    Our 13 yo lad has been awful tiresome of late... grumbles, eats like a horse, kinda smart alecky and that math grade is NOT going to cut it. Weve been looking for a circus to sell him to. Well, today, while im in here fooling around on the computer, he hears my gals having a fit so he pops outside to check it out. He finds a huge red tailed hawk in a tree not 10 feet from my run, on a low branch EYEBALLING my chooks! The hawk just sits there looking back, so boy wonder grabs a few pine cones and starts chucking them at the hawk and thumps it one good time before it flys away. My run is covered, but I was just about to let them out to free range a bit. I hope that hawk remembers the feel of a pine cone on his rear end before he comes back around here! We have decided to keep the boy after all. [​IMG]

    You can't judge them at that age. Remember how messed up we all felt at 13? I cut my boys some slack based on that alone. They don't even seem to have a brain at that age other than for telling them how to run their mouth. They will outgrow it, just have patience. That is what I tell my 14 1/2-year old when I want to knock him through the wall.
    Good luck.

    I used to say that I wish there was somewhere kids could be sent from around the age of 13
    to 25 and then get them back as well adjusted adults. [​IMG]
