    What do you do when a 16 year old refuses to take care of his responsibilities? Talking to him doesn't work. Being his friend is a récipe for disaster.

    What would you suggest?

    no i don't.

    you sit down with him, try and figure out what the problem is and you don't stop until you do mason.

    When you have kids, try that please.

    I can assure you it will not make a bit of difference.

    Depends on the infraction. Luckily they seldom do anything really naughty these days.

    how old are your children if i may ask?
    Depends upon the kid. Again, the parents generally know when the routine is losing it's effectiveness.

    You can still have kids at 50. My father was 50 when I was born.

    Yup, a lot of non-parents swear by your method.

    firm parenting at an early age helps when the children are older.

    the means this father is using in trying to correct his son's behavior is bad given the age of his son. i think the kid is going to resent it as an adult and just think what he might do as a father himself.
