My 17 year old son returned last night from a week away w/ my parents at a "wilderness ways" gathering. My parents told me they received many compliments on how helpful and nice my son is. So far today he has tested me to the point of me wanting to kick him out two times! He gets so stuborn (no clue where that comes from). After he gets some guiet time he does a good job of removing his head from his a$$, and says he is sorry. When do they stop pusing the limits? More importantly what can I do to keep from reacting like I'm going to explode? ugh!!!! he is a good kid and does not pull half of the crap I did as a kid, so I am thankful of that. I guess I just need new ideas on parenting this age. Thanks for reading.
