My two teenagers are hard working and polite, help around the house and don't smell. They do have annoying haircuts and appauling taste in music though, but you can't have it all.
Loved reading your post, Clari Nicki!
Mine are pretty lovely too, except that one (when he's home) seems to live in a completely different timezone
As regards revision, although I think my elder son's attitude to work has improved at last, getting revision out of him for GCSEs, AS and As was a nightmare - 45 minutes and he truly felt that he'd done a day's work - so I admire your young group immensely, Clari Nicki. My younger son has made a start revising for GCSEs and I think has a different attitude towards it than his brother, so I hope that I won't be tearing my hair out quite so much this time round. He has, however, decided that this is the perfect time for him to teach himself the sax and to play more piano - of course I'm delighted, but now I'm also highly suspicious: has he simply found a form of procrastination that he knows might work with me? Am I likely to be so pleased that he's upped his music that I might not notice that he hasn't yet sat down to his history? Hmmmmmm. I think I might have to keep an eye on that one....
