Pre-teenager tough time

“The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise”

That’s a comment from ” http://squarewheeljockey.com” I find interesting.

Being a pre-teen it’s a tough age. Not yet a teenager and deep down still wanting to be a child,  realising the parents are far from perfect, their body changes, new voice for boys, growing up so quickly is exhausting and makes them clumsy for  a while because they have no time to adapt to their new size, because of that same new size, adults expect them to behave like teenagers or even adults but they’re still children really… without any wisdom, not much knowledge and almost zero experience of life… That’s tough.
Their whole perception of the world around them, their own environment, gets shattered…

Adjustment is long and hard, painful and scary… they need loads of love and patient guidance to come out perfectly healthy and well balanced, happy and appreciative of every one’s’ effort who helped them through…
I’d hate to be 12 again… unless I can go through it with my almost 40  years experience… ha ha … and even that might not be enough to overcome and smooth out the metamorphosis!
