and let's just say it didn't work for her lol.

My DD13 has been on her best behavior-the only thing she's done lately to make me bonkers was beg for a spinner/fidget cube. (which i had to order)

Mine are not teens yet, but my 12 year old argues also.  Then there is that attitude with a capital A.

Those fidgits are cool. My son made his own in his computer design class, which is pretty cool!

and let's be honest-Mom enjoys playing with it while the kids are in bed asleep lol

So, the arguing started with DS13 and now DD10 is doing it!  WHY?  Why do they have to model eachother?!  Now, everyone argues over nothing at all.  It's ridiculous!  I'm just DONE with ALL of it!  I just look at the kids and say, "Why are you arguing?  You know you are going to have to do it anyway?  You're just prolonging the inevitable!  Stahp."

Uh, yeah, they do! lol

So funny, but yes, they are just prolonging the awful. Might as well just get it done instead of making it worse by putting it off.
