I understand that children start going thru puberty around the ages of 9 or 10 years old. But does that mean they have to turn into monsters who want to argue about everything and refuse to get out of bed before 10 am in the summer. I am blessed to have a 9 year old girl and a 10 year old boy who are rapidly changing. Yes, I was being sarcastic. They are at each others throats most of day. That is when my son is actually home. My son thinks it is no longer cool to do anything with the family and would prefer to be with his friends seven days a week morning til night and his sister is now his worst enemy. I miss the days when they were little and would play together. They were definately double trouble getting into things together. When my daughter was born, I thought they would close to one another because they are close in age. However, they are complete opposites. My daughter is sugar and spice and everything nice and my son is 100 % rugged boy. Maybe one day the will be close again, only time will tell. Until then, I guess I will have to mediate and keep them from killing one another.
