My son is very difficult to parent. Since the day he was born he wanted to challenge me. Battle of the wills doesn't even begin to describe what I go through on a day to day basis. Love and Logic (which I love) doesn't seem to give me the right formula. He just gets lazy and says he's too tired and when I tell him I'm going to take something away from him he thinks about it and justifies it as a reasonable consequence. My husband and I are hard workers and it really bothers me that my son is soooooo Lazy. Help me with some solutions, please. Confused

Hi how old is your son, is he a teen? I would just not do things for him...laundry, pack lunch, etc. He'll soon figure out he'll have to do things for himself.

Hope this helps

My son is actually 6. Am I being too hard on him expecting work ethic @ this age?

6 is such a baby if you think about it. It just may be his personality. I have 4 boys and 3 of them are so super independant. Getting their own drinks and doing their own thing. And then I have one that is very dependant. Quite a different boy than his brothers. I try to help him through things. Not exactly doing it for him, but helping him through it...together. That seems to help my son.

My 16 yr old step son is very lazy. We give him chores to do and he does what he feels like doing and that's all, to make matters worse his dad wont do anything about it. Its driving me nuts. Its like he purposely does not do the chores to show me that he doesn't have to do what I tell him to. All he does is sit around and play video games..... Please help me, at least before I go crazy!!!! Serious answers only please...Thank you!
