    😂😂😂 I often remind my husband, the problems we have now ( like bedtime, putting on clothes, shoes) are nothing compared to the teenage attitude and wondering if our teenager is coming home on time and where they are.

    I can't see it being worse. I'm on the middle of toddler plus newborn so it's hard to imagine .

    My eldest is turning 7 and he is already becoming a handful.
    Because I had 4 kids reasonably close together, I got a lot of "oh aren't you scared of that many toddlers?" and all I could think was how much more scary it will be when they are teens. In the midst of it, I'll have a 17, 15, 14 and 13yo (14 is female, others are male). That seems terrifying hahah

    There's always adoption. Kidding. Maybe

    I have a 7.5 and 5yo. He is already starting to talk back and tell me what to do. And judging on how she was during the terrible 2's- f'ing 4's, I imagine her teenage years will be ......interesting. I've long said only one of us might survive those years

    This thread made me snort as I've often thought the same thing. My DD is in yr 7 this year and oh lordy, strap yourselves in girls. My angelic nerd has turned into a back chatting, constantly debating, dramatically eye rolling teenager Probably once a week is "the worst day of my life", along with tears and stomping around..... because I've told her she can't stay up past 11.30 or to hurry up and get to school.

    My 10 year old DS1 is suddenly worried about popularity, his weight and will lose his shizz at the drop of a hat (they say there's a testosterone burst at this age, don't know how true it is). He also wants every device and game that's released YESTERDAY.

    Oh and don't get me started about the cost of older kids I almost have a heart attack adding up what I've spent on my older two this year so far (well into the thousands).
