My youngest is in this phase and it truly does describe him to a "t". Matthew is at that stage where he realizes he is less of a kid and more of a teen and isn't always happy about that.  He was just lamenting yesterday that he is too old for VBS this year (for the first time).  I told him he could go as a helper and he said "I want to go as a kid". 

And oh, the critical spirit.  He truly is critical of everyone, from strangers to his parents and most critical of himself.

I was so relieved that the authors of this book agree with my approach to the internet and supervision.  Many of the boys friends think that my husband and I are "the strictest parents in the world" (which I assure you we are not) however I am involved and careful.  I was thankful that this chapter validated my position on that.

Love this book!!!
