Little is playing games with the adults in his life, and it's getting very old. I'm not too happy with Little's step-mom either. Little had his Play Station taken away a few weeks ago because he wasn't helping around the apartment and yelling at us whenever we asked him to do anything he considers work. DF told him that he would have to earn it back by helping around here without complaining and by speaking to us with respect. He went to visit his Nana for a while, and when he came back, he was demanding to have the game system back. DF told him that he hadn't earned it back yet. This is when Little started screaming that he wanted to go live somewhere else, that all we ever do is yell at him and make him do SO MUCH WORK!!! REALLY?????!!!!! The hardest I've seen difficult child work is when he's trying to kill zombies on his video game. Well, last week, Little was back home with me sporting a brand new laptop that Nana had given him. That basically took the place of the Play Station, and he was hiding in his room with the door mostly closed, refusing to help me. On the second day, he yelled at me that he WOULDN'T do the dishes. I took the computer from him, telling him that he would have to earn it back the same way as the Play Station. This is when Little decided to call Step-Mom to complain about me. He also called his Nana and arranged, without permission from DF to go to her house, and actually thought that I was going to give him back the laptop since he wasn't going to be home. YEAH RIGHT!!! It's still in my closet along with the Play Station. He spent a week with Nana, and then arranged, AGAIN without permission, to go to Step-Mom's house. He was been with her since Saturday. She called DF on Saturday, and told him that we need to have a meeting, the three of us and Little. Supposedly, Little told her some things that have happened at home that SHE thinks need to be talked about. Now, she knows that difficult child lies through his teeth about EVERYTHING, and that he LOVES to play people against each other, but she won't tell DF what Little has said, only that I had been yelling at him the whole time he was at home. YEAH RIGHT!!! Try the other way around!!!! He also told her that he doesn't want to live with us anymore. I find it very insulting that Step-Mom is refusing to tell DF what Little is saying and saying that she won't tell us unless we meet with her somewhere. REALLY???? At this point, I really don't care what he told her, because I'm betting it's 100% fiction. Little is talking to HER because he knows that the relationship between her and DF is pretty bad, and that they will take different sides, regardless of what they know. ARGHHHHH!!!! We haven't decided whether we should meet with her or not, but I don't want to. We've also been thinking about just going and getting him this evening since he didn't have permission to be there in the first place. I'm so confused and angry, I don't know what I'm thinking about. It also doesn't help that I found out this weekend that my Grandpa is in the ICU, and it doesn't look good. This is why we didn't just go pick Little up from Step-Mom's. I'm already a wreck, and having him home, knowing I'm sad, is like throwing gasoline on a fire. Any advice is very welcome. Thanks I hate to say it, but I don't think I even want him to come home.
