Had a bit of a tween moment when my ten year old son proceeded to yell at his father after being sent to his room and called back for talking under his breathe..... Oh my word if this is the start to the teen battle he may not make it to 11! I laugh or I might nail him to the wall feeding him only bread and water. He has never talked this way...well he talks back on occasion but has never openly yelled at his father who out weighs him by at least 170lbs.... I know that if it were me standing there calling him back he probably wouldn't have mustered much of a peep.
Why is that? Is it because I don't allow him to get away with anything or because I am home all the time and thus the disciplinarian?
He's not a bad kid but if you were a fly on the wall your jaw would have hit the floor when he flew down the hallway and began yelling at his father before even turning the corner. I was all the way in the dining room and I about flew from my computer chair to ring his neck... No worries, no children were harmed in this episode. He did however have to call his friend and explain why he wouldn't be attending open rec tonight.
Those who have teenage boys... please tell me this is short lived and he will go back to occasional taking back without the over the top outbursts?!
Parenting is an up hill battle...one day you are pushing the buggy and the next day you are flat on your face with tire marks!!
