My 14 year old son is so defiant and rebellious. No matter how much he is punished or I take away his privileges, he always seems to do the same things over and over again. I am a single mother of 6 children and it gets so frustrating at times. I don't want to give upon my son, but that's the way that I feel sometimes. I refuse to give my son to the streets, though. Somedays he is so cool, then others it's his way or nothing. I have asked male family members to talk to him and spend time with him, but everybody has their own lives, so I am raising him all by myself. I have even called the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program and was told that they were only accepting boys up to ages 11, because they don't have enough mentors for boys my son's age. I don't know what to do anymore. I get so frustrated and stressed, which isn't good at all. Will someone please give me some good advice? I love my son dearly and don't want him going down the wrong path. Thanks!!
