That's what my son called me, the worst mom ever. Also he said that I don't love him and I'm mean. He's been having a rough day today, not sure why he's acting this way. We had an argument earlier when I made him attend a family party that he said he didn't want to go to (which was weird because he stopped having temper tantrums when he was 3 or 4). He ended up sitting in the car pouting for more than half of the party (we were there 3 hours). So he lost his ipod and all electronic privileges for the day because of that, but when he apologized and behaved for the rest of the party we told him he could have 20 minutes of xbox tonight, he's used to playing xbox with his dad every evening while I'm putting his sister to bed. So then he and his dad get into an argument tonight about the xbox while I was giving the baby her bath and putting her down for bed and so his dad took away the xbox and now my son thinks we don't love him. I'm so sad. Tried to talk to him about it but he just started crying and said he wants to be alone. Wth? He's 9 years old and doesn't act like this usually, is it a growth spurt or just the start of the tween years? Oh gosh I hope this isn't a preview of what life is like with a teenager, I don't think my heart can take it. I feel so bad, like I'm going to cry now too.
