My son (the out of control teenager) falls in the mascot category and I would appear to be a sensitive and indulgent parent. I thought I was very assertive but I guess I’m actually pretty emotional and inconsistent. Also my son was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder when he was 8. He’s 13 and doing really well now. But we are stuck in some old patterns and he is running the show with temper and manipulation.
