Thank you Scarlett and Samlet
She has been hormonal for quite a while before the 11+ stuff and is mature in many ways. But what with my hormones and hers.....Well you can only imagine what out house is like at times
You know slamming doors, raised voices, over reactions, sensitivity etc ( and thats just from me
) and am finding that, compounded with the 11+ is just making for quite a difficult journey. Many times she has said whilst she is having a 'hormonal induced tantrum' that she doesn't want to do this, que more slamming doors, and to which mostly my reply is, "that is fine, your happiness is the most important thing and I want you to be happy" and then the next thing it is big cuddles all round and she says of course she wants to do this. Its the ups and downs that I find quite tiring.
Is probably normal 11+ prep behaviour but coupled with how she is feeling hormonally I think her feelings to all this are exasperated.
Samlet I agree the exam is pretty much as soon as she goes back to school in September so I think you are right in that they are realising is not long away at all.
Scarlett, think I need tips also on how to not emotionally yell back, failed on that one more than once I think
Thanks for the advice
