My growing 13 years old son, a 44 years old father, online computer games, my love to him, his silence, my frustration and my weaknesses......................
Sometimes i really wish i was Dr James Dobson, well equipped with the knowledge with everything and anything about focus on the family, especially dealing with my 13 years old boy, please dont get me wrong, my wonderful boy is not at all bad but sometimes he just gets to my nerves and his attitude swing and what not.
At times i really feel frustrated that i have to contain my own temperament and my moods just to make sure that i can talk to him in the friendliest way possible and most of the time his nonchalant attitude in respond to my advice and my lesson. could this be he is entering the era of rebellion?
Generally speaking, the online games are the culprit. I get worried when as if my son's life is only revolved around the online games, i tried as much as not to deprive him of the so called "the right" of a teen to onlines games, i gave him so many times to him when he said," papa, please give me another half an hour" " papa, i promised my friends already that i would go on line to play with them" even it is school day.
He really wrecks my nerves, when he is not online, he seems lost and everything and anything i say is just like "gone with the winds" even as we go out shopping, he would show his disdain when we decline his request of going back early all in the name of online games.
I love my children so much but i dont want to grow up without "life" except online,PC, Facebook and more onlines. I know besides all this, i still have to discipline him with LOVE, it is just that at times i do not know how to associate Love and Discipline at the same time.
Care to share? For i want my sons to grow up loving me then loathing me.
