Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

How do you handle an 11 year with a nasty mouth? Help! At my end!

0 answers
My 11 year has started with hurtful words, tone and actions in his speaking to me. I am trying to understand life as an 11 year old boy but I cannot, since I never was one. He words have gotten so biting and hurtful, I've been reduced to tears, any suggestions on how we can cope. I am tired of the yelling matches, the taking things away, or being steamrolled into giving in. Help! If it is bad now what will it be like at 13-19!
