Almost everyday, I have a significant struggle with my 12 year old son. He will not listen to me as I ask him to wake up. I begin by easily trying coax him out of bed with it increasing with my voice raising then eventually ends up with us screaming at each other. I am so tired. I know he wants to have some sense of control and I am trying to allow him that but in the mornings, we have school or church where there is a schedule. I am really struggling. I have even tried to provide him with choice with consequences...always screaming. I know its a phase but this is very upsetting. Just needed to share this because I am about to break. Thanks!
