Ok, some of you all already know of the problems I'm having with my son. Well, he's 16, anger issues, mouth, blah blah blah. He is going to jr prom and he is all nice and sweet because 9 other friends are getting a limo and he's been invited, of course to pay his part.
I do not have the money for...
his tux (80 - 100 bucks)
2 tickets (i'm assuming i'm paying for his date's - thats prob 40 - 60 bucks)
her coursage (sp) - who knows
prom pics - again, who knows
SR pics, if he doesn't get referrals, smallest package is 500, already put down 125
his birthday is in may - of course he expects a gift
and he wants another 50 - 70 bucks for a freakin limo ride for JUNIOR prom. I expect him to be in one for SENIOR prom, but not junior. So he threw a little fit, came back with the I hate you I hate this place bullshit.
Uh, sorry, I have another child, I have bills, I have insulation that needs put in my house, i have freakin therapy bills every week, braces for my daughter next month, eye glasses for all 3 of us. he doesn't freakin appreciate what I'm already doign for him, he just has a freakin cow because of what i'm not doing for him.
I really don't like being a mom sometimes.

well if it was me alot of the problem would be fixed if he was giving me attitude since he wouldn't be allowed to go to the dance. he is 16 and that is old enough to take on some responsibilities to earn extra money. i feel for you and i'm not looking forward to this with my kids lol. i do remember how i was at that age and how my mother handled it. she did the above mentioned things and it worked well. teach responsibility and respect. gl momma. nobody said it was gonna be easy.......
