My son just turned 16 yesterday. Before the age of 13 he was in and out of trouble constantly..court..Family Strength programs(in-home counseling) as well as a Psycologist and counseler with all of us outside the home. I had advice from well meaning friends and lovers to have him: "PUT AWAY" "LOCKED UP" "BOOT CAMP" ( which seemed like a good idea but I don't believe in letting someone else handle the problem) With much time and patience..as well as learning better parentling skills..Things are completely turned around..it has been over 3 1/2 yrs that I have not had any REAL problems with my boy..I never loved him less and for all the crap he gave me I let him know daily how much he was loved..even as I was holding him by his shirt against the wall..Do not accept anything less than respect..make your rules..bend do not break..If they don't like things as they are..tell em' ta get the heck out! Tuff love does wonders..

And if they want to go. They'll have to go nekked
cause every they have belongs to me . I bought it and it's mine even the shirt on their back . And don't let the door bang them in the .....
Didn't have a one want to leave so they followed the rules . I guess they got the picture if them walking down the drive way nekked and didn't like it .
Out of six kids I don't think one of them spent a night in jail that I know of . the youngest is 34 now . I feel lucky that they all turned out good.
