He didn't kiss me goodbye this morning


Thankfully I'm not too sentimental about such things and rejoice in my children growing up.

But this was the first ever time that my boy would not give me a kiss goodbye when I dropped him to his holiday club today. I bent towards him, he looked at me with a twinkle that told me "not today, Mum - my mates are watching".

A tad poignant, indeed, and made me smile as I realise this was the first of many such moments.

And no, he's not 27!

And when do they start keeping their rooms tidy and helping around the house effectively?

Mates watching is difficult for adolescent males. Try a high five instead - it's the thought that counts (and his mates will think he has a cool mum). Best Regards, Hamish Internet Business Tips Free e-books, articles, newsletter, hints and tips.

When I was a teenager I was incredibily tidy. I was so tidy that when I shared a room with my sister I placed a dividing line (belts strung together) down then middle and instructed her to keep the mess on her side because I couldn't take living with her messyness - my side was 'army tidy'. When she left home I got her room and practically had to fumigate it before I moved into it. It was gross, I found plates under her bed with mold on them and cups stuck to the side! She was a disgusting teenager, but she's really tidy now, her house is spotless. So we can all dream that we will have a tidy teenager like I was! Needless to say I'm still super tidy, unfortunately my husband is not ....hmmm maybe I can put a line of belts down the middle of our bedroom and get twin beds to sit either side of the line...ha ha...

My 15 yrs old hugs me and her mom most nights before going to bed. I also feed my 11 yr old at dinner time about 2 days a week. I try not to embarrass them in front of their friends though both my wife and I convey our being parents and protective (difference between protective and denying them space) Rajiv

Hi, Babs, @ And when do they start keeping their rooms tidy and helping around the house effectively? Care to elaborate a little bit more ? I didn't quite get that . . . Have fun, Andreas Wiedow
