Hi everyone, Thanks again for those who gave me support before. Its been since August since I wrote thinking I don't need this site and its ALL my fault. Well, I still think that in many ways, but, only some my fault. My kids are spoiled from my dad, grandpa and whenever their dad feels like seeing them. Its hard for me to stick with their timeouts, take away privileges and such because of this and to keep peace. I do believe someone told me in one of my past posts that some of this attitude can be hereditary from their dad. (Long,Long history of issues with all males in his family, not sure of females? Im no angel though either, but not that bad either! I do not like to blame others for anything though and feel bad even saying it/they have an effect. As for me, no weight loss,still stress eating, and sick for over month and half(bronchitis and colds) and my father and grandfather's health is blah. So back to my kids. As of today, they still demand and argue everything. My son started to hit us again,slam cabinets and the refrigerator door. In the stores, he is a nightmare to take, as well as getting him ready or to study. Just today, in two different stores, he thought it was funny to demand or just grab stuff he wanted even though we discussed it before we went. Running and hiding and when we barely put our hand on his to guide him with us, he screamed don't touch me! Don't follow me, MOVE!!!Oh yes I get what I want, and when we were looking at clothes, he wanted P.J. which he didn't need -he has so so many,- he yelled he wanted to try them on cause his sister was trying on regular shirts. I told him " no one tries on PJ.s honey, its like a game to guess your size or what we have at home" WOW!!! Did that end a battle, so I got the car keys ,told my dad im taking the kids to the car and he wouldn't leave. So I told him nicely lets go, he said "no, i will hit and kick people all here. I then told him I would get the manager and security to come to too him and by that time my dad was done and we left. "His speech is still in progress, and probably has another year or two to go. His report cards are graded by:E for Excellent which he gets for class discussions and asking/answering questions. G-Good for religion,P.E. and misc. S-Satisfactory and N-Needs Improvement. Well, he can only read a few words because he will not listen to us, the teacher, or practice like he should. He Needs improvement on finishing his work as well. He has had some good weeks with no warnings or times outs, but he get them for not listening/settling down etc. So I'm proud its not all the time! Things with their dad has gotten bad again. He is now on his 4th wife ( I kid you not, its in open court records "marriage" for 3 different states) No one believes me!Not only did he marry again, I found out through the court records for now the second time. I confronted him on the IM ,with still no name ,no new address in his town, no new phone number,and we are suppose to go on a planned trip with him in a few weeks,and i said it wasn't right to bring her when we/kids don't know her for a major vacation, and all he can say to me is "chill, why you so upset? its been hectic here and later when he finally had a so called conversation with me, all he said was" u should of done everything i said and I could of seen us married,and that the next time he sees me it will be for some um.. "all day and night fun",. Oh and kept changing his story,first he could make it, then he had to work, now i found out hes taking off to somewhere else for a vacation the same time we had it planned with him. Uggh, the kids are so confused.I had to keep asking him, or he never would of told me, we would of shown up and him not be there! So, the good news out of all this is that my Aunt and I are speaking again! My grandpa said hes doing to much but school and one night of practice,and one time on the weekend game is not that much. So I will have a better fit schedule, like long walks, games outdoors and so on. Getting him to sit and listen, and practice is another issue! Well, I hope all you here are doing better and to the new comers, you are in great hands here! So sorry its so long!
