Picking your battles
Picking your battles with a teenager. New territory for me. My almost 14 year old is lovely. I find him genuinely nice, fun and easy to hang out with. But he's been growing his hair for a year. It is driving me crazy. And the more I (and his sisters) get irritated by it, the more determined he is to keep growing it.
Appearances don't matter, I keep telling myself. And I know this is a nothing issue. But other people seem to have nicely presented children.
What fights do other people feel are worth fighting over with their teenagers? Do people fight over hair length? Or are they too busy worrying about real problems?!
PS I think it looks better in the picture than in real life!
