    You so have your work cut out for you when your DD hits the teens lol

    Boarding school is always an option. Or divorcing DH and letting him have full custody of her

    Honestly, I find teenagers so much easier! I work with teenagers with some pretty challenging behaviour, but to me it's usually a breeze compared to my 4 year old!

    I think people have way more patience with other people's kids.

    I much prefer the teen/pre-teen stage to the toddler years...so far anyway.

    Default For those of you with babies and toddlers....

    Eeep!

    My eldest DD is 11 yrs this year and already I'm noticing a shift. What once would have rolled off her back, is now turned all melodramatic! Same with the back -chatting and oh woe is me of late.

    When I had 4 kids under 5yrs I thought it was full-on, but the thought of 4 teenage girls is scary to say the least!

    Not me! :P
    Well, I have to behave more patiently with them that I do with my own, but in the occasions I work with younger kids I find it just as draining as being with my own kids - I just get paid for it!

    My son is nearly 11, and Im not sure whether testosterone surges at this age, but he has changed a lot the last 2 months. More so getting anxiety and worrying about things he normally wouldnt worry about, it is like his brain has shifted up a notch and suddenly he is actually THINKING about things!! It has been pretty exhausting

    I am glad to say I have survived all of the 'bad times' . Once all the children are adults then you can relax. At least that Should be how it goes. I can still remember the
    teenage wars, and the toddler meltdowns, I think the teenage years were the most difficult. But we all survived and now they are all great company. One day at a time, is how you cope. Marie.
