What is it that makes them change overnight?
Are hormones really the culprit?
At 11/12 years old they are still sweetness and light and comply with the usual routine...enter bedroom, open curtains and suggest ...."come on Pops sweety, get up and ready for school, pancakes are ready for breakfast"
Then one morning (13th Birthday?)
Reply... "Oh ouch shut the curtains its too bright! (pulling pillow over his head) and don't call me Pops and I hate pancakes, I will have a coke whilst I do my homework"!
So I have tried everything to lure him out of his pit in time for school
Even tried bribery ....if you get up and ready for school now, like you used to, I promise I will crochet you something nice......

Whats a mum to do with a lazy nonchalant teenager?
