Finally after years of hearing how hard it would be once I have a teenager in the house (forget about when I have two) I now have one.  And yes, some days it is hard, because he is smart and can be as stubborn as I was at that age.  And like all teenagers, he does not know what is best for him in the long run (no, eating starch and sugar all day is not a good choice for life) and yet he is tired of being told what to do.  So I am trying to let go but it is not easy for a control freak like me.  When I am having a particularly hard time I remember that by AGE 18 he should be able to be completely self sufficient in every way.  That’s right, I had better get crackin’. Most of the time though I just enjoy his company, when he is willing to talk to me, and marvel that he still wants to share things with me.  I know those days will be gone too soon. His younger brother misses the company of a boy who used to get down on the floor and play with him, but he’ll be in the same place in no time.

  1. I, too, enjoy the company of my teen. Although she is losing interest in me pretty quickly.
