I asked easy child to help me this morning. I was doing yardwork and cleaning up leaves etc...I asked easy child for help putting some sticks that fell onto the yard, into a wheelbarrow. There was 100, It would have taken him a minute. One per second -a minute and a half. He gave me such a hard time and started cursing at me on my lawn with my neighbors there. He doesn't want to do anything. Then I made dinner, (husband is working) for the kids (shrimp on skewers with bbq sauce on the grill, grilled chicken ceasar salad, fresh fruit,) so he's playing on some interactive computer world and said can I bring it up to him on a tray. I did and he yelled at me and said he's busy and doesn't want any of it. Am I the slave here? He'll eat junk food later-So I just wasted an hour cooking and I didn't clean it yet even. I know this doesn't belong here and others have worse troubles, what can I do? This isn't nice. This behavior is becoming quite the norm for him. Am I too lenient? He does well in school so I give him alot of leeway-but I'm doing something wrong. I never raise my voice with him-but his attitude toward me is horrid. Any advice?A TV and computer are in his room- how can I punish him? Or should I ignore?
