Making Progress!

Made some progress with the son!  He actually CRACKED A SMILE!  I haven't seen that in MONTHS!  Of course I had to bloody him up a bit first.

Cut his hair (every thursday until he's ungrounded) and SOMEONE (hubby) dropped it and the side piece is broken and I didn't realize it when I was trimming up the back to look nice.  He squealed and I put it against my hand to figure out why it hurt and it bloodied me up!  He's got a couple of scratches on his neck, now I have to buy new clippers.  But when it was all said and done he smiled.

That sweet, charming smile I've missed for so long.

I told his father that he smiled at me.  He asked what I did to get him to smile and I said well, I had to bloody him up and then I hit him in the face.  The hit in the face was with his shirt, I was slapping it on him getting the majority of the hair off his back and shoulders and he's got this "mustache" and I slapped it there and said he needs a shower I couldn't get that hair off.

Yes and No.  His hair is a vanity of his, but he doesn't take care of it.  We've had problems where he had it so greasy that he got sores on his head and he didn't say anything.  We found out because he was bleeding.  Turned out he has some scarring now.  So we are keeping it cut every week until he can learn to take care of himself. 

He can get ungrounded by taking care of himself.  Take showers, brush teeth, clean his clothings, etc.    So yes, it is punishment because he won't take care of his hair.
