My son is 9 years old... so we are still Best Friends... There is not a second in the day that he doesn't want to hang out with me... He even tells me he loves 7-10 times a day... and not because I say it first... But everyone keeps telling me "just wait until he's a teenager..." I always say that nothing will change... but maybe I am wrong...
A new survey came up with the average statistics for all the things teenagers do. Just keep reminding yourself... once they make it to their 20s, they'll finally appreciate you... MAYBE...
Here's a breakdown of what the average teenager does to their parents in a year...
They talk back to you 95 times, or about once every three to four days.
They empty the fridge 84 times, or about once every four days.
They sleep in 81 times, or about once every four to five days.
They sulk 71 times, or about once every five days.
They ask for money 70 times, or about once every five days.
They shout at you 59 times, or about once every six days.
They come home after curfew 38 times, or about once every 10 days.
They say "I hate you" 27 times, or about once every two weeks.
I'm not great at math... but the number of times they talk back doesn't work for me given the number of times they ask for money... I'm going to need someone to invent something to keep my son around 10 for a few extra years!
