Why Did Nobody Tell Me? The book to lead you through the minefield that is 21st century parenting.
I thought a thread on the most common teen excuses could be interesting and informative.Such as....The last bus never turned up, when they come home late.
"the teacher didn't tell us to write it down""I wasn't in class then""we haven't covered that yet, so I can't do the homework"More usually though just little chirruping noises. Not excuses, I think, but they might be, because I rarely understand them...Morning - "grunty chirrup"Bye - "grunty chirrup"Why are you wet through when you have a jacket in your hand? "sad chirrup"Granny has brought you some chocolate creme eggs - "happy chirrup".I got a really nice hug last night though...
