But he doesn't feel that he should have to give respect to anyone else. Drives me CRAZY!!!! He is mean to rude to everyone in the house, especially to easy child tonight, and wound up screaming about how he is more important than easy child and should just get more respect than easy child because he is 5 years older and it's "so not fair" that I give easy child respect. I explained to him as calmly as I could that they both deserve respect not just from me, but from each other as well, and he wanted to hear none of it! He feels that because easy child is younger he deserves nothing and the fact that I give easy child respect just proves that I love him more. Really, that argument is getting so OLD with me! Then he tells me that he wants to start his homework at 8:30 pm, and that he has an hour and forty minutes of reading to do as part of his homework. Hmmmm....lets think about this. He wants to start homework at 8:30, he has over an hour of reading to do (he's supposed to read for 20 minutes a day, but he puts it all off until the last minute) and his bed time is 9:00 pm? I told him that he needs to adjust is plan because that was not going to work. So he stomps out of the room (at this point it was about 7:00) saying he would "just do everything LATER!" I just went up to his room to give him his medications and he layed down on his bed and he's SLEEPING!! I got him awake enough to swallow the medications and I asked him about homework. "I'll do it later, I said!" Looks like someone is going to be getting up REALLY early in the morning to get his homework done.
