You DO sound like a great Mom. Yes, there have to be very clear rules and consequences and not stray from that.. I am very bad about giving in
!2 and 13 are difficult, not quite adolescent butgrown up in their minds...Katie had alot of HW in middle school, and projects. But it sounds like you are getting things under control-great job!!! Could you come down here and kick our butts a little?!!lol
Katie is in 10th grade, so I feel she must suffer the consequences of not doing her work, just like the working world...of course, I do remind her of obligations, then she is on her own, but she is older than yr boys. I used to squeeze HW out of Kate at that age, and we helped a little with science fair stuff, or presentations.
It sounds as if the boys were acting out b/c it must feel like that (Snipped) abandoned him. But your new man sounds great-I hope he can adopt them and shut out the worthless one.
I don't work out of the home and they think we are sitting around eating chocolate bonbons and watching soaps-I wish. Beinga parent is the most important job you will ever have and the rewards are golden!! Keep up the good work and let us know...I might be taking lessons from you
Hop you have a relatively good day
Please watch the language! Thanks! SE
