It is normal.
For 13
AND 3.
I'll share one of favorite gems from a conference I attended once:
"Don't pick up the rope".
When your child offers you an argument, just refuse to pick up the rope. I have been remaining silent quite often lately as I know my teenager is just baiting me and hoping that we can have a verbal tug of war.
More than 1/2 of my tongue is gone from biting it but it has definitely reduced the struggles we had :-)


Julie, I love this. "Dont pick up the rope." i will remember that the next time I'm tempted to engage in a tug of war. Hopefully our tongues grow back as our kids mature;)
