Now, I know that some of you are thinking that I'm giving away TMI with this post, but really - when should I be expecting the hormones in the kidlets to hit the fan? I need to know. I've been wondering but not doing too much research. I've been tapping into minds of other moms, although I do not ask for advice easily. The general consensus: yes, it's hormones (both of them) and no, it's not going to be over anytime soon.
With that tidbit of information, I'm sure that I should be planning my responses to both kids with more empathy. With more patience. With more compassion. Alas, I have not. And, I'm a little upset with myself about it.
Today, I received an email from a newsletter to which I subscribe. There was an article called "Holy Hormones" which I think you will enjoy, especially if you are struggling with this in your homes.
I would love to hear what everyone else who has tweens in their lives is going through - and how to best handle the outbursts, tears and screams. (please?)
