My 13 year old son gets very angry and then we discipline him....today we told him he was grounded because he talks back to us and when I called him from work, he hung up on me. He was sent to his room where he proceeded to jump out the window and go to his friends house.....now my husband is livid. What do we do?
He and my husband aren't talking and I am always the 'peace maker'. I sat them both down and told them that when everyone is calm, we need to talk about what happened, why it escalated, why he felt that he needed to disobey by jumping out the window and going to his friends house. My son was ready to talk but my husband got up, walked past us and went to bed. It was 6:00! Now it's morning and my husband went to work, I'm home from work for today and my son is sitting here crying. I'm so lost. I really don't know how to parent.
I agree with all of you and my husband NEEDS to get help to control his anger. I'm sometimes more mad at him than my son. They feed off of each others anger. Now my husband came home from work and my son retreated to his room and my husband just passed him and went outside. No words were exchanged. It's almost like I have 2 teenagers. I think I'm just going to talk with my husband and let him know that his anger is a lot of the problem and he needs to deal with it. If he wants to leave me, so be it.Answer Question
