At some point, you'll begin to calm down, and maybe even start to feel sorry for what you have done. DON'T. It's in his best interest to lay down the law. My father was rough on me. I was a punk growing up. I tried to see just how far I could push people. He knew just how hard to push back. I never made him break. I finally quit trying. After being "busted" by him a few times, I begain to wise up.
My son, and his cousin are the same age. They went through a "phase" where they tried to do anything they weren't supposed to do. I put my foot down on my son. He wasn't going to be a criminal. His cousin didn't have that luxury. His father took off when Bobby was about 6 years old. His mother was a drug addict. He never knew what it was to be made to "grow up". He's in jail now. He got busted yesterday for trying to sell a generator he stole from his employer. He tried to sell it to me. His boss called me to find out if I knew where it was. I had to tell him. That's the right thing to do....For the owner of the generator AND the THIEF of the generator.
You have to pay the price for some things.......That's what makes you remember them. John
