I try so hard to help those around me in any and all ways and no matter what; I get stepped on every time, I am very disrespected by my children (19&23 yr old girls)and I am feeling so weary of the way they treat me. Am I i just supposed to take it walk away and go on or is standing up for myself the way to go cause in told I am the problem and I should just walk away but I am so tired of the disrespect and disregard for my feelings and needs as a mom/ person. Please pray for insight and strength for my family and I as well as unity and forgiveness. Thank you! God bless!

Well first of all the message is as is Honor thy Mother and Father plain and simple! And your children aren't children anymore they are adults! And as a mother myself of a 21 yr old daughter who has become distant and disrespectful! I can sort of relate to your pain, but the thing is when the child becomes to grown to be told something and they disrespectful to the parents! Than its time for them to find and pay their own way in life! I never gave up on my daughter but she is an adult with a different agenda so I allow her to experience adult hood in the flesh! But I keep her lifted up in prayer,you have to stand up for yourself because no one else will if you don't. And as parents we often forget that these aren't our children! The Lord only allows us to borrow them for a season to love,support and guide them in a way which is right. But everyone knows that once they become a certain age and a certain way! You have to thank God for the opportunity and experience of raising His children! But tell Him it has become a bit much for you so your giving them back! Keep them lifted in prayer because you can't reraise them.And the worst heartbreak is the heartbreak you get from your child! I know from experience, I'm just starting to feel better from this experience! The Lord will straighten them out He is able to do all things if you trust and believe that He can.

I too have experienced this sort of behavior from my adult sons and this has hurt me a lot. only way is to pray for them to god our father to change their behavior, Its one of the worst things to happen for the parents, that the children disrespect them. Mostly the television and intefnet influence has turned them this way. One dose from God is enough for them to change, let that not be a harsh one.

I must agree with those above. Never allow yourself to be disrespected by anyone especially your children. As parents we work hard to put a roof over their head and food on the table. We may not want to let our children grow and go through life trials like we did but we have to give them a push sometimes. Cut the cord. Talk with them, no yelling or pointing fingers. Allow your pastor to get involved. If that doesn't work and they still are disrespectful allow them to live by their own rules but not in your house. Your heartache will lead to your depression, weary, sickness, and heartbreak. You can't kill yourself. Tough love need to happen. This is not you leaving your children this is allowing them to grow and seeing what life is about.

Matt. 6:33 - Seek you first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and then thing, all these things, will be added unto you. Unless we put Christ Jesus "first" in our lives, things may not be good. God bless your seeking God first.

"If we can kneel bfore God, we can stand before any mann. the best thing to do in this case is to pray for those children...You can set atleat one hour to pray every day for them. leave them to do what they feel like. correct them when they wrong but dont argue with them. let God work in thier lives...trust God and ull be surprised. the battle is not lost until its really lost.
