My son: An absolute Terror

My youngest who is fourteen, has been giving me grief since 7th grade. He is now in the 10th grade and has been on restriction before school started this term. The thing with him is he needs boundaries as he has trouble listening. And he also has a problem with lying.

Since the 7th grade, I've tried everything I could do to keep him in line. His whole attitude is him not caring, which if you're a parent is beyond frustrating.

I was going to college but had to stop because I had to make sure I was home when he got home from school. He got so bad in the last year that I had to go send him to his father to live (my ex). But that didn't work. And it became worse when I changed my job because I come home sometimes after 6 pm. But now my sister lives very close by.

As of now, he is doing better. His routine is he leaves home for school and after school goes straight to my sister's until I come home. So far he is getting an A in one class. I am hoping to keep him to this routine until I can trust him again. After all he is my baby boy.

While I have some control over him, I still feel out of sorts, cuz that boy has a mouth on him, that makes me act like my mom when I was his age. I can say it is not an everyday occurrence but when it happens, I see red.

Bottom line I want what's best for him. Even if I have to force it on him. After all it is my right as his mother. Just saying.

I wish you well. He is in a difficult year. Final years of high school they seem to mature.

I remember my old boss told me one day, she was EXTREMELY happy. I asked her why. She said her teenage son decided to talk to her for the first time in a week! Teenagers, teenagers, they are born to make their parents's hair grey.

And I like the blog's new look. Funky!

I hope things continue to go well for you and him. A particularly memorable moment for me is when I was scolding my son and I realized for the first time that he was taller than me! Took the wind out of my sails, I tell you.

Good luck with those high school years!

Oh- glad you found the TEB blog, too! Today's my day to post- I can't follow the pictures of the past couple days (whew!) but I am talking about my new release.

And hey, if you want any of my books for review, just holler and I'll shoot them over.

hahaha Oh Jenna, I know that feeling!! It started with my over 6 foot oldest and now my baby boy is taller than me! I've told them both, I'd take em out, regardless of how tall they are!! They have to sleep sometime. lol

As far as reviews, if you want, I'd be more than happy to review your lastest and greatest. =D
