Please don't tell me..."Tis the season..." The disrespect in this house has GOT to stop and I don't care if it IS the season that's causing the chaos. difficult child has a mouth like Grand Canyon and no matter what the warnings or threats, he keeps on and on and on. He's swinging at the dogs and making them growl and bark incessantly. He's making faces at me. He doesn't do ONE THING I tell him to do. I'm soooo exhausted with it. I just told him that when he was a toddler I could kinda handle the UNmedicated disrespect that came out of his mouth, but that he's so big now that it's as if it were his father treating me like that. I told him his father has never, ever, ever, treated me that way, even ONCE in the 38 years of our marriage!!! I don't threaten unless I follow-thru no matter how many "I'm sorrys" I get after the fact. It's DONE.....one of his presents goes back to the store today. I will not reward him with something tangible after being treated like the scum of the earth. I also told him that one will be gone each day that he continues to treat me as he has this morning. It's always worse in the mornings and husband went for bloodwork, so left earlier than normal. The fight was on. Why, why, why does he do this??? He's TWELVE. Is this going to continue all of the rest of his/my life? I'm not real sure I can do this.
