We love him but sure don’t like him...

Hi Mark,

I’ve quickly reviewed your program and I think it will help.

My youngest (16) boy is not really that far out of control. My older boy (19) is just great.

Both are extremely smart and do great in school. Snag with youngest is mostly on the disrespect side. Which of course leads to lots of communication problems.

We’re kind of at the “we love him but sure don’t like him” stage.

Pretty sure his problems stem from my wife developing serious illness and almost dying when he was only in grade 5.

She’s now stable but some limited functionality.

We need to reverse what’s going on, otherwise I can see me booting him out in the future.

So we will follow your plan and see if it will help,

D.
