  4. Nice write up. May use this in a year to come. Really most of this describes my hubby whom is mom did not raise with Christ. Instead she locked him in a windowless room till 8 a good amount of time. He is still learning things he should have 50 years ago. Some of the things you said will help in working with him without aggravating the issue.

  5. I am mother to three boys and two are teenagers. My oldest sometimes has that teenage attitude and corrects it quickly. He is a really good and mature child but this is all new to me and therefore I don’t respond the greatest. Then my middle child, who is my problem child, on a daily basis is disrespectful and has a horrible negative attitude no matter what dad and I do to encourage otherwise…he really pushes my buttons and I respond even worse with him at times. I SOOOO needed this email. Thank you for the time and thought you put into your emails
