Tweenage Warfare

by Debra White

My daughter keeps exploding!
Blows up without a warning.
Her temper is appalling -
She loses it at nothing.

For ev'ry fight she's spoiling.
A battle she's provoking.
It's really quite concerning.
She used to be so loving.

On egg-shells I am walking.
My final nerve is jangling.
I'm hoping and I'm praying
this tweenage phase is fleeting.



Tweenage - (of a child) Between the age of 8-14 years (Collins English Dictionary)

My own personal tweenager is aged 10.
The struggle is real... I blame those pesky pubescent hormones.
