Teenagers, Friends, Mother, Parents

A pre-teen is a child who is 11 or 12 years old – two years to go before he becomes a teenager. Parents would have watched him change over the years – FROM a child who cannot be separated from his mother , doing all that she tells him to without a whimper , simply slipping into any suit laid out for him , sitting tight before his books , least interested in anything but a few toys that instantly light up his eyes and satisfy him for an eternity , TO , a child who stands for hours under the shower before being dragged out, who has questions regarding puberty and the opposite sex , who insists that keeping T-shirt buttons open is ”cool “and  has hardly any time to spare for studying what with Facebook , Gmail , IPOD , PSP , PS3 , phone calls , parties , WWF TV shows taking up most of his time.

Where has that little innocent child gone??? In his place there is a kid who refuses to eat ANYTHING that mothers cook. Now he prefers to eat what his friend’s mother cooks or some junk food and any answer to his question “What have you made for dinner today?” begets the reply “Yuck! I can’t stand that dish of yours. Dad can we eat out?” What happens when parents go out to parties is best not mentioned. Suffice to say that they are always given accusing looks that say “Have you fed your son at all?!”

Parents may notice that suddenly the appetite of their boys has grown enormously and feeding them is akin to feeding elephants. Nothing fills their bottomless pits!! You would have just watched your little one eat like he has not eaten for ten years and a few minutes later find that he is again wandering in the kitchen looking for stuff to eat!

The changes don’t stop at just eating, they go on to clothes and make up too. Eleventeens and tweens have reached a stage wherein they prefer to make their own choices even where clothes are concerned. While parents could have easily dressed them in suitable smart shorts and tees…..now they choose to wear very serious clothes, and be less conspicuous, preferably “dirty looking” to looking neat and well turned out. This is the intermediate stage before they stand for hours before a mirror checking themselves out from every angle.

Parents find there are more changes as they reach puberty and watch their boys paying greater attention to their private parts and opening web pages that may not be very appropriate. It’s necessary for parents to watch what the kids watch all the time!

In spite of all these changes they are vulnerable, still “cuddleable” and don’t think twice about plonking themselves on parent’s laps. They still listen to their parents but with the doubt if their parents are all that knowledgeable as they once appeared to be! Now they would like to be walked to school provided the parent keeps a safe distance of two feet behind if walking with kids of the same gender and 10 feet behind if walking with a student of the opposite sex. While in pre-teens they still talk to parents and tell them everything. This, if encouraged will be retained to some extent even after they reach full blown teens when talking to parents can be SUCH a bore.

Problem Solver

Hubby - You always carry my photo in your handbag to the office. Why?

Wife - When there is a problem, no matter how impossible, I look at your picture and the problem disappears.

Hubby - You see, how miraculous and powerful I am for you?

Wife - Yes, I see your picture and say to myself, "What other problem can there be greater than this one?" continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Monday, September 01st, 2014

Today you’ll feel as though your energy has come home. Oftentimes, if you aren’t feeling 100 percent yourself, you’ll refuse to leave the house. Today you should feel much better and ready to take on the world. Your emotions are in line with your actions, and things should be crystal clear for you. You know the route you want to take. The path is obvious.

Friends in creative fields might join forces with you today to start a new project that makes a difference to all of you. This could be something as mundane as a garden in a park or as exciting as a new rock band. If you’ve been thinking of moving in an artistic direction, this is the day to make plans. You’re determined and focused and your inspiration and enthusiasm are high.

Prepare for a surprise today. Perhaps it will come from someone else or perhaps it will come from you. Either way, by evening you’re apt to be feeling quite lovey-dovey and rather spaced out. Give in to the lethargic attitude that might sweep over you. This is your time to play, so put work aside and have a good time while letting your emotions dictate your actions.

Create room for a new start or major change of direction. What is fun? This is where to pay more attention. The more time you spend with any child you enjoy, the better for both of you. Children should be encouraged to play. You’re being encouraged to play as well.

Feel free to enlist your own creativity today to solve any problem that may come your way. Don’t feel like you absolutely need to take a rational and methodical approach. This sort of frame of mind has already been tried. Now it’s time to explore a more intuitive way to complete any task that you wish to tackle now. Exercise more of your sensitive nature.

You have become quite a wanderer today! Even while working, your mind will roam from one thing to another. It’s best to focus your energy on important issues and try to work harder since it could improve your life. Stimulate your mind and feel free to join a class if your instinct is pointing in that direction. Keep a positive attitude and an unbiased mind if you really want to move forward.

Enthusiasm for your own ideas as well as for those of others could catapult you into the spotlight today. You might speak to a group, perhaps on scientific or occult subjects. You’re on an emotional high and looking forward to the future. You’ve got a lot of plans that are not only exciting but also workable. Make the most of them, and don’t be afraid to share them with others.

There is some probability that you’ll want to escape from reality today. You aren’t anxious to face a situation that demands that you commit yourself. Is this because you’re afraid that you lack the ability to assume this new responsibility? This is an honest-to-goodness chance to fulfill your dreams of success. There can be no question of evading it! Get busy!

Make time for romance and a spirit of fun today. If you are single, this is a lucky day to schedule a first date. If you have a sweetheart, think of something you can do that brings you closer together. This does not mean you need to spend a lot of money.
