iam a working mom in uae, my son is in grade 10 has a sis in grade 6.
i come home in d evening exhausted , and busy with my daughter for her gymastics classes, my quality time wid my son is less.
he is engaged moerein masturbation (i noticed) and when asked to study takes lot of time in washrooms, no time conscious, i haveto wake him up @6am for school everyday,school bus comes @6.25am though he goes to bed @ 10pm. shows no interest in studies. no ambition in life , some times says wants to be a doctor.no regular schedule for studies as iam not there to watch.spends lot of time in internet games. started lying too.advise me to stream line him though i continue to work else iam planning to quit and come to chennai for this academic year itself.
we tried with regular time tables, rewards,punishments,locking laptops,internet,tvnothing seems to work.
thanks and regards
Hi friend....Nothing more valuable than spending quality time with our children..
teenage comes with its own baggage of problems. physical changes, identity crisis, sexual issues, technology, peer pressure and what not.
you cannot punish/threaten a teenager into studying. masturbation is just one of the ways in which a teenager explores his body and sexuality.
