I have problem with my son. He is 12 years old, and he is behaving badly. He is swearing a lot. He is unsatisfied all the time. He always wants something. We always had money and he always had all he wants and needs. But he is not showing respect anymore. He is bad in school and I have complaints from the teachers. What can I do?

Well I have to tell you that you are guilty for this. You have coddled him too much. Buying him everything is not the best thing to raise the child. He must learn the value of things and to get them every time he screams. He is too old to start from the beginning. You must be careful with him now. Maybe the best way to handle this problem is to get some professional advisor. He will be able to monitor your relationship weekly and to give you proper advices.

Giving everything to our little ones, one might think we are doing the right thing or we want them to have things that we didn't as children. But they grow up and demand for more and more and more when things are given to them all the time. And when there is times those things are not given to them then they begin to misbehavior or disrespect. You must remember who is the adult and who is the child. If the child begins to misbehave or disrespect then there should be some consequences. Either things could be taken away or he must behave, respect or earn what he wants. Your son is 12 and he should be able to understand what is right and what is wrong. Eventhough you gave him the world you must make him understand that you are the boss, you are the parent/adult. But don't only focus on the negative acknowledge his good behavior. Or maybe he is seek for your attention. You should look at the relationship that you and your son have. Maybe he sees that there is no relationship other than material between you both. Speak to him and listen to what he really needs to say.

The key to parenting doesn’t lie with your child’s relationship with schoolteachers, youth leaders or coaches. The key lies within the parent…in the relationship between parent and son or daughter. It’s through your eyes, your behavior, your words and your thoughts that your child learns about her self-esteem, her worth in God’s eyes and how to relate to others.

Commitment, communication and teamwork are crucial when parenting troubled teens. If you are sure that your decision is the right one for your teen, stand firm on it. Children learn to be manipulative at an early age. Teens know that most of the time, if they argue with you and bug you long enough, you'll get tired or annoyed and give in. Avoid getting angry and getting sucked into arguments.
