Mom Describes How Her Tween Son’s Brain Works To Explain Puberty

“It didn’t completely stop me forgetting that he’s not my little boy anymore. But it opened the lines of communication.”

Raising boys is never easy. It is especially difficult for mothers who may have a hard time talking about puberty with their kids. Luckily, one mom decided to share her story about dealing with growing pains. She awesomely described how her tween son’s brain would work during puberty.

It all started when an anonymous mother asked for advice on Quora on how to deal with her 11-year-old son. Although several people answered with great tips, it was the response from Jo Eberhardt that proved to be an eye-opener for anyone with tween sons dealing with puberty.

Is your tween son going through puberty? You might want to read this.

The anonymous mother posted the following question:

“How do I tell my wonderful 11-year-old son, (in a way that won’t tear him down), that the way he has started talking to me (disrespectfully) makes me not want to be around him (I’ve already told him the bad attitude is unacceptable)?”

Eberhardt, who is a writer and mother of two, immediately pointed out that the child was going through puberty. She revealed that she also had a young son of the same age and had already spoken to the tween about the situation.

“Ah, puberty. It changes our sweet, wonderful little boys into sweet, eye-rolling, angsty, accidentally disrespectful, but still wonderful young proto-men.

“My first son is eleven and a half right now. (I’ve been informed that the half is important.) I don’t claim to know the best way to talk to your son about this — I’m only an expert on my own children — but I can tell you what I said to my son, and you can take from it anything that you feel is helpful.”

Eberhardt shared her conversation with her own tween son. Interestingly, it involves sabre tooth tigers and an awesome way to describe a young boy’s brain.

What do you think of Eberhardt’s description of a boy’s brain during puberty? Let us know in the comments below.

Man Explains Why Miss Universe Should Not Include Transgender Women

“Let us respect the in-born women as we respect our mothers.”

There is little doubt that Miss Universe 2018 belonged to Catriona Gray, who bested 93 other contestants to win the coveted crown. However, this year's pageant was also the first time that a transgender woman joined the competition. Angela Ponce and her involvement as Miss Spain proved to be a touchy subject for most people.

So is it about time that transgender women should be allowed to compete in Miss Universe? One man believes that the pageant should be exclusive to natural-born women. He explained that the LGBT community should not force inclusivity in such competitions and called for people to understand respect.

Cheating Man Finds it Difficult to Choose Between Wife and Mistress

He decided to consult a wise man to find an answer to his problem.

I’ve heard old couples say that there will come a time when your partner will be tempted to cheat on you no matter how great or perfect “you think” your marriage is. It is as if it’s bound to happen, and that men, in particular, couldn’t help it.

There is no such thing as a marriage that never experienced some rough times. Every marriage has its ups and downs. Even in the best of circumstances, there are going to be difficult times. People change. Circumstances change. Emotions change. But is it enough reason to sleep with someone other than your spouse?

Here's a short story to remind us, not just men but also women, that there's definitely no acceptable reason to cheat on our partner.

A man had a wife and a mistress and he didn't know who to choose.
