Im kathy a 35yr old newly single mom with 5 boys ages 15,13,6,4,2. My fiance of 7 yrs robert passed away unexpectidly may 1st of this yr. So along with my life in pieces i have a 15 yr old boy named chris. Who on most days seems determand to make my life a living hell!!! Chris is very outspoken on everything and anything.now dont get me wrong he is a awsome kid to anyone that isnt me or his brothers.It bothers me to say his behavier embarrasses me but it really does.he calls me every name you can think of and so on. His dad was like this also( robert was chris' stepdad)im afraid he will end up just like his biological,full of hate,rage,and misguided beliefs. Me and Robert tried hard to help chris.im also embarressed to say that Robert tried harder than i did.I dont know how to deal with him so i didnt. I also take full responsiblity as his mom for how he is. Now that Robert is gone he has asked who is going to be the father figure in there life he even asked about his dad. There has been no contact with his dad and they are better for it. Chris is a good boy to. He has a girlfriend who he is sweet to and he is completly respectful at her house or any house as long as its not ours.:) he is down to only 2 more yrs in school. He jokes around and loves checking himself out in the mirror. Id peg him as a normal teenage boy. Until he gets mad then its all bad. I love him and want to help him.its just harder becouse i dont even know how to fix myself at this moment. I feel like im failing him as a mom.
