I can totally relate!!  My oldest son is 9 and sometimes he is impossible!!  He is the oldest of my 3 children and he acts as if he were the baby again!! (i think this is for attention)..I dont have the answer to this...I wish I did!!!  Hang in there..You are NOT alone on this one!!

Difficult?  That's not a strong enough word!!!  My 9 year old will either be in politics or a banker.  He debates me on EVERYTHING & wants to get paid for EVERYTHING!  The only word other than "I'll do this, if you do that" and "how much will you pay me" is NO.  I love him more than anything in this world, but man does he make me tired!  No sleeping pills needed for this Mom!

9 year old boys are trying to be men, especially when it comes to their moms.  All three of my boys did the same thing.  Be patient and be firm and consistent.  But do choose your battles carefully.  Don't try to battle on every single issue, they will just wear you out.  Good luck! :-)

I feel your pain. My oldest turned 9 in January... HE DRIVES ME CRAZY SOMETIMES!!! The worst is that he doesn't want to be alone, meaning not have friends, but when his brother, age 7, is away for a weekend, he is so sad but when he is home, he picks on him like there is no tomorrow. He acts like a little spoiled teenager girl!
