Sharon’s Blog : Constant pestering in the household

Posted by Sharon O'Donnell on 2010/03/05 12:10:41

TWO blog entries within a month?? Amazing, I know. But I came across a website that I wanted to share with you:

that featured an excerpt from a book by the same name, Raising Real Men by Hal and Melanie Young, and the excerpt perfectly describes the dynamics between my3 sons:-


“Some days there seems to be a pestering competition

going on. One boy tries to get the goat of another, the goat-ee

tries to get back at the goat-er, or is that goad-er? The older bullies

the younger, the younger provokes the older, the one in the

middle goads them both on for sheer entertainment. It’s a race

to the bottom, a competition to see who can be the biggest pest.”
