I am a mother of a 13 year old boy and a 16mth old girl. Quite an age difference I know but sometimes thats how it works out. Anyway I digress, my son has been getting a huge attitude about everything lately. He complains his life is terrible and he has to many rules to follow. Latley he has been complaining about school and his grades are staring to drop. He's always been a good student. and he's not a bad student now, im just afraid he will be headed that direction. Its strange having a teen now, I know I was one once but I remember playing with barbies and riding my bike, all he wants to do is be on the computer, or play video games etc. This world sure is changing. I dont remember behaving as he is , but my mom says Im getting everything I deserve becasue I was just like he is. I have him in counseling for anger management issues/depression-but sometimes I think he gets that from me because I loose my temper with him so easily now. I thought I had patience until he became 13 going on 30. For instance tonight he was having problems with his math homework and I tried to help him, I dont remember alot of algebra from school, but I tried and when I asked him questions he was like"I dont know, I guess" and i was like your in the class do you have any idea how to do this? He said he didnt care about school and that he should have just lied and said he didnt have HW. So I lost my temper yelled told him to finish the HW, take a shower and go to bed. I must have been pretty scarry because he actually did it, but I feel so ashamed and guilty because I responded like that I email his teachers weekly to get updates so I am involved. I decided tonight to get a tutor from high school even though he said absolutely not he didnt want a tutor, but its either that or summer school. I guess im just venting here hoping that there is a magic cure to bring back my sweet baby boy.
