I’m a single mom to a son.  I don’t do the “king” or “prince” stuff with him.  He’s an adorable little boy.  A bit of a handful.  Of course I love him to pieces.

However, I’m aware that he’s human.  He has the same potential as anyone else to grow up and be a jerk.  So I’m a bit firm with him.

I don’t want to be that mother in law who treats any person he brings home like dirt, because I assume my son is better than any of them.

I won’t coddle or excuse his bad behaviors just because he’s my little boy.

It sounds harsh.  And it certainly isn’t the popular opinion in single mom groups.

But I do love him and want the very best for him.  I just don’t agree that treating him like he’s better than others is the way to accomplish that.
