My 10 year old son, I take him out and eat at Mcdonalds daily, buy him all the video games, and support him at all his activities. His schooling is suffering and I can't get him to do his homework. His mouth has been like a street gang. I have always been his friend and encourage him . Please, help me be a better parent.
Your task is to raise your child to become a productive, law abiding citizen. That involves being a parent not a friend. The more a child hates you, it shows that you are doing a good job of parenting. Make rules. Give chores and if not followed punishment is earned. Kids today don't know what consequences are. You don't follow rules the consequences are no phones, computer except to do homework, eat what I cook, no friends over or going out for a month of following the rules. Yes,they will hate you but you will have law abiding adults. When you say no, you mean it from now on. The hardest will be for you to hold your grounds. Don't give in. When I was raising my kids all alone..they knew no meant no or the wood shed was around back.
FELL OUT OF LOVE
I fell out of love with my husband, George. What do I do?
If you think marriage is easy your crazy. Sometimes it is as hard as a rock. It is not the honeymoon stage forever. Day to day marriage is like dirty clothes. You have to wash, hang out to dry and then press them. And who puts them away??? Yes, it is not a 50/50 game it is more like 100/100. So put your big girl panties on get the laundry done and quit whining.
People call me Grandma Green. I was born in the year 1900. Being a widow at a very young age with 3 children, I was the first woman libber. I sold Stanley Home Products and made $1000 a month in the 50's. I was the first women in our town to build a house. Remarried a farmer so I took part in running it. Was a faithful church goer who played the organ weekly. I have been through it all and will tell you what I think.
