My teenagers are typically arguing all the time. It gets really annoying at times, but I understand that’s how teenagers are. Especially when you have multiple teens in one house! We’ve got multiple teenagers that never seem to get along, but I know they love each other even if they don’t show it. Each of them has their own room in our current house, as it would be nearly impossible for them to live in the same room again. Our previous home only had two bedrooms, so imagine sharing a ten-by-ten room with two other kids. No wonder they bicker so much! These nights they argue over just about anything, perhaps the most regular cause of their arguments is the thermostat. The story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears is the perfect allegory to how these kids behave. Each of them has their own preferences, none of which seem to align. My youngest kid constantly wants it to be nice and hot. My oldest child consistently prefers it to be cold if not freezing, and the middle child prefers the middle ground. How I was able to create such vastly different individuals, I’ll never know – but I’ll take their differences over having three clones of the same kid. Once they grow older, they will be much more mature and understand the delicate balance of getting along… hopefully. Until that day comes, I might have to look into some alternatives or solutions to their fights. I know there’s zone-control thermostats that you can use to adjust the temperature room by room, but that’s a little extensive and requires some invasive work. Maybe I’ll just give the kids a space heater, a room air conditioner and a ceiling fan, and see who takes what!
