I am a single mother of 16 yr. old twin boys! I raised my boys alone since they were 1 yr. old and I found myself giving in at all times as they were growing up, because if I didn't...I would of been on their backs 24\7. Now that they're teenagers...they seem to be running the house. I realize the teen years are difficult but when they're mad at me, they call me down to the lowest.(bitch, slut, whore etc.) I don't have a positive male role model in their lives..to teach them how to be young men. I'm on my own. I haven't even had a boyfriend since their Dad..which was 15 yrs. ago! I know it's too late to put them over my knee, but when one of them is angry or stressed..he breaks things. (holes in doors,broken pictures etc.) I'm afraid of my sons. (that is very hard for me to admit) We're in the courts over truancy. All they want to do is sit around day in day out and play video games. It's easy for others to say,"take the x-boxes away from them" Honestly..if I do that...all hell will break loose! HELP! I used to think if my teens hated me then that meant I was doing my job. Now, I'm not so sure!
