Need Advice for 13 yr old boy
I am a single parent of a 13 yr old boy that I feel the way I raised him is why he makes the decisions he makes now. The reason I feel like this is because most of his life he was spoiled and I never raised him with morals and principals since I was too busy babying him. Now in order to get him to help with any chores he gives me a major attitude and talks back to me with disrespect. He has a therapist he goes to but aside from that, I know I need to do my part to fix this. I am also very worried that it is too late to right the wrongs. Aside from laziness he thirsts to use the computer. If allowed he would stay online for 14 hrs. I have him on time limits but if I turn my back he would sneak on if I don't remove the mouse or keyboard. He also sneaks around my room when I am not around and he has never been off limits to my things so he could very easily just ask. Another problem is he seems unable to make friends. He doesn't go out to play and even when my friends bring children over he does not know how to socialize. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I love my son dearly and want him to grow up into the successful man I know he can be.
