Hugs! My mom recently picked up smoking again (she had quit for several years) thanks to my 17 year old brother. He's an idiot and is trying to repeat all my mistakes and then some so my mom feels like a complete failure and just started back smoking one day out of stress. I feel so bad I wish there was something I could do
Not really sure what the point of this was other than you aren't alone. Pubescent teens and pre-teens in general suck, in my experience
Hugs Tania!! Your doing great. I know its hard to quit. But it gets loads easier with time. I am 1 year 3 months cig free. I picked up after DD even tho i quit during my pregnancy. Im just done for good now. At first I quit while preg with DD cuz I was preg. And when i started again I never smoked around her but I just got to a point where the cost and that I wanna see DD get married n have kids etc. Helped alot.
I quit smoking then started back when my mom died. I quit again and it has been hard this pregnancy to deal with the urges sometimes. I have a 17 year old son that has a son and a 14 year old so i know how frustrating teens can be boys exspecialy. Hang in there hun it wont last forever it gets easier as the weeks pass by.
He sprung a last minute book report on me that was 10 pages long. I spent 6 hours helping him over the span of two days, even wrote 70% of the book report for him and all he had to do was copy it down in his own handwriting onto the paper.
(Don't judge me!)
He kept being lazy and skipping sentences and not using capital letters to start sentences or even periods at the end of them...
THEN HE HAD THE NERVE to cry when I made him erase it and it write it correctly.
Yes, I'm your evil mother.
HOW ABOUT you don't HIDE the fact that you have a book report coming up when you've known about it FOR WEEKS!!!!!
I swear he got one pube and lost all common sense!
Wow - 10 pages. I have a 4th grader and his book reports are only 2 typed pages. I am not sure how I would even come up with enough info for 10 pages.
One thing I love re: our kids school. They have to write all their work in their planners. I peek at their planners every night. We also get notified of long term projects. That way I can nag him all along.
My son is famous for telling me about things at the last second, or usually, after they are already past due... He usually just refuses to do any work at all, or the least amount humanly possible! Now that he is finishing up 9th grade we are just hoping he can graduate high school and find something that interests him in life, because it is definately not school!
