    Dd1 is 9 years old and speaks with contempt to her sister. It is also leaking through in her interactions with me. I am making it clear I won't be spoken to that way, that I speak to her with respect and I expect the same to me. It's just the beginning here. She just turned 9. WTH am I going to...

    My daughter is only 8, but I'm asking this here because it seems like more of a "big kid" issue. I truly do not know where to go with this. How do I end a friendship of my child's that I do not approve of? At what age is it no longer acceptable for me to try to do so? My daughter made a...

    I'm noticing the culture of money changing in our family and I wonder what you do in your families... My DC is 12.5 and has some bits of spending money that she earns doing things for neighbors and etc. But, her monthly spending far exceeds any small bits of money she earns. She is also going...

    My eldest DS who turned 10 in December last has suddenly become shy in dealing with girls. He is in a exclusively boys school. Until a few months back he mixed up with boys and girls and played with them, but of late he avoids girls. Once or twice I have seen him stammering and getting nervous...

    Was thinking about putting this in the religion section or the parenting secition but I think it's more of a developmental question. My 10 year old, who is very mature and empathic, decided last year that she didn't believe in God. I am an open person and think that's a question that's up to...

    Hey there, there is probably a link to this some where on this site, but what are some good books for us moms to read about our pre-teen girls and how to best foster and encourage their development, changes, moods, and selves during this stage in their lives. I'm thinking Surviving Ophelia for...

    I'm just wondering what my place is. My husband's ex wife will not communicate with him and tells my stepson not to tell him things. He told us that she doesn't want him to know that she's sending him to Texas this summer. He is also missing out on Track and Field this spring because she never...

    I'm Vybhav and I'm a stay at home dad. I'm particularly concerned/paranoid about my kid's safety when she's either travelling to school or her friend's house and I was thinking of implementing some sort of location tracking/parental control mechanism, atleast untill she turns 14-15. I was...

    I am not a mother, but I am an Aunt. My sisters daughter seems to be out of control. She is just a young pre-teen! She's 14 year old, and in grade 10. She just seems like she's trying to rebel in every single way possible, and her mother lets her. Let's start with her appearance. She...

Mothering behaviors are so complex and the research in competitive and cooperative experiences in humans is limited. I am...

    I'm not sure how to start this thread. Basically, I never really developed any breast tissue. I ended up with large areolas/nipples at age 12 and that's it. Nothing more ever developed after that. I hit the other puberty milestones - got my period at age 13 - but never got breasts. I finally got...
