my almost 11 year old drama queen

so the other day my daughter texts me the following:
"mommy my life is not fair"
to which I responded:
"you're too young to have an unfair life"
she later told me the reason she said it was because her step-dad told her she couldn't pick on her 12 year old brother.
luckily I was at the store at the time so she didn't see my reaction cause I seriously LOL'd.


Arguing with a woman is like getting arrested. Everything you say can and will be used against you.

No offence, but is there a question there to answer?

LOL. If they only knew real problems at that age, haha. Thanks for sharing and for the laugh- btw, my 10 yo son is a drama king, so I totally get where you are coming from.

We don't always have questions to answer here. Sometimes it's just observations of how tweens can be. =P

I'm either feeling very good Or else I am insane.
The seeds of doubt you planted Have started to grow wild
And I feel that I must yield before The wisdom of a child.
And it's love you bring,
No, that I can't deny
With your wings,
I can learn to fly,
Sweet young thing."

In general, though... I don't get why girls have to be drama queens. I never was, and I can't imagine tolerating it in my children (especially my daughter, who can currently scream and cry to get what she wants because she's nearing on three months old). 

My niece, who just turned 4, was doing something she knew she shouldn't be doing because she thought she was going to get away with it. I could tell by the way she was laughing. I called her over and, without yelling at her, explained why she wasn't supposed to do it and that she is not to do it anymore. I brought her to tears... but you'd best be believing that she isn't doing it anymore-- at least not when I'm around.

I don't either. I wasn't a drama queen when I was little. My daughter usually pulls this stuff with her step-dad. She knows not try with me cause I'm mom...but when I got home I sat her down and told her to knock it off and she did.

I am so thankful I was a teacher before I was a mom. I learned how to avoid this with students that I only had for a short time and translate it into how to deal with my own children.

I think EVERYONE should be a teacher before having kids. I was a preschool teacher while I was in college and it was very hard but I learned patience, negotiations (haha), and how to handle multiple personalities. Hahaha.

I like that idea. while I wasn't a teacher, I was a long term babysitter. I babysat kids all the way from about 11 or 12 up until I found out I was pregnant with my first child (I was 19). at one point I was taking care of 6 kids alone (I was about 13 at the time. the kids ranged from 18mos to 6 years old. it was a great learning experience.
