He is 14 says he's hungry but doesn't know what he wants. I have made suggestions now he is banging and crashing around in the kitchen. Surely I am not expected to produce a full cooked breakfast just coz he moans.

He is 14. He can make his own or go without.

Leave him to it.

Who cooks teenagers breakfasts?
I certainly don't. They know where everything is.

No YANBU!!

I don't cook my dds breakfast either leave him he won't starve I suspect the banging and huffing will annoy you and then you will feel guilty suck it up and leave him to it grin

He made his own, didn't make me any thou. I usually make weekend breakfasts but cba today. Week days it's a fend for yourself approach so this is no big deal really just the banging and huffing and puffing got in my nerves

oh i cant stand them huffing and puffing it is so dramatic

Glad you left him to it. Definitely the right approach. I can't stand that "what do you want?" followed by them saying "Errrrmmmm, Errrmmmmm, Oh, I don't know, what is there......I don't know" Aaaaaarrrggh! As if you want to stand around waiting for their response for 20 mins!

I just say "bagels today?", "weetabix today?" "Pancakes today?"

No choice just get it down your fat neck

DSS knows thats the score!

Cruel woman.

I get the banging and crashing too

He does this when there isn't what he fancies!

Grunt grunt

Let him grunt to his own

I never give mine breakfast during the week - as in they help themselves to the bowls, spoons, milk & cereal and help the younger ones.

at 14 he should have served you breakfast!wink

At 14, what's he doing up before midday ? shock

YABU to expect anything like reasonableness from a 14 year old. No, don't cook for him. He'd find something else to complain about if it wasn't the food, so you've saved him the trouble of thinking it up.

Breakfast for a teenager is at 2pm onwards surely?

ZingSweetMango Sat 08-Mar-14 16:53:31
