A neighbor of mine came to me crying! His erring son got mad over her father's scolding and engaged his father in a heated argument. Ending, he went out of the house and has not return for 2 days and they know not his whereabouts. It's the mother who is now suffering and crying all day. I don't know how to console her as I've never encountered such thing in my life as a parent. I believe I have been blessed to have a good son who treats me and his Dad with love and respect even if sometimes he would also gets reprimanded as he is not perfect after all. But as whole I believe we have raised him well. How about you?

i'm very proud of my two sons. they are grown w/children og their own & both are such good dads. it was rough at times because i was a single parent but we made it. they wers repiemanded many times, grounded, swatted on the butte if i thought they needed it.your friend's son knows hih mom is worried about him. he could at least contact her even if he's mad at his dad& put her worry aside.

Yes reprimanding, spanking and other disciplinary action should always be used when needed because that is part of correction and reproof. And you've made it despite being a single parent! Congratulations!

Hi friend. Glad to know that your son treats you and your husband with respect. As for me, since my kids are still young, I see to it that I teach and guide them with their manners. I am a little bit disciplinarian, and if they have done something wrong or bad, I see to it that I tell them what is wrong with that. I'm glad that my kids are good listeners and practicing what I and my husband has been teaching them. I just hope that when they get older, they will never change and in the future when they have families of their own, they teach their kids too to show respect to them and to other people. Keep posting. HUGZ!

Hello friend! Yes,discipline starts when they are still young, you are in the right tract! And I assure you they will never lose tract because when you train them young they will not depart from the good path they've been used to. Congrats for having raised them well!

As much as possible we do take all the tips and advise by many including each members advice here regarding how to supervise children. I do believe that raising them in a nice way will not only them have the benefits in the future, we do have also as parents and will be proud when other people saw the character of our kid's.
