I am new to this site and Im so happy to have signed up. I was wondering if anyone had boys because my son was born February 7th 2006 and he just turned five. I only have one more child wom is nine and thats my daughter. My son is mamas boy big time but its obious he doesnt have the respect he should. He isnt so much a problem child because he does well with dicsipline and in school but hes VERY persistent and adement about what he wants till he gets it. I am so easy on him because he had so many health problems his whole first year of his life. Hes healthy now and I know if I keep this up I will be dealing with a troubled teenage boy. Im young and not used to a boy so i was wondering if anyone had any advice for me about what first steps I can take to get the respect I know he can give to me... hes such a loving little boy and it hurts to see him cry.... thats another thing, he has a older sister and two other older sisters which are my step daughters, i feel so sad that he gets left out alot. How do I get over the guit (I dont know why) and the attachment of emotions and as a parent to him???
