Multiple teenager are NO fun!

Recommended Posts

Having a household with more than your average share of disrespectful attitudinal teens and tween-like behaviours is at times exhausting, disheartening, migraine-inducing, and downright depressing.

 

Today I am tired of delivering sanctions and playing referee.

Yep I hear you.

 

Even more annoying is when they take it to Facebook and think you aren't going to look there, and you find them taking snipes at each other.

Even worse is when some are not teens anymore.

More than one teenager? That disturbance you just felt was me shuddering. I have ONE at home and he is sending me around the bend. The trouble is that he is polite, helpful and communicative to everyone else on the planet so my claims that he is a rude, uncooperative little piece of work fall on deaf ears. I think it is time to break out the surveillance cameras.

Tonight I have 3 X 16 year olds (1 mine, 2 borrowed), 2 X 18 year olds (1 mine) and 2 X 10 year olds (ditto) in the house.

 

I'm in the shed.

 

With wine, music and EB. Well, will have EB until the combined efforts of 7 teens / tweens stretches our internet to the limit, lol!

I find many issues related to laziness can be solved with making teens and tweens "earn" the day's internet password with chores.

 

Or, like today, allow them to invite friends over. DS16 cleans the entire house before his friends come over. I encourage him to be a host quite regularly :)

Haha, my ds16 use to keep his room clean for when his girlfriend was over!! I don't think I've seen the floor in there since they broke up a couple of months ago!! Wish he would hurry up and find a new girlfriend!!!!

I am making a note of this to use when mine are older. Although with how much DS likes technology I may need to put it into use sooner rather than later.

ARGH! DS18 just asked for permission for 4 more to come over.

 

To hell with it, may as well have ALL of the teens in da house, lol!

 

And that's not meant in martyr-like fashion, it's meant in the fashion of if-they-are-at-my-house-I-know-they-are-safe :D

I currently have 10 teenagers in the house plus 2 pre- teens. Only 4 are mine. My husband and I are currently confined to the study and we are having a lovely time together while they all play "slender man" in the dark. We are polishing off a lovely bottle of red while awaiting parent pick- up in the next hour or so.

We gave up changing the password for two reasons:

1. They always found a way around it. I even explained our dilemma to the IT Dept at work. The solution is to take the modem with us. I simply take the power cord or the charging cords... or I loosen the cable connection at the wall - slows the internet right dowwwwnnnn!

2. Our memories are shot and we couldn't remember which password we had changed it too lol

Our 19 yr old cleaned up his room on Friday with no prompting so I have been waiting all weekend to see who he was going to bring home.

 

No one ......................yet :-)

My son is just heading into the Tween years and I'm already dreading it..... I'll have a few years breather and then my two girls will go through it with 1.5yrs in between their ages! (goody! :p)
