My 15 year old shows the world respect with "Yes ma'am"... "Please"..." Thank you"....and everyone compliments on his well mannered behavior. I feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when others mention his name and what a handsome - respectable young man he is! But when he's with me, it's a completely different story! He talks back, yells, and sometimes calls me by my first name instead of "mom". He hasn't broke curfew YET but I look for that day to come. He's an honor roll student and plays on the baseball team, so I do believe he's not into anything that he shouldn't be....it's just ME!! I had a devastating divorce 4 years ago and I know that he has alot of anger and rejection issues (for another time) but no matter what I try to do or say...he lashes out at me with rude, angered, crude comments! It's hurtful and often leaves me to tears! I know he only has a few more years at home then he's off into the world.....I hope to get his anger under control and compassion for me back before he ventures off. ~Torn Mama
