I know a young man who has trouble admitting his fault.Â When something goes wrongâ€¦ even though the whole family knows heâ€™s to blameâ€¦ he gets red in the face arguing his innocence.
Parents with an angry son need to gently and firmly address his victim attitude.Â If Mom and Dad donâ€™t step in â€¦ this young man will only grow more irate.Â Heâ€™ll blame the world for all his woes.Â Down the road, itâ€™ll hurt his relationships with loved onesâ€¦ and with the Lord.
Have a son like that?Â Take a stand, Mom and Dad.Â Wait for the right moment to bring up the issues you see in your son.Â Be clear.
By dealing with this attitude nowâ€¦ youâ€™re building character into your son.Â One day heâ€™ll be a grown man who walks in humility.
