I have just had laugh at my eldest son because my youngest is going swimming today with school and he's asked if I will write him a note so he can wear goggles, which he doesn't need to wear, really. So I've told him no he will be ok without, so my eldest son chipped in it's ok I'II write you one don't worry...lol.... Do you have older and younger children and do the older ones parent or try to parent the younger ones ?

Yep I think they all do that... I am sure your child thought that wearing goggles would be cool.When my children go swimming in a pool I always have them wear goggles they only have one pair of eyes, children urinate in the pool ewwwwwww. Remind him to always keep his mouth closed as well

You are very welcome, I myself hate public swimming pools but the kids love to go and spend time with friends. Make sure you write that note and tell him that grammasnook convinced you lol

I only have one child right now, whom is 8 months old, so I do not have the older and younger child thing going on that you do. I can however say that I do believe older childern try to parent youner ones. Just because when I was about 9 or 10 I pretty much raised my sister. My mom worked 2nd shift, so she was not home in the evenings to help with us. My dad really did not help with my sister much. So I did parent my sister and helped with my brother. My brother and I are only 2 years apart and my sister and I are 9 years apart.

Hi Hallmarkjl... I think like you have said older children do, do it and it does seem to come naturally to parent the little ones, My sister and I would parent our two younger sisters and were very protective of them, yet between each other we would have a lot of sibling fights (still do and were in our 30's lol) My oldest son was only 4 when I had my youngest lad and from the moment he saw this new baby he just loved his little brother and it's so sweet to watch the relationship they have together, although this morning when he said he would write a note for him I really could not stop laughing because my older son was so serious to, I asked him really would you write him a note and he just quite simply said Yep ! which tickled me even more, I have to wonder who gave him this power and I think it must be me..lol

I have two daughters. They are thick as thieves. I can't scold one without the other supporting her. The elder one is verysensitive andcannever see her younger sister unhappy so she always does a lot for her. Th younger oneis a brat and is selfish at times, but when in a crisis she rushes to her sister.

Hiya mercuryman3a...that sounds so like twins the relationship your daughters have, mine can react like that one can be telling me about the others behaviour and always the chanting "tell her/him mum ? " so I do and what happens they gang up on me and stick together, so I've learnt when to get involved and when not, then I'm accused of never listening when I opt out..lol...been a parent were in a no win, win situations.
