The lovely life of hormones

I have always been worried about my little girl coming into the life of change. I have never thought much about how to deal with my boys. Till the last few mths, and boy it has slapped me all in the face. I guess being a girl , you worry about the girls cause you know what they will go through. I didn't realize that boys have a harder time than most girls. Oh my gosh! I have always tried to raise my kids to be good kids, but I didn't think about the truth of reality. Things they can't help!
The other day I got my cable bill in and it was $200! Someone had been ordering dirty movies. WHAT! On my TV. I was mad! My husband & I were gonna fight! I told the kids I was upset and do chores and not to push me. The next thing I know my oldest son is having a panic attacked. I had no clue! I rushed him to the ER. While the nurse was checking him out and asking questions, he said I need to talk to my momma. Did my mind ever get blowed. He said momma I have a problem and I'm loosing my mind! I'm having big boy problems. I felt so bad for getting so upset. Him and I went and had a big talk. I let him know that this was part of life. I also told him that I always exspected to mind not be perfect. (He had been ordering the movies. )
I understand in a way how he feels, but I don't know exactly how to help him.
If anyone has any suggestions, it would be apperciated.

Last week we took Spring break. I thought that I would get alot of my pics on my blog but didn't. The kids and I were so busy. So, this week we started right back in the same ole same ole routine. Well, Tuesday my oldest child had an anxiety attack. I think it was over his spelling sheets. (I do know all of the why, but for the privacy of my child, we'll just leave it with his spelling. That was part.) So, Wed. I went to Wal-Mart and bought 4 bubble wonds with flavored bubbles. ($1-each) That was our schooling for Wed. We went out and played bubbles! Lots & lots of bubbles! We spelled with them, we did math, and a little science. Mostly we had fun!! That is the cool thing of Homeschooling. You know your kids very well and you work around their needs not some system.
Boy!, I love homeschooling more and more.
