Peace To You! My son is 14 yrs of age, He's not a bad person, I LOVE HIM WITH "ALL" MY HEART, He's my first born child but! >>his "ATTITUDE" is not good the past 4yrs.. He doesn't like to be corrected or when I discipline him, he turns into a emotional wreck!!!! Even a few of his teachers told me recently, they don't see him as a bad person/student but they too notice his attitude problem and I don't want to jack him up or turn into a dyfs basket case. I've showered him with lots of love from day one when he was first forming in my belly and even more after he was birthed.. He was so adorable, I couldn't help but to spoil him as well as my 8yr old daughter yet I knew when to draw the line of coarse but I don't know what in hells world happened here to my son!! MY GOD, HELP!!!!! I love him so much and am holding on to the fact that he's my son and I have to do as the bible tells me! To raise him up/train him in the way that he should go PROVERBS Chapter 22 verse 6 and PROVERBS Chapter 23 verses 13-14 so, what encouraging advice do you have for me? I await your response*God bless/peace.

Your son is at the age that he's changing, and he's noticing himself and others more.He might be rude for many reasons, and not yet able to talk about it. Most boys wnat to know and feel like they are strong, fast, popular, cool.. etc. at this age. It might be best to encourage a man to man talk between husband and son at this point. Somtimes, mom are just different to talk to about this type of stuff :)

Just encourage him to be trustful of you and respect him as you would an adult, not a child .

This is also a time where he might start to be interested in girls and might not be able to figure them out enough yet, maybe he's shy... etc.. could be many things. Teach your son to treat girls/woman well by telling him how to treat woman,how to talk to woman and how to find things to talk to woman about.

Again, maybe it's a father-son thing that needs to be addressed

Be well,
God bless

Thanks Ladies for your concern/reply, God bless you both, I just noticed your replies. "FIRST" Andrea, Yes! I have tried everything you stated and more concerning your reply to my post but I justly wanted to see what other type of help/feedback I'd get because though I'm a minister/teacher of Gods holy word, I'm still not perfect or a perfect parent, there's no such thing! that's why God created more than one person in this world because he knew that one person would need help or couldn't survive alone, amen?! but believe me Andrea, I'm on it like a hornet concerning discipline so but also, if you don't have a teen aged child/children >>you might not understand yet how teenagers can be/get! It's much easier to discipline when you have toddlers! I mean check it out sis, even if there was a such thing as the best parent(s) in this world, >>teenagers can still get a little challenging, it's apart of them going through puberty but most of all, >>I put it all in "GODS HANDS" and things are getting better since I had a long inspiring/educational talk with him so, in reply to your comment about it maybe being "TOO LATE" to bring my son into proper/respective order, >> with my faith/prayers mixed with action and Gods love >>it's "NEVER TOO LATE" for our help as a family, "PROOF" >>MARK chapter 9 verses 14 thru 23*Never tell somebody it is or it might be too late for change Andrea but "ENCOURAGE" that person/people with God all things are possible to them who "BELIEVE! amen and God bless you and your loved ones, :)THANKS AGAIN. "SECOND" Rebecca, Thank you sis! your words were encouraging to me, I have done just that and it's working so may God bless you and your loved ones as well! Your input is welcome anytime you feel led through the Holy Spirit to give me advice or a response to minister to me, amen.

have you tried discussing it with him? explaining what about his behaviour concerns you and find out why he is behaving like that ... if you can find out WHY he is behaving like that, you can probably find solutions TOGETHER that will work for both you and your son.

You sound as if you are a christian. 1st you need to be consistent when you discipline. Stick to your guns. If you don't do something now to change his attitue it might be too late. Try grounding to get his attention about his attitude. If he is sensitive a stern lecture might do the trick. What forms of discipline have you tried.?
