how was your mother's day?

was it spent arguing with your 10 year old who argues about EVERYTHING? no? then you obviously aren't me.

someone please tell me the arguing for the sake of arguing will go away. soon. cause i'm exhausted. it takes a lot of energy to fight with your kids dammit. especially when they won't ever be right. how do they not know this?

It doesn't always get easier Jenn. Sometimes, it's just who they are. But other times, it's just a phase. Good luck.

My oldest is 10. And, Lord have mercy, hopefully she makes it to 20.

Well, I was hoping it would go away by the time they turn 10, but after reading this, I guess not.
My 7 year old looooves to argue. I think I have a long road ahead of me ;)

You know really I don't want to follow that....but this is to Jenn...not the idiot that is above me that needs to get a life. I spent the day arguing with my eleven year old because he didn't know we were going to go ALL the way down to the Peninsula to meet my Mom and why did we have to go that far and and and.....God my eyes were about popping out of my head by the time we got there. I didn't want to get back in the car and go home.

And you notice ano's vocabulary is SO wide and varied and hey if you did have a dick I bet it would be big than his..........DUDE!!!!

Wait until Blake hits 14 and all the harmones start raging and then they argue about which way the sun is coming up. Think your tired NOW.......LOL! The old song 'you ain't seen nothing yet" applies here.

Don't indulge him by arguing back. Yeah, easier said than done but it's possible.

Madison pulled this stunt with me for a while until I stopped arguing back. I'd just tell her "You made your point, I made mine. You're obviously not listening to me so I'm done. Come talk to me when we can talk in normal voices", then I'd walk away. She'd just stand there "but...but..." I concluded she just liked to see the fire shoot out of my ears.

When my child was around that age, her nickname was the Japanese words for "endless argument" (which i have sadly forgotten.)

I'd say it stopped about 16, but hey, they are all different.
