Through the eyes of an 11yr old

November 12, 2010

As much as I like to think I can sympathise with the trials and tribulations of my 11 year old son.  I have to admit it’s not happening for me.  Someone is erasing parts of my brain. There was a time when I could remember being 4, then I could think back to about being […]

What not to say to your kids
