WARNING: Teenagers Show A Strong Tendency Towards Regression

Back to Prehistoric Man that is . . . it’s almost like their “cave man” genes take over for a few years!

Starting at around age 12!

I am now completely convinced that either Damien has evolved in reverse- or he has had a microchip implanted in his brain and is being controlled remotely (a-la soap opera bad guy) . . . and the only buttons on the remote control are: whine; shout; react hostilely; swear; moan; complain; jump to conclusions; over react; go smoke; frown; glare and stomp around (a favourite when you live in a flat with grouchy downstairs neighbours). Then there is a dial- sorta like a volume button- that dictates tantrum throwing and the severity of said tantrum, and another button that connects their brains directly to their cellular phones so all they are capable of is sending text messages or downloading content.

Does ANYONE out there know how a male teenage brain functions? If at all. . .

    katy katy katy: oh thank goodness! maybe i can survive then…

    nomad: and hormones trigger moodswings which in turn triggers the shouting which in turn sets off the i’m-not-talking-to-you breakfast session… right?!?!?

    cheryl: so are girls any better?

    phats: lol… i tell myself that every half hour or so!

    spookie: now the WORMS are a brilliant idea!

    mommy darling: if i send him there- you’ll have to move in with me!

    katt: oh my word… NNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

  2. I hate to break this to you, Angel, but this isn’t limited to the teenage years. They do this when they are big too, the male variety.

  3. Send him to me …. he will have competition from -u-know-who! Hee hee.
    Every morning I wake up grumpy; this morning I left him to sleep late!!!

  4. Their brains function – but only in a “Me, Myself and I” way. They are so overlaoded with hormones and testosterone that every little thing seems huge – and nobody cares or understands them and they feel sorry for themselves.

    Just keep a jar of worms for him to eat.

  5. Oh my goodness… so glad I don’t have a teeange boy! It’s hard enough trying to understand the ones who want to hang arond with my teenage daughter!!

  6. Just remember one thing, his mind is probably more hardwired to his hormones now than at any other time of his life! 🙂

  7. PFFT! Blogger ate my comment.
    I was going to say my stepdaughter has the same cel phone button, hehe.
