They say this is part and parcel being a father, they say this is how it should be or must be for a 14 years old boy"acting nonchalantly,rebelliously and acting cool"
May be they say he is just like me,"like father,like son" hard headed and obstinate but this is exactly i find it hard at times to deal with the syndrome of "like father like son."
We are on "cold-zone" for the pass three days and because "like father like son" he thinks okay, "if you are not talking, neither am i" so it was silent lunch yesterday,there was no chatting like we used to....................
I feel that i should make the my stance clear, i reckon he should see his problems with umpteen times of reminders and i believe he should lose his privileges when certain instructions were not followed....................................that's what i believe as father but can he see like what i see ?
Suddenly, out of sudden i feel like i am a lousy dad, it has always been my motto of " settle all problems before the sun goes down" and i am not practicing what i preach..........
Should i give in again out of love or should i stick to my gun till he gets the message?
