I really want to be a good mother .  I want to be understanding and treat him nice.  He just drives me nuts.  He is not a bad kid, just does things that annoy me.  I lost my temper and told him to get out.  Of course, I didn't mean it, and I don't want him to leave.  I really want to get along with him.  I know there is a better way but I seem to lack patience with it.  I do remember how it was to be a teen and parents can be lame.  I am one of those lame parents.  It really sucks.  I brought this kid into the world and I love him so much and then I say something so stupid and so mean that I just feel guilty. 

I did apologize to him.  It is just I am so tense.  Dealing with so much.  My kids are really just driving me nuts lately.

    I always say, my first child is my teacher. It's only from him that I learn how to be a parent. So really , because there is no fool proof manual on this subject, I had to be honest with my son and say, ''when I say something it's firstly gonna be based on the fact I love you, secondly, I am also human so I won't necessarily get it right first time, I will try hard because getting it wrong is not the plan.

    Walk with me, learn with me, teach me. I love you. ''

    Tell him you love him, but that when he does x or y that it drives you nuts. Tell him you're insecurities about parenting, but that you are still the parent. Just don't let him turn around and throw that in your face.
