I have a friend who is constantly criticizing her son. Granted, he isn't the best athlete or the smartest kid in the class, but it isn't like he is a total failure. We have boys the same age and have commiserated over the years about some of the problems we have faced with their “head up their butt” issues. However, I’ve come to accept my son’s failings but she can’t, and frankly I am starting to worry about her son’s self esteem.
What can I say to her to help her accept her son as he is without offending her? I feel so bad for her and her son.
