    That's not easy, either.

    Isn't there some other course, something besides teaching a child that he/she is worthless or teaching them that there are no consequences for their actions?

    Dont know all the details but at first glance...but probably not the best means of motivation the parents could have offered. Not sure how/why people believe that dominance and control is or has ever worked with teenagers. I also doubt whatever parent/child conflicts are currently occurring that they happened over the last few months.

    There was a traumatic family event that occurred not long before the problems started - Mom's brother was killed and he was very close to the family. While you're usually right about a long-term problem flaring up when kids get into their teens I don't think that's the case this time.

    That could definitely explain it. Kids usually do a great job at being kids (translation, headstrong, rebellious, hormone driven, etc-or as in this case, perhaps an extreme response to an emotional incident). Sometimes parents do a less than stellar job of parenting.

    I had 3 A students including one that was fluent in Russian by her sophomore year and one fluent in Spanish and Japanese. My third child...not so much. Now...granted he was a better student up til the 10th grade than I was...but he still decided he wanted to rebel a little, made some bad choices, and didnt want to immediately bounce back. So...we did all we could do after identifying what we really wanted (with the understanding that all we can control is our own choices). We worked to maintain a powerful and positive loving relationship with our son. His world...his choices...his consequences. He managed to choose to pull his head out, graduate ahead of his peers, is a career NCO, and is a great husband and father. Covered in tats, smokes, drinks, and I couldnt be be more proud of him as my son.

    His posts tell us a lot about how he treats his family.

    No, they are grown, their mother gave them everything and now she has no retirement to look forward to as far as her savings go. She pretty much let them get away with murder when they were young now they treat her like ****, pretty much like most liberal parented kids act.

    Where does the thread topic say they are worthless, that is your interpretation, but that is not the true message
