Nothing earthshattering just an annoyance.

I think it's one of those things they just do without thinking.

Yes, I agree - sometimes the brain doesn't seem to be connected

S&R are only allowed to eat in the kitchen and family room, which is just off the kitchen in full view. I tell them I don't want BUGS in the house, so we confine eating to the rooms we clean up regularly. They also leave things in the FR, which drives me crazy. They're 11 and I don't think it's too much to ask! I remind them and let them know they'll lose the privelege of eating in the FR and that helps for a day ;-)

You sure you're not talking about my ds11?! He'll say he's hungry. I'll list a bunch of options (this is usually at about 8pm; we eat around 5pm), and almost inevitably he's no longer interested. And I really vary my choices, from goldfish to pretzels to milk to cookies to marshmallows...(forget fruit - that gets an instant ugh every time), and usually he just loses interest. And to top it off, he's never really hungry for breakfast, which I'd think he'd be ravenous if he was hungry at 8pm.... I don't get it.

OK, I'm glad to hear that my pre-teen is the not the only kid who acts like his brain is not working right.

Yes, I'm finding "normal' is a relative term at this age.
