He definitely needs more exercise (though his phys ed teacher say he's very fit and he's slim), and less TV and video games. He does have some minor chores and overall, he's a very kind boy and he is smart, though he could work harder at school. He even helps take care of me when I'm sick.
Anyway, now I'm feeling better and I want us (husband, son and me) to resume a more normal life. But I don't want to totally alienate my son with tons of new rules. He is ten and starting to "feel his way around" and I don't want to nip his budding independence too much but I do want to help him develop more self discipline and make his home life more orderly.
Thanks for any comments!
