My son is ungrateful……

by Rod Smith

My son (11) is quite ungrateful for all I do for him. I don’t want him to go around being unkind to women and he’s not getting any good lessons from his father who is a miserable woman-hater who I am glad I divorced. What can I do to make him appreciate all I do and honor and respect me. I am a single mother. Please help. 

Taking care of some of your anger might be a good place to start. The tone of your letter hardly suggests you are roaming around life with your arms and voice lifted in praise and thankfulness.

May I remind you the father of your son is the man you once loved enough to marry?

Attitudes are quite contagious. Get yours right and you might see a little shift in the manner in which your son sees life.
