Hi! I'm new

Hi everyone!


I have 16 and 14 years old sons who love to watch Master Chef and cook amazingly delicious food that I never taught. Ha-ha. They just watch and experiment with it themselves.


But as youngsters, I understand that they do have tempers. They would hit each other and that really freaks me out. So I'd just talk to them when their heads are cool.


As a single parent since 2009, I'd love to learn from other parents too how to deal with our techy kid's mood swings. Since they used to update me with their Social Media account password before and now they don't.


Nevertheless, I can say monitoring our teenager's mobile conversations once in a while is the top tip I can give to parents like me.


And the best thing about weekends is going to church and spending time with family.


Have a great day guys!

Thank you @Taylor-RO.

 

I actually found out before, when my eldest was still 11 years old, that he is chatting with a stranger. A female with a "Delicious Girl" username. I understood that he is just curious but he was very young then. I'm so sorry but I blocked the girl's account. It doesn't matter whether she's a poser or not, I just want my son to stop talking to people like her.

 

We've talked about it and explained to them the possible bitter consequences of talking to that kind of person. A year after that, he changed his password but I'm confident that he knows the dos & donts on using Social Network platforms.

 

Now he is already 16 years old and he would still sometimes share with me his cute conversations with his crush. That is if he's in a good mood. Ha-ha

 

I hope I answered your questions correctly.
