I imagine lots of us have teenagers going back to school tomorrow
I've been asking mine to get their bags ready for school tomorrow all weekend
It's now half past eight and apparently someone put a pile of school books in the hall on the last day of term and now they have gone
I have recollection of said books and I'm reAlly pissed off and think it's about time he sucked it up
Aibu
I feel really guilty blush

I have no recollection of the books!
He's storming around the house bemoaning I've moved them

Ignore the behaviour as much as possible.

Sympathise.

Repeat.

My 9 year old was gitted to find I was not about to search for her leotard at bedtime. She has told me on 3 different days she'd packed everything on the list. I think a teen can get bloody looking!

Been there! Let him learn!

DD (13) came downstairs at 9.45pm recently simpering "Mummy, will you help me? I didn't realise this homework had to be typed and it's due in tomorrow ..."

I don't mind the polite requests, but I see red at demands, and blaming me for loss of stuff/homework not done!

I'm not very good at the sympathising thing confused
