Hey you moms out there!.....this is a WONDERFUL site to all of us moms ~ but, as the cirlce of life goes, my sons are now 15 and 17 and I need support! I was a stay at home mom for 10 years and thought that the way my boys were raised as youngsters would make the teen years much smoother. While the boys are respectful young menchildren and honor students, they treat me horribly. 16 months ago their dad decided to leave the marriage. Being a single mom in a big house and yard, I need the boys' help now more than ever. They are rude and disrespectful to me when I hand out the chore list. My heart breaks that they aren't filled with compassion and want to step forward to help take care of their mom. I know that I have been the solid, strong mom in the past, taking care of everything and organizing the daily plans ~ but now, I just can't do it anymore. This new life has taken them off guard. I am so disappointed with a broken heart. Any suggestions?
