I can understand why I have never gotten repect from my 21 year old son.
I worked 2 jobs to give him what he needed and wanted.
I guess some kids just don't like their parents, can't change it no matter how hard you try

All too often it takes a while for kids to grow up and realize just what has been given to them by their parents. For all too many, it is never enough. One thing is for certain though, you can't change someone else. He will think/believe as he wants, until something he experiences in life, causes him to change. It is all part of the maturation process. Unfortunatley, some never reach it.

I have seen kids say some pretty mean and rude things to their parents. I told one kid if he ever said to me what he said to his dad...I would of grabbed him by his ear and thrown him out of the game. ( his dad called a third strike on him)..and this kid is 17 and over 6 foot.
When my sons have been rude to me.....I tell them to watch their mouth.. Im still their mom and it doesnt fly around here. I will later tell them when they say thinhs that are rude or mean that it hurts me.....They get the picture then.

It took my older one 23 years to realize that mom probably was right all along.

we all grow into that ohhh so mom was right after all. With respect and children, you have to give it. Now giving them their car when they turn 16 is not giving the respect. its giving them reason to walk all over you.

my niece was a rotten kid.. hateful as hell to her mother.. she said and did things to her mom that were totally unforgivable.. if she had been my kid, she would have gotten her mouth mashed..
now that her mom is dead ( she died 1 month after my niece turned 18).. she has alot of regrets and memories that she will have to live with for the rest of her life..

and on the other hand.. my nephew ( Laz's son)... is one of the most compassionate, sweetest kids I have ever been around.. he loves his Papa B to death and still hugs and kisses him.. and tells him repeatedly how much he loves him.. even at the age of 18, when he goes to visit my folks, he is Papa B's shadow.. he was a sweet kid in school too... came home from a school dance one night in tears because some of the other boys were picking on one of the "unpopular" girls that night.. when he got older, he would put a stop to anyone he saw picking on another kid.. how ai love that boy.. and I am so proud of him

I don't have any problems from my 3 adult children.My eldest child,
and eldest son is a sweetheart,infact tomarrow is his 37th birthday( October 4th,1970).
My second eldest child and youngest son, lives in Indiana,with his lady.He is a little Bull headed,but he is a good boy.He is 33.
Then there is my little girl,age 32.Married and very happy.She is my Barbie Doll.The only thing, that bothers me,about my kids,
is they fuss, when ever i get the slightest ache or pain,and are seriously over protective,to the point that they are not too awful happy,about Mama moving back
home to Louisiana.I want to marry a good Country Cajun.

When I opened my mouth heard my mother I was mortified.............NOW I love it when I hear my daughter talking and she sounds like me! Especially to her own kids.

A lot of us are still very hormonal and emotional and can't truly appreciate what our parents have done for us until we are in the same situation. You can't really blame us for it.

My daughter is 22 and has never left home...now she is the mother of an incredible 6 month old son. I'm loving it! She has grown up in so many ways since he was born.... don't lose faith and hope in the young ones..... "real" life happens to them, as it did us....

yes but if not known at the age of 21 then its never gonna happen.
i think you should look a little closer to home. i dont mean this in a bad way. your kids are a mirror image of you and their surroundings. you should ask yourself are you strongly opinionated? are you the first to say how you feel? are you known the make rash decisions?.....the list goes on. i feel thats what makes your kids what they are

You cannot blame hormones for not appreciating what your parents have done for you. I'm 19 years old and from the time I was very young I hated taking money from my grandfather, let alone my parents. They were not rich but if I needed something I had it. I was my parents' everything. You know you appreciate what they have done for you whether you can acknowledge it or not. When you get older, and have children you will realize the committments and sacrifices they made for you. I have always helped my father on the farm to work off my debts to him and I got scholarships for school. I got a lot of scholarships but he still has to help me with payments because I am a full time student. I hate asking him for money because he has done so much for me already and worked his @$$ off for everything he has. I have always had this realization despite the fact I was very young and I told my mother that I was so happy and blessed for everything they had done for me the day before she unexpectedly passed away. It is one of the most important things I think I could have ever told her and I am happy that she got to hear it from me. Just because you are young doesn't mean you can't appreciate your parents. You want to rebel and become your own person, everyone does, it's natural. Just when it comes down to it remember who gave you the opportunities you have and show them how much they mean to you. That is the biggest way you can show them you appreciate them, by doing this and not squandering the opportunities they gave you.
