So starting from this post I shall no longer be stating categorically which of the three boys what happened to. I have been made to swear to the bro code of “never kiss and tell” or see and tell or something along that line that if I am going to keep talking about the boys. One of them has joined social media and some of the things I post here may damage his “street cred”.😐
Now on to today’s post…
I have never really given that much thought to young love. I know it exists, I mean, I was young once. I had crushes and sometimes dreamed of riding off into the sunset with Prince Charming…But I never actually wanted any boy to touch me😒
So it struck me as slightly scandalous that a girl would meet my son, like him and begin to call and text him nonstop and wanting to be more than just friends😱 I didn’t expect things would happen this fast, I’m not ready for this stage of parenthood…
So how do we resolve this issue? My kids still believe I’m the cool mum, I bet that is why I get a blow by blow account of what’s going on in their lives, seriously nothing is off the table. One of them just started growing penis hair. Yeah, he showed me 😄…and I want to remain the cool mum…
But right now, I have a good mind to call the girl and ask her to stop bugging my son😤. But more important, it tells me that the boys have entered a new vista in their lives and my parenting methods need to adjust. I can’t get away with the few, ‘because I said so’s that I could pull out. Every No is followed by a why and then a why not. So what next?
So we had the talk again about texting and friendship with the opposite sex and setting limits such as not texting too regularly and not texting until too late at night. We have also talked about not using expressions of endearment such as bae, babe, sweetheart, dear, love on girls cos it makes them feel special when all you actually want is an open friendship. I must admit, it was easier talking about this stuff when they were younger…😑
Anyone parenting teens out there? How would you deal with this?
P.s. He likes the girl and knows they can’t be more than friends. He has told her as much. Whether she has heard is a different matter entirely…
Just for laughs😂
I overheard this conversation between Michael and Zaram
Zaram: Why have you not removed your school uniform?
Michael: Because I’m still wearing it!
