Help!!! My son is so mean.
how is he mean?
He tells me that I am a redneck, I am an idiot, and always tries to make deals with me when I ask him to do something. No he does not hit me or anything he is very vocal and very smart.
With my first post I may have given you the wrong idea about my son. SORRY!!!
How old is he? I'm guessing 14 or 15.
Are you married to his Father? Divorced? Other children living with you? We would love to know more so we can help. :)
Quoting bizzeemom2717:It sounds like he's not respecting you. I would sit him down, explain that it's not ok, I don't care how smart he is you are the parent, he needs to respect you and until he shows some respect take away privileges like his cell phone or video games.
This, and follow through with whatever punishment you outline.
I think this is when dad needs to step in. My husband would have set my son straight if that happened. No one speaks rudely to the woman he loves. I think it is good for a man to set his son straight in situations like this, it teaches him respect, and shows him how real men defend their woman's honor. I know Im on the old fashioned side but I think this is best fixed by dad.
Oh my ,mine have said I am being a mean mom sometimes...it's true sometimes LOL but if they were to call me names we would have a serious chat.Including dad.First does he like being called names ,doubt it. so why when he is angry is it ok to do to others.I have often explained to my children if they don't like being treated a certain way then don't treat others that way.Think how it feels.
