I visited a support group meeting at a church. They were friendly and invited me back knowing that I do not follow their all of their beliefs. The question was asked do more of boys fall into the difficult child category than girls? Statistics show they do, but why? I have wonder about this myself, the girls in my family do much better that the boys. I discussed this with a family member, role models? Definitely in my son's case, but my daughter had the same father and she turned her life around. But she was always more disciplined than my son. Boys will be boys attitude?? I think we have more of a tendency to help the girls stay off the streets (fear of rape etc) also girls mature faster than boys AND if pregnant the females can get welfare etc. 37 yo girlie (son's) is on disability and that is how she was getting all of the pain pills. She certainly didn't appear to be disabled the one time I met her lol!!! The group was a huge follower of the Allison Bottke 'Boundaries' series. I guess she had an online support group. Her book was started when her son was on the most wanted list. He was just released from prison and he has now found God, and after his release he has moved in with his mother. A. Bottke asked on her Website if her followers thought she was enabling. I do!! Once he was released and proven himself it's a different story! Maybe I'm being a little hard on her, but I don't think she is following the advice she gives in her books. I would never bother to post my opinion on her site, but I think they are!!!!
