They are completely out of control and I don't know what to do. I have been a single parent all my adult life and with my younger 2 boys I am so lost. They are so different than my older 2. My older 2 had respect for me and these 2 don't , even a little bit. I don't get any child support and work all the time and just started getting garnished ....again...last week!!! They don't ever want for anything. I spoil them to death. We have every game system (which I recently have taken away), they have internet and cable and all the good food they could ever want. I am so lost and I want them to turn out good. Please help!! Cathy

You can't really control your kids, all you can do is try to guide them or influence them to make the right decisions. Being consistent with your threats. Picking and choosing your battles is a good plan. Maybe your giving them too much and they need to learn to earn things. These of course are just suggestions. Don't know the specifics of what is going on, so that is all I can give is suggestions. Good luck.
