  • My 13 is so disrespectful

    My 13 year old son is so disrespectful to women, especially me, and I’m not sure how to discipline him. He calls me a b**** all the time. He doesn’t like to be told what to do and I’m lost at how to discipline him. I’m a single mom and he won’t do any chores, I’ve taken his Xbox away for a day or two but that isn’t working. Can anybody give me advice? Please I’m desperate.

    We are glad you reached out to us for help. It is very stressful to be continually ignored and disrespected. It is very challenging to find the discipline line to get basic compliance and consider manners even when everyone is being agreeable. Sometimes it is worthwhile to consider some other factors going on in your son’s life that could be affecting his behaviors.

    We would like to talk with you more so we can go over the details to see if this might be just hormones with puberty or perhaps a developing issue with drugs or problems socially with his friend group. We would also like to discuss other issues that could be stressful for him and causing him to lash out-such as problems at school or with an adult that you might not be aware of.

    You can reach out to us for a chat through our website or call us on our crisis hotline at (800) RUNAWAY. Both are available 24/7 and are completely confidential. Once we get some more details, we will help you develop a plan to deal with your son’s issue. We will also help you access resources available in your community to support you and work with your son if needed.

    We hope to hear from you soon. Good luck.
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
