These changes bring with them new challenges and sources of entertainment for their parents. Having completed a decade on the planet, 10-year-old kids demonstrate a rare level of swag and our interactions with them leave us amused and perplexed.

11. Mommers level
My 10yo is too old to call me “Mommy” and isn’t quite ready to graduate to full-on “Mom,” so she’s taken to calling me “Mommers” and I quite like it as a transitional name.— SpacedMom (@copymama) September 25, 2020
12. R rated masterpieces
My son is 10 and I let him watch some non-kid shows with me. Any time someone swears he must comment, “did they say SHIT?” “Yes.” “Did they say DAMN?” “Yep!” “Did they say HELL?” “Obviously.” Then he nods, impressed and awed, like he’s taking in a masterpiece at the Louvre.— Ally (@TragicAllyHere) January 3, 2021

10: Mom, can you buy me this dress for school?— Sara Says Stop (@PetrickSara) February 7, 2022

We buy EXACTLY the same watch again.
10yo cries for half an hour because it’s not his broken watch.
