My twin and I both have 11 yr old boys. Mine is very quiet and shy. Hers is very strong willed and must be heard.
Lately they both seem to do the same thing. Here is an example: my son sits down next to me on the couch. He makes a sound on his iPod. I say could u please stop, I'm watching tv. Then he does it again. I get up and get myself some tea and that seems to work as it shows him my attention doesn't come with disrespect. He then says "mom can u come sit beside me, I won't do that anymore".. And I just walk over and sit down. My sisters son however, won't stop until his iPod is taken away and he is scolded and sent to his room.. I know we parent different, but all those moms out there with boys...is this an age thing? A phase? Because even though my son responds well to my actions, he will still come the next day and try again..
