My kid is making me a damn nutter

My just turned 13 year old is driving me crazy. If she's not moping, she's shrieking at me. Puberty here we come.

Yahoo! lol I have a son in the same age bracket. He'll be 13 in a few months, but he's well and truly hit puberty.

He's ok most of the time though. I think boys are generally a little easier, but he definitely has his moments.

I feel for you binky.

Don't get me started on my daughter.

Q: Why did God ask Abraham to sacrifice his 12-year-old son?
A: If he'd been 13, it wouldn't have been a sacrifice.

Take your time and be as patient with her as you can. Show lots of understanding and relate to her that you went through all this too...

Oh and as a father of 3 of them, well a 20 and two older teens.....




it only gets worse

Well, I haven't throttled her YET. Seriously, I have three girls 28 13 and 8, so I've been there already and will be there again. With a little valium and a lot of patience, we'll all be fine.

And if you kill her, you've already got a replacement in the wings.
