I am really big need of Jesus in my life and my son's life. He is 17 and thinks he can take on the world. Today he raised his fist at me and called me a bitch. Please can ask Jesus to help our family?

  • I will pray to God. Cause Jesus said to keep the law, the law is you only pray to God.

  • you may not know how you provoked him.. but you did.. it could be a simple word such as clean your room.
    i agree, never raise your hand at a parent.. but some kids do by little words to big

  • No you shouldn't, but a 17 year old just doesn't raise his fist and call you a bitch for no reason.   There is more to this than you are saying.

  • OP here, please ignore the trolls. I need prayers and can't deal with satan's wrath.


    The situation started like this. Yesterday I grounded him for coming home late. I told him he would not go out today. He was very rude to me all day. I ignored it. When we all started doing our nightly chores I told him to get off his cell phone and help. He yelled at me and refused to get off so I turned on parental controls which only allows him to text and get messages from numbers of my choice. He, like others. tried to blame his choices on me because I treat him like a kid. (he is 17) I refused to allow this mental abuse with my son, and it will not be allowed online. I didn't deserve it and I won't put up with it. This type of mental mind games of "you provoked it" or "you deserve it" is often times how spousal abuse begins. It is NOT my fault.

    The question is for Christian prayers not who is to blame. shame on anyone who wants to make the mother feel guilty about this. I don't care the mother did to provoke it. If you can't pray, simply leave

  • Trolls?  Have I touched a nerve?  You are sticking your head in the sand! 


    Why was he late?  Did he have a valid reason?  Is this a one off or is it habitual behaviour?  How late is late?


     I told him to get off his cell phone and help.  Was this a demand or a request?   A little respect goes a long way.


    He, like others. tried to blame his choices on me because I treat him like a kid. (he is 17)   It's starting to sound like you do and who are "the others"?

    Prayer will do diddlysquat!  She has a young man on the verge of adulthood.  If she wants to live harmoniously with him then she needs to start treating him like a young adult.  No that doesn't mean letting him do whatever he pleases but it does mean some compromise and giving him some breathing room.
