Hi !!! I'm a single mom of 6 kids. 5 girls ages 6, 10,14,15,&17 & 1 son age 11. He has ADHD & ODD. He can be so trying at times.He doesn't have any male role models in his life besides teachers. Anyone else have the same problem? I feel to blame somehow & wonder if he can grow up right without one. Help....

Wow, five girls in the house! I'm sure that is challenging, too. I don't have any experience with having a son without male role models, but I'd suggest having your son join a local Boy Scout group. There are lots of boys (as well as older boys as role models) and men as leaders. I'd check the scouting site to see where a local troop is near you. Can't remember the site now, though it is listed on this site under 'other links' near the bottom of the left side of the home page.
Also, there's a new book out that's supposed be really good. It's called
Raising Boys Without Men : How Maverick Moms Are Creating the Next Generation of Exceptional Men by Peggy Drexler & Linden Gross

Hope you can find some help.
Take care,
Sharon
