Raising childern is not eaay, and they are all different. Disrespect is learned at an early age, either from a parent or school peers. I won't allow it, and have Zero tolerance for it! Period!
Most everything they have and do is a privlidge, and those can be taken away at anytime. (cell phone, computer, TV, home phone, friends over to play,...way too many to list)... I cant stand children who take advantage of a sick parent either.... that is the worst.
When they say you are sitting on your behind all day...that is a complaint you must have brought up in conversation when they are around...and they know it bothers you....so they atack your weakness. ..to hurt you....abuse starts with words...and may grow into something more...if not addressed.
If it is not dealt with soon then they will carry this right into adulthood and into a marriage. I would suggest family counsling. Those of us who suffer many forms of CP are at a disadvantage when raising children, as we dont have the strength to cope with some of these issues.
It's also important for both parents to be on the same page when dealing with this.
