last night he got in a little late because they had a function at school. He still had some homework that he had to finish so I told him if he went to bed that he would have to get up and finish it this morning. Well, he was already hard to get up, but did a lot better than what he usually does.
He was having his breakfast and was working on his homework. He then asked me if he could take some cards to school with him. I told him that if he didn't finish his work then no he couldn't. He wasn't as mad as I thought he would get.
Here's the kicker... we get to school and I guess they have something on Wed. for them to bring change and get something at the snack bar after school. He asked if he could have some money and I told him, "No, you didn't get finished like I asked you to." That's when the fit starts. He grabs his books and gets out of the car all mad.
But for the first time.... I don't feel guilty for not giving in to him. I gave him the specifics of what I expected and he didn't do it. I just feel like I shouldn't give in to him just because he "wants" something. My son is 12 btw...
Yay me!! :0) lol
So to make this a question... hom many of you moms out there have the "mommy guilt" if your kids get mad??
