I am a single mom who works full time and raising 3 boys, the ages of 13, 11 and 8. Recently I am having so much trouble with my oldeset son (13 yr old); he does not listen to a word I say, if I tell him to be home by 7pm he comes home at 10pm. He has been suspended from school at least 4 times just this year alone, and now I find out he's been skipping school as well, he'll act like he's catching the bus for school, waits until I leave for work then goes back home, and just hangs out all day. I am just about ready to give up, but then I come to my senses and say to myself; how can I possibly give up on my child, I would never be able to live with myself. Are there any moms out there who can give me any advice, who might have gone through a simular experience to what I'm going through? Please Help!!!!!
