Ann has great points. Good post. My input is simply: He is a boy!! I
have raised all boys. They hit 10, and you are no longer a person,
female, or woman. You are simply a mom, whose whole purpose in life
is to take care of his needs without the other guys knowing you have
a mom. Two of my boys were getting bored in a craft store and
decided to hold hands, sing and skip down the aisles. Why? Because
that is what boys do! Your reaction and hand wringing is what they
are waiting for, so don’t sweat the small stuff. The more you fuss
over every word they say, they have won the battle. Pick your
battles, as this war will continue for many more years.
This is what guys do. Sneaking the cat in the microwave, playing
with matches, inventing bigger speakers, raw egg fight, calling each
other names. It means nothing, just a boy growing up. I am surprised
your pastor was acting like a jerk, as I am sure he did the exact
same stuff as a kid. So don’t freak out, and get used to the boy
answer: “I dunno.” Anna
