difficult child approached and me said that she's sorry for misbehaving. difficult child: I'm sorry for misbehaving earlier. Me: Thats ok so long as you understand why that behavior is inappropriate. difficult child: I didn't mean from today. Me: What do you mean then kiddo? difficult child: I've just been really mad at mom and you since she and my dad got a divorce. Me: How so? difficult child: Uhmmm nevermind. So at least the cliche of being mad at the loving ones yet adores the felon, cheating, alcoholic, drug user, abusive, child molestor father has finally surfaced.
