  • Sorry, if it was my 13 year old he would have no teeth left. I don't care what your ex is against, your son needs anger management and he needs it now. Before he knocks you on your ass. If the ex doesn't like your son in counseling then tell him to take him and deal with it himself.

  • If my child ever even thought of talking to me like that he would be miserable. Everything would be gone until he learned to treat me with some respect. Literally take the door of the hinges and leave him with just his bed, blankets, and clothing, and make him EARN back every luxury he had before. NO WAY should a child get away with that!!

  • He would be getting my palm across his mouth. Boys should be raised to respect women.

  • That is the one offense where my son ever phlsically diciplined anymore, any show of open hostility , or disrespect will earn him a quick slap in the face.

  • Wow....you have a lot of self restraint because one of my kids talked to me like that (it's never happened) I have a feeling that my husband would knock him in to a wall. And, we don't even spank our kids, never have. That would be the one thing that would probably make us resort to something physical. It's never presented itself but I can imagine my husband coming unglued if one of our sons ever acted that way towards me or to any other female or to him.

  • My mother is going through the same thing with my twin brothers and any time they pull that stunt, she pops them full in the mouth and takes away EVERYTHING. No computer, video games, phone calls, or life in general LOL. They go to school, come straight home, and sit in the living room with their noses in books until their grounding is up. She did the same thing with me and now... I'm a massive bookworm.

    But definetly nip it in the butt now before he begins to think that's how he treats all women. If he can't show respect to his own mother, who are we to expect him to show respect to other women? I say knock his teeth out, Mama!
