If you have a real stubborn son? Disobedient, disrespectful, prodigal, irresponsible and has practically all the negative attributes to a person?

I remember this episode of Desperate Housewives wherein Bree leaves Andrew (her hopeless son) in the middle of nowhere. She gave him some money and told him to go look for a job. That's exactly what I would do if I had a son like that. Unconditional love is something almost Godly that it would be almost impossible for us humans to have it. Unconditional love is supposed to be love fore somebody no matter what. But as a human being, my patience has a threshold that can be broken.

Kick him out of your life if he's already old enough to live his own. He has no reason at all to be pestering you throughout your life. It's difficult to be a mother and yet if the child is already and he still gives burden to the mother, better let him go.

Leave him if he doesn't like to leave you. You will die with this kind of child. Children nowadays are so stubborn even to their old mother. And there are really so many irresponsible people now.

Arsenia you seem to have put words into my mouth. If this is your problem, it's exactly the same as mine. This problem seems to have exhausted me physically, mentally and financially but I have learned to take one day at a time, with prayers. I know that God is listening and I never lose hope that my son will wake up one day.

My friend across the street had a son like that, (this was at my old house, no here!) and she shipped him home to Trinidad where his grandmother made him work like a bugger!! He sure shaped up after he realized how good he had it in Canada. As for this stubborn son, he kindof sounds like my stubborn father! LOL

It's really difficult to have such kind of a child. I might suffer from heart attack and die early. It's good I have just 2 daughters although the other is retarded. I think I prefer this better than to have a stubborn son.

Whoa!!! Then I might have to think twice... is he really my son or somebody switched babies in the hospital when my son was born? hehehe... I'm so thankful that all my children (4 boys) were raised up to be courteous and loving, to think that my husband is the one left at home to take care of them while i go to the office. I think, if I have that kind of son as the one you have mentioned, maybe, i can also tolerate his traits. Why? because i believe that our children imitate us parents in everything we do...he didn't grow up to be stubborn, disobedient...etc... if I or my husband do not have the same traits. It is us parents who mold our children as they grow up. If as a child he has shown bad behaviours, he should have been reprimanded long ago so that there is still a chance to straighten his character. If left as is... we'll be sorry for sure.

hmmm, you'd have to ask my mom that. It sounds like my brother. I can't have a relatinship with my brother. He is very difficult, but he is my moms son and even though she finds him very difficult and stressful, she doesn't want to lose touch with him. She is not very happy and he has affected her health negatively. I hope your son isn't as bad as my brother is. My mom tries to have minor dealings with him, and tries to only correspond on email, not on the phone or in person because otherwise he will yell at her for something he imagines she's doing.
