OK you are all set to receive PARENTING emails! 🙂 YAY!! You are going to start by receiving my first email and then you will get the rest from there. You may have already seen the first one, so ignore it if you have (it is just my ‘who I am’ email).

The rest will be new for you. 🙂



Hi there!

I’m Becky, a former elementary school teacher turned certified child development therapist and blogger. I work at home with my husband and together we are raising (and partially homeschooling) our four children in the Carolinas. I love diet coke, ice cream, and spending time with my family.

  1. What do you believe would be the best possiable solution with having twin boys almost 13 years of age going threw puberty with the most awful disrespectful defiant behavior that in return throws the mother into distress and panic attacks trigger. I feel helpless hopeless useless as a mother who honestly and truly feel disconnected with my kids any more and feel as if they hate my guts. Disconnected uninterested in any family activities because they all end up in hostel inviroment with both of them fighting and hitting each other. I feel like a horrible mother mentally and physically worn out. Just want to feel close and connected with all of my kids. If there are any suggestions I am open to try any thing that can change my boys back to those sweet babies I once knew with out anger and hostility and to gain a close well functioned family.

    1. Hi Melissa,

      Did you get the solution?? I wonder what can be a possible solution for the awkward situation. Disrespectful behavior of the boys and fighting and hitting each other. I’m a mother of 4 children 2 boys o age 10 & 8 and 2 girls of 7 & 5. I have almost the same experience with my boys.
      any help will be of great value 🙂
