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.

Better to be Safe

A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation to Jerusalem.

While they were there, the wife passed away. The undertaker told the husband, "You can have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here, in the Holy Land, for $150."

The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.

The undertaker asked, "Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your wife home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here and you continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Decisions you make about your money today can have long-term impact. This is a lucky day to set investing and savings goals. Do the math. One small step like saving two dollars a day will give you a more secure retirement. Protect what you have and don’t neglect needed repairs.

You may feel a need to add some fantasy to your daily routine today. Do you have someone in mind you’d like Cupid’s arrow to strike? Well, don’t rely on a cherub to do your work for you. Get out and do some target practice of your own so you’ll be prepared when you see the object of your desire across a crowded room. Keep things light and cheerful.

Today your patience may be tested quite a bit. So make sure to keep a cool and calm head when dealing with situations today. You may have tempers flaring at work or frustrations building up at home. Try to take a lead in calming everyone rather than letting it explode. It will be important to keep emotions in check or words will fly that people may regret.

When it comes to getting things going, this is your day. You have a lot to contribute to anything from work-related projects to parties with friends. If you’ve been feeling low energy, take a look at your diet. Experiment by adding fresh fruit and vegetables as you cut out sugar.

You’ll find little comfort in your emotions today. You may want to simply stick to business. Concentrate on getting things done in your regular routine. Create a plan and stick to it. This isn’t a day to deviate from the norm, nor is it a time in which you’ll find sympathy from others. Stick close to home and take care of your personal business. Time is precious – don’t waste it.

Today might be an emotional roller-coaster for you. But you can channel your emotions in a positive way and try to understand more about your relationships. A new or renewed love interest can be especially enjoyable and distracting. The energy today supports heavy work and a positive attitude.

This can be a very exciting day. You may be feeling a greater desire to find ways to express your creative vision in practical or material ways. It is a time when you can make important contributions to your community. Accept invitations from friends to get out and have fun.

Today will hear some good news, probably something that you have been anxiously waiting to hear. Make sure to spend some time today with yourself and let your mind soak in some much needed peace. If you have been planning to make some changes then today is the day for it since good fortune is smiling your way!

This is likely to be a busy time. Do as much as possible early in the day. Your gentle charm makes you a great favorite with family and friends. Stick with difficult or precise tasks. To feel your best, be sure your diet limits sugar and includes greens.
