I packed up his Xbox and sent him to the principals office (cussing)
Not my son. My brother in law; 24 years old. He lives with us right now because he got a job here in town and it was too far to drive from his house, its a 2 month deal and he goes home on the weekends.
He plays Call Of Duty on the xbox 360 and gets too into it. He screams at the TV, throws his controller on the ground, hes pretty much a pathetic 5 year old throwing a tantrum because hes losing. I've told him TONS of times that theres kids listening and watching him and he can't be doing that. He apologizes and stops for a round or two and does the same thing. He'll scream at the TV saying stuff like "You damn __ why cant you just die" "die you m'f'er" "you c_ sucking a-hole" "DIE" "f'ing a-hole" "im gonna blow your head off m'f'er" the list goes on and on.
My 5 year old asked what some of those words meant, and i told him that uncle james gets mad and says bad words and that hes not suppose to repeat them because thats not nice"
He went to school today and when him and another kid got in a fight he loudly anounced "im gonna blow your head of m'f'er you suck" when the school called me, even they were shocked. Hes quiet, shy and overall a happy little kid and that come out of no where. I went and talked to the principal and i told them about BIL, and so i went home and sent BIL to the prinicpals office.
Where he got his butt ripped. and had to apologize to my son, the classroom and the principal for teaching him that. I wasn't expecting that all, but i'm glad they did. and it gave me time to pack up his xbox and games and give it to my mom to keep until he goes back on the weekends and its not coming back; if it does its getting packed up again.
Was that overboard? Should i have just talked to him at home and not involved the school?
