The kids have me at my wits end. Robin's nest has been disturbed (after I told them to leave it alone) to the point that it is upended and the eggs are smashed on the ground,of course, when I ask who did this, nobody did it, yard is a mess, but when I ask them to clean it up, "I didn't do it", bedrooms, same reply. Boys being boys all afternoon, wrestling, tustling, being boys, 6 year old from nextdoor finally had enough and boots one of my boys in the balls,the one of my boys that this happens to (who is 10) is crying like a baby, neighbor child that they have been abusing all day is a jerk, blah,blah, blah,...
It's all fun and games til someone gets hurt,...
I'm not cooking dinner. Children will not starve, as there is plenty of food in the house. But as they are coming to me saying "what's for dinner?"
Whtever you can prepare on your own...

    It sounds like you have been at my house all day.

    I think these two boys live to fight with their older sister and when she is not home they torture each other. They are in the kitchen fighting over a pizza right now[:(!]

    Does your older girl pair up with one boy just to annoy the other boy? and then alternate her alliance?
    Is it girls that are evil, or is the triad?

    Oh yeah, she has switches alliances and sometimes she goes on the warpath and can't stand either one. Then they gang up on her.

    She is 16 and they are 12 and 10. When I get real mad at her I make her give them a ride to school or make her ride the school bus with them.[}:)]That shapes her up as it is worse than death to be forced to hang out with the little kids.

    As far as the 12 and 10 year old go. There is not much I can do to dampen their spirits for long. Punishment only lasts a few days and they are back to their mischievious selves. I think they take after their .....mom[:p]

    Seriously though, my daughter is oozing hormones (got boys sniffing around all the time[:(!])so her moods are to be expected in this awkward time of her life. And if my boys weren't acting like a couple of rowdy boys I would be worried.

    But of course I am worried to death as my daughter went into town with a boy from down the road and another boy just called here for her[:(!][:(!] And the two boys are now talking about making a bow and arrows (I took their bows away after they shot holes in the garage door.

    Does it ever end?

    rcrxs:

    Sounds like kids being kids. I just got home from a pool party at my sister's. My kids are dead tired, just fell asleep. I have a 9 yr. old boy and a set of twins, 6 yrs., boy and girl. Looks like the wife and I will have "quality time" tonight [;)], as soon as I get off the computer.[:)]

    I have a son 16 will be 17 in a few months, turned out to be a good kid, except he has one big flaw, his mouth is not sewn shut ,my youngest just turned 12 yesterday, and he learns from his older brother on what not to do, but is starting to become a know it all

    I don't know if you remember a thread I made last Christmas, but after they opened up a thousand bucks worth of gifts I bought, they both went over and thanked their mother, of course I had nothing to do with it, I am only the guy who fixes all there stuff, and has an open wallet when they need something, and teaches them things, at first it disturbed me, but I have since decided I am just glad I am here to be taken for granted

    It is easy to get caught up into the moment of the madness, me and the wife both have a peak point of breaking, mine for the most part goes unnoticed by others, I have learned the signs of hers, and try to head it off, usually a day together without them, or a all night drunk, with a good breakfast seams to really do wonders
