I have 3 boys and my oldest can be SO mean sometimes. He is from my previous marriage, but has an amazing relationship with my husband and his 2 baby brothers. Me too for the most part. But last night was so embarassing and I just wanted to cry. We went to dinner with some friends and their kids and he wanted to play some games, so I gave him $2 worth of quarters. He kept coming back for more (which I planned for and had plenty). But when I finally ran out, he acted as if I was the worst mother ever. Picture a 7-yr-old with a 14-yr-old girl's attitude. He was mad that he only got to play in the small sandbox, he was mad that I ran out of quarters, he was mad that the other kids got mac n cheese and he wanted to send his hot dog back and I said no. The other kids were so thankful to their moms and would win them rings in the little games and come back and say "I love you Mommy, here's a present for you." I just wanted to go home! I felt awful. His father is the same way with all this entitlement crap!
My 3-yr-old is always so loving, so I couldn't wait to get home to him. I dropped my oldest off at his dad's and rushed home to my other 2 boys. I feel guilty for feeling this way, but he is just a nightmare sometimes. At the end of the night, he was acting like he was mad at me! He is not always like this, but last night was especially bad. He is usually a good kid, but this isn't the first time this happened so I need advice badly!
