Well, let her choose to be whoever she prefers right now. It's a pretty difficult inbetween period. I think there is time she wants to be a child and then turn around, prefers grownup.
My son has acted like this for more than a year. Sometimes, he's very articulate and suddenly, he acts like an idiot, giggle like a 5 years old.
But he's progressing slowly toward more adult than a kid.
But the thing is, we're ahving some family problems, it's difficult for everyone, but I need her help, I need her to be a grown up once in a while. Sometims I think I shouldn't expect that from her and put her under so much pressure, but the thing is, I really need her help, and it's not only my problem and I can handle it on my own.
I know she tries, but sometimes I get so mad at her
, I know I shouldn't but it's really difficult.
Also, there's the fact that I have always been very matture for my age, even when I was 6 or 9 or 10, I was always very matture for my age, and I keep making the mistake of expecting her to do, think and react like I did when I was her age. I know I can't and shouldn't expect that from her.
But don't get me wrong, we fight all the time, but have a great relation ship, she looks up to me for some reason, and that has always helped our relation ship. She is the most important person for me in the world.
Did your son become 13 this year or he is still going to become 14 in 2009?
