My oldest now is 12. I look at many of these new threads in parenting and see people struggling with their 3 year old, 7 year old, etc. Looking back, I can see many of these ages for the maturity level they had and reflect that all the fuss was for nothing.
I am not suggesting that these issues aren't real. I'm just saying that looking back, I would feel calmer and more at ease and less worried that I did then.
So, if you have a child(ren) who are over 10 and have a singleton or now have other, younger kids, how do you look at those ages and stages that seemed impossible?
