Anthony is in first grade and just turned seven the end of December is very smart. I have spent all of his life trying to protect him and be a buffer from his family chaos.I teach his manners and respect. When he gets home he hears cuss words that would make a sailor blush.Some bad words are often directed at him. He has very little self esteem want to teach him to pray and mediate. He takes karate but they haven't worked on repsect as much as I would have liked.Guess it is hard in a family that doesn't respect each other, each others space or each others privacy.
You are a blessing! I am so thankful he has you in his life. The things you do with him/for him today will influence the rest of his life. Lets pray he has a chance to break away from the negative influences in his life and build a worth while future. I believe he is on that path due to you!
