Fam, I need uplifting. I am a single parent of a 12yr old. No support system. The family I have here have no kids, and live the high life. How do you direct a child who is not misbehaving but maybe LAZY in the African sense of does not help around the house no matter how you train them, and you have to keep repeating yourself. Next to taking the child for testing, how else can I navigate? It is a daughter. Maybe single parents out there can chime in. I am just tired. we are in the USA, and you know how that goes............ fast, fast, pace of life.
