Where do I begin!!!???? He is a handful and I cannot take much more.
My son and I are not speaking and actually it does not even bother me, is that bad?
He loves to play video games, obviously.When he has bad grades he is not aloud to play Xbox. Unfortunately he has found a very similar computer game to COD and plays all the time. So this past Friday my children were off of school and he decided to grab is laptop mid morning and begin to play this computer game. Around noon I asked him to turn it off and do something else and he informed me that there is absolutely nothing for him to do. So needless to say I just continued doinhg whatever through the day. I then was sitting outside on my lanai having an adult beverage around 4:30 and asked him to turn it off, again. He totally ignored me.
My husband, his father, gets home around 6:15.
I came back in around 5:50 and asked him again to turn it off and he says that he was planning on it. I asked him as to why he could not turn it off earlier and if he was turning it off because his father was coming home and did not want to get into trouble? He stated NO. Just to mention he has a girlfriend, so I stated that he could not see her the rest of the weekend because once again he was being disrespectful. He then started yelling at me stating that I was a liar and told his girlfriend's mother all kinds of stuff about him. This then became a screaming match. I can tell you I did not lie and do not lie to anyone. Actually I am told that I am too honest.
My husband then came home and we discussed what happened. Mind you this has been a repetitive occurrence for years and is not the first time, in reference to the disrespect and video game situation. My husband informed me that there is no reason for me to be upset.
Apparently my husband had a discussion with him the following day, when I was not here, informing him that he can play the computer game 2 hours per day and that is all. So that same day I caught him again defying the odds and trying to push the issue and play it longer. Then on top of it my husband allowed him to see his girlfriend on Sunday and informed me that this is not her fault. So he defied me again, both my husband and my son. So I informed my husband that I am no longer parenting my son or helping him. I have not spoken to my son since Friday and am having minimal conversation with my husband.
This has been going on for years. I truly am over all of it.
I could go on and on about other situations but this is the most recent.
