Dear PC,
Our 12-year-old boy twins seem to have their own agenda. Homework is not getting done and too much time is spent online gaming and who knows what all else. I keep telling them they most likely will remain in middle school for like if homework is not done and handed in. Plus, they keep collecting stray animals and allow them to live in their rooms. One has what appears to be a rather old 3-legged pot belly pig which nests in the one twins lower chest of drawers and is creating an enormous stink. The other twin has 3-ferrets he got from three different friends whose parents suggested they get rid of. So, my son took them in. No matter what you do with ferrets, they are a bit wild and have a tendency to bite sometimes. To say the least I stay out of their bedrooms. Their father is a 12-hour a day Hospitalist and rarely sees them. So please what is the remedy for these boy’s dilemma? Mom who is stuck.
Dear Stuck,
First of all, do your boys live alone? There doesn’t seem to be any parents living with them. Where are the home rules? Where are the consequences. Have they been this way all their lives? Have you ever heard the old adage, “Spare the rod and spoil the child.”
You need more rod and less spoiled boys. In other words, mom needs to step up and get involved in their lives and set some rules with real life consequences. Lock away the computers or set some limits. If I were you, I would call animal control and find these critters a home in a zoo or farm. But anyway, you need to be the parent and they need to be the obedient children. You might want to hire a cleaning lady with a strong stomach for one or two days to clean up their rooms. Next you might want to hire a mature older teen boy with muscles to help them with homework and act as mentor and parttime bouncer. Some one with a strong sense of responsibility and maybe a forceful will. You can do it mom. Be a parent and not a door mat. God bless you all and let me know how this turns out.
Pastor Chazz.
