Stroppy Bollocks

I really thought I had a few more years before my 10year old turned into a teenage pain in the ass. Is it me or are kids turning into teens way younger? Today I asked him to clear his room up – Ok so that’s a verbal laying down of the gauntlet to any kid of any age but generally he doesn’t mind this job. And this time he didn’t mind up until the cupboard he attempted to pack 8,542kgs of shit in threw dirty revenge smack down on him by bursting at the seams. That’s right – a solid wooden Ikea cupboard split down the side because he forced the doors closed on all that junk.

This act of stupidity right here apparently warrants a temper tantrum because now he’s burst his cupboard mum is going to see the stunt he was trying to pull.

It didn’t go down well at all, particularly the bit where I took everything out of the cupboard and insisted he go through the pile of paper, bottle tops, bent tv arials, wires, plugs and goblin heads and throw away the bits he didn’t need.

Result: Stroppy strop face sulking it out in front of the tv. It’s ok, no one is going anywhere this week until its done!

    I’ve got a moody pre-teen too. And mine’s not even three yet.
