See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Over the past year or so, things have gotten crazy in my house. SS,16, has gotten to the point where he does not speak to me, follow any rules, or do anything whatsoever around the house. He tells DH what he needs/wants knowing full well that DH is not very dependable.
The last time we spoke was about 2 months ago. I said something to him because he was being nasty to my DS, also 16, showing off for his friend. It blew up with "I'm going to call my dad". DH tried to bring my DS into it along with the friend but I didn't allow it. I found out later that DH said basically the blowup was my fault because I am mean to SS and all I do is holler at him. Really?? I don't even speak to the boy. If I say "Hey" to him I am being mean.
Now it has gotten ridiculous. SS is nonexistent when it comes to the family. He stays in his room and sneaks to the kitchen when he wants something to eat. DH does not make him do anything. It is aggravating because my DS helps DH whenever he can, helps me with the baby, and pitches in wherever he can.
I am at my wits end. DH will do nothing to help rectify the situation. I am lucky if DH even lets me know when SS is going to BMs house. I have had to delete myself completely from anything to do with SS and focus on the rest of us because I am not leaving. Any suggestions?
