My husband is out of town for work until Thursday. I can't imagine how single parents deal with difficult child's alone! My son difficult child completely takes advantage of me when my husband is away. I can't leave difficult child 15 & easy child sis 13 alone for 15 minutes or they're at each other's throats! Always started by some obnoxious thing my difficult child did. She had the laptop in the bathroom listening to music while showering, I'm in my room relaxing (trying to) and all hell breaks loose... he wants the laptop so, he's trying to break into the bathroom to get it. She comes out screaming and one of the most irritating things he does is call everyone insane and acts totally calm after he's ticked one of us off. His rationale was "she wouldn't open the door and I wanted it" that's is his justification. He always has an excuse, or it's someone else's fault it's like the behavior of a 3 year old! Man oh man!
