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.

Driving Around

As a old man was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang.

Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him,
"Herman, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on Route 280. Please be careful!"

"It's not just one car," said Herman, "It's hundreds of them!" continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Your intuition is operating at a very high level today. You tend to follow your heart by nature, so you don’t always go out of your way to be logical or objective. However, more than one event could occur during the day in which it’s imperative that you go with your intuition even though it defies all logic. Have a little faith and go with your gut!

Today may be a roller coaster ride for you. You will face a mix of ups and downs and positives and negatives. It could be anything from a raise to a misunderstanding to a successful presentation to a big computer malfunction. Just take it in your stride and don’t lose your focus. Don’t be surprised if you’re recruited to join a project that is totally new to you. You may be apprehensive at first, but you’ll do just fine. Go ahead and say yes.

You are an excellent friend, and you take pride in helping the people around you. You know this and receive this with open arms who come searching for honest advice. Because of these attributes, you may be thinking about getting involved in a humanitarian cause or giving a few hours of your time every week to your local community. Such activities could become a real part of your life. It’s time to use all of your great ideas to help others.

Time spent in nature or quietly alone can recharge your batteries today. Do what you can to get away and listen to your heart. You have a wonderful, natural sense of style that need not mean spending big money. Focus more attention on being well dressed and making a good presentation.

OK, up and at ‘em! You might feel like you’re walking through sand today, but you really need to shake your booty and get the blood flowing. If you don’t get up and do something, you’ll be a slug all day. You need to clear your head and cast off that bloated feeling. Most importantly, you want to get a good start to the day so you can accomplish everything that awaits you.

Keep yourself open to all the possibilities that the day brings. You’ll be surprised at the incredible opportunities that come your way when you stop judging people and their actions. This is a time to be social and humorous. Keep things light, and remember to always have a healthy perspective on any situation. Words will go a long way today, so make sure to use them with great care.

You’ll enjoy being at the centre of things. Break the usual routines and do something new. Playful and passionate energy fires up your appetite for food and other sensual pleasures. Friends can easily influence your decisions. Since you give your whole self to anything, impulsiveness could be a problem.

You seem to want to become old and wise before your time. Today’s aspects will take you by the hand and lead you back into the heat of the action, experiencing life in all its intensity. Yes, we know you’re really afraid of all this. But if you don’t get back into action, you’ll stay alone in your little corner. The world needs you. Don’t stay at home!

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.
