OH 4-5-6!

WHY OH WHY is there so much stuff about raising a boy that nobody tells you when you start!
My God! I wish there was a bloody user guide. . . a manual. . . a book of clues. . . a website. . . an e-mail support group. . . anything!
PLEASE!

    Angel: if you find “the” perfect resource you seek … or even if you just stumble on the secret formula – please remember to share! I don’t have the added burden you do of having to do this dance solo, but I do have the weirdness of having one in grade school and the other in his 30s and having just become a father himself (and thus having made me a grandmother!). Both males. Both generations having their own unique “issues”. Me in the middle! People keep trying to tell me boys are easier. I just stare at them … wearily … for I know they are insane!

    nomad: i wish i could find ONE thing that works! each time i think we may be making progress- he decides to take another detour!

    melany: thanx, but i own (and have read) so many “textbooks” on raising boys and dealing with adders… i could probably teach a class myself! it just doesn’t work on damien! sheesh…

    LOL Try the book “raising boys”? It must be really tough to raise a boy by yourself

    We have all felt that way – I know I have.

    Are you having a tough time? Parenting is such a hit and miss affair a lot of the time but once you hit on the right formula, you’re pretty set up for the rest of the ride.
