Not Working

As my son gets older and enters his preteen years he’s becoming more defiant and angrier. I often find myself confused about how to proceed and angered at the displays of disrespect and destructive behavior. Lord Buddha have plenty of advice about one’s duty to one’s parents but not so much (that I’ve been able to find) about how to deal with misbehaving and disrespectful children.

How do you walk the line between laissez faire patenting and inculcating respect? How do you meet your child’s irrational anger without becoming angry yourself?


  1. Hi, found an article which might be relevant and helpful!

    Hope it benefits you in dealing with your son.:)

    • Thanks for that! It’s much appreciated. Every good blessing to you!
