|My 16 Year old son Gio|
As the mother of a 16 year old son, I struggle with him daily. Let me preface this by saying, overall he's a good kid. I'm not saying that because he's my son, but I say this knowing all of the things kids could be doing and knowing what I was doing at his age.....well, like I said...he's a good kid! But I find him to be disrespectful, and is it me or are teens just more disrespectful to their parents now-a-days? Are they ungrateful? Or is this a reflection of our parenting? Should I have deprived him more? Maybe I gave him to much? I don't know.
Maybe this is something that is not uncommon but I'm just experiencing it myself now that I have a teenager. Its just that this is not something that I would have gotten away with. Or maybe I'm just old school, but this sh*t is not tolerated in latino households! Hopefully its just a phase and I raise a respectful young man. In the meantime, I will throw my chancleta or give him a cokotaso when he gets out of line!

Well, until next time Mi Gente!
