Mothers Of Young Teens/Preteens

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

I wanted to start a thread for mothers with pre-teens/young teens for quite some time so here it is.
My youngest just turned 13 last week so I am still getting use to him being a teenager. He has three adult siblings, so I have been through this before, but they were closer in age to one another and so they had each other to lean on. It is very different having just one teen(and only one child)in the house.
So if you have preteens or young teens(I was thinking 11 to 15), this is the tribe for you.

Take Care,
Erika

Erica, I'm moving your thread to this forum instead of FYT. It really belongs here.

I have 2 preteen girls- my older one is definitely in the "preteen" early puberty stage, while the 9yo is still very much a "little kid" in many ways.

I have an 11 (12 soon) and 13 yr old.

We have not had any issues of personalty changes yet, so I can't contribute anything in that way yet.

My daughter is 12, she'll be 13 in January. She's an "old" 12, though...

my oldest will be 11 in 3 weeks - definitely hitting the pre-teen stage. Heck, I have a 4 yo who acts like a preteen, thanks to big sis!

I hear ya. My oldest was old from the get-go. i am getting a bit of a reprieve, I think, with my middle two.

I have no idea what my youngest might be like...well, maybe i do. Which is why I am glad for this reprieve.

Hey, wait a minute! What am i saying? Even my old soul is a cutie.

I really enjoy my big kids a bunch. I love sharing ideas with them in such an equal way.

I think I'm thinking about me getting older...lol

I can relate! You can't help but think about getting older when your child is suddenly as tall as you are. It's fun having big kids, but I sometimes wish I could slow down this growing-up process. It's happening so fast, I'm afraid if I blink I'll miss something.

Just wanted to subscribe!

I'm thrilled to see this thread. Thank you for starting it! I see so many threads devoted to young children and toddlers - it's really nice to see moms on this board going through what I am!

My oldest is 11.5, so I'm new to this!

I'm going to run now and read the rest of this thread.
