Ask yourself the following questions:

1]Have I shown favoritism among them?

2]Did I have an atmosphere in my home where love and the importance of family unity practice and taught

3]Have I allowed all three of my kids to express what they dislike with about each other as well as what they did or could like.

4]Do you all have family quality time of eating together, talking about how your day went, game night, movie night?

5]As I am a Christian I must ask do you express the love of God and prayer in your home?

6]Do you love yourself and your family?

I pray that the love of God, the Peace of God, the Forgiveness of God, the Instruction of God, Books, Friends, Support from Family, Communication among you and the kids fill your life, your kids life and your home. I pray that the help and guidance you need find you and that your family grow toghther in Love and Unity.

Hello my intentions is not to dis-credit you in anyway. I reccommend you and your children go for councelling and the bad situation you had to get out of discuss with the councellor as well. Before a game or unity can come the root of the problems must be address. I give a hand clap and support to all single mothers, like yourself, who has decided to raise their kids and be there for them because alot of others don't especially when there are trying times. Stay encourage, seek councell and watch the change come because it well!

As a single mom of three, I am learning that the behaviour of our children does reflect how we feel about ourselves, as well as how they are feeling and may not even know or understand why. That is not negative towards you at all! I am struggling to know how to be everything to everyone in my life and it is not working...because we are not supposed to. Counselling is a way for your kids to understand why they are behaving the way they are, and to reinforce what you are trying to teach them - a support system for YOU and the kids! My children do not respect one another anymore either, it is hard to see, even harder to know what to do. Best of luck!
