Lets hope this lasts. My 16 year old son, like I told my husband, he's the apple that didn't even hit the grown but stuck in a lower branch he's so much like his dad.
This has been causing marital problems between me and hubby lately and last night I finally put my foot down when I found a few hundred dollars missing from my room. Yes I believe my son took it. He took a laptop, hard drives, candy (which was right above the money), and also my daughter had money go missing TWICE already in the last few weeks and he was seen coming out of her room with her not in there.
Well this morning, hubby told him to get the homework he did this weekend and turn it in. To take the paper he had with all his missing work and get the ones he turned in initialed off on. He was told that he needed to make things right with me today.
This is what happened. He came home, sat in the kitchen (I was in the living room in sight of him the entire time) until I told him to leave the kitchen the girls needed to eat supper. He didn't say a word to me, not hi, kiss my butt, nothing. When his Dad got home (late) he walked in his room and there was the boy waiting to be pat on the head and told to shower and eat something and he was just asked did you do this? No. DId you do that? No. What did I say was going to happen? Lose my bed. Well you lost it. He took his matress off the bed and said he would take the rest of it tomorrow. That boy SCREAMED until 8:55pm! My youngest (12) was screaming back to go to sleep, shut up, no one's coming to your pity party, quit being a baby, etc. I finally told her when she came out to tell me she couldn't take it anymore, tell him to keep screaming because if he's screaming at 9pm I'm going to give her ice cream. Boy that made him stop lol!
Dad did right, he refused to go in there because he knew he would be "chatting" if he did and didn't want to give him the attention he was trying to get. FIRST TIME!!!
