i guess it can't "hurt' to push him to be a part of some things. He actually did the YMCA baseball this year. And even though he had never played he was the best player on the team. And that's the coaches words.
He enjoyed it to a certain point, but like i said, he's just not competitive.
And there a difference between playing a sport or something during free time, and then being put into leagues and made to play. kinda like who are the beauty pagents for? The little girls or their moms?
I guess i lean more to "make him try it, but if he says "i dont' want to do it-- that's his choice. As long as his grades are good, great behavior at school, and he's not locking himself in his room with death music, I guess i should let him be him?
When this little boy was about 6 monthes old, i knelt at his crib one night as he slept crying my eyes out. I told God i was so scared that i would not be a good mother, and i said God you are the best Father, into your hands i place his life. Please lead him well, and keep him safe.
And i've always remembered that prayer, and seem to be reminded of it at certain times. Like God saying he's my child remember? Relax and let me lead.
My husband says i worry to much, and that i shouldn't care what he wants we're the parents, but i think that's the attitude that ends up in rebellious teen years. I'm trying to keep an open and loving relationship with my son....... so even though I can no longer kiss him in public
or even walk with my arm around him at school....... LOL he and i are still very close at home.
That is what is important to me. And i don't want him to think i don't listen to him.
K, i'll hush. Just a new thing for me, and so i thought i would stick it out in the family thread to see if anyone else had thoughts on it.
Thanks for responding guys.
