Well again my 17 yr old. Last night I found out he had purchased a movie on tv for 19.00 without asking. He's never done it before but all I said was "well you can pay me back for that, you have Christmas money". From then on he went from happy laughing everything great to total opposite. he told me to "f" off. I told him to hand me his phone, which he did surprisingly. when I told him to go to his room he flat out told me no and didn't. I just left the room at that point to keep from exploding. I saw his laptop on my way back to my room and picked that up too. Later I told him to put his retainer in and he refused to look at me or answer me. I told him " fine, your choice, you've chosen to have consequences for acting like this" and walked off. He then yelled at me "give me my retainer". I gave it to him and he turned and said " "f" you, go to bed". Yes he told ME to go to bed. There was no point in arguing. I have his phone and laptop now. Today I'm going to go through his room and remove everything but his bed and sheets and basic clothing for this week. The answer to every request of his this week will be "no". He will go ballistic at this and there is no telling what he will do.
