So, I took her to lunch today to discuss her poor life decisions and this is part of the convo:
I don't yell at any of them too much anymore. They know what I expect and know when they have made a major mistake.
Oh- if they are doing that annoying, "Not touching you" fighting I sound like a fish monger's wife, but for the most part I just talk to them like I wish I had been talked to.
So she admitted, in conversations with her friends, yelling parents are OK but the parent that says, "I am disappointed in you" has just stabbed you in the heart.
I asked, "It really bothers you that I don't yell, doesn't it"?
Her, "Yeah, I feel like a fuck up".
grrrr- some days I just can't win *weak smile.
