Tricky 11 year old boy!

I have an 11 year old son and 13 year old daughter. Separated for 6 years from their father who doesn't see them for quality time at the moment. As he doesn't live with children I believe he has no idea how they behave and I am being made to feel that I'm always wrong with how I'm bringing them up. I'd just like some support about how 11 year olds generally behave to give me confidence that I'm doing OK!Confused

I don't know if this will give you confidence but my DS 11 is a mood-swinging nightmare right now. DS13 calmer. I have no idea what I am doing wrong or right. DH has no patience so I try and keep it away from him as he makes it much worse! Hope that makes you feel at least not alone?
