Both the difficult children have been so nitpicky lately and so much more intolerant of each other. difficult child 1 has always had certain things that bother him.....difficult child 2's feet on the couch, the smell of hand sanitizer, the loud volume of difficult child 2's voice, etc. difficult child 2 has usually accommodated them without a problem. The last month or two, he totally ignores difficult child 1's pleas about these same issues and at times insults difficult child 1 and pushing his buttons. Now they BOTH have "issues" with each other's habits and NEITHER is willing to respect the other's wishes. It's so bad that I have implemented a RULE that unless I am in the same room WITH them, they are not allowed to be in the same room. Both of them see the other's actions as 100% intentional and neither will keep their opinions to themselves and neither will see that there is another point of view than their own. When I try to explain things to them, they get mad at ME. It is sooooo frustrating. difficult child 2's therapist says his stuff is typical teen and didn't see any point in seeing him anymore because he wasn't talking about anything. He even commented to her, when I was in the room, that it is more like therapy for me than for him. If it really is typical teen, he's doing a great job of acting like difficult child 1 ALL THE TIME with stomping temper tantrums thrown in for good measure. This week is Spring break so they aren't even in the home much at the same time and the huge breaks from each other don't seem to be helping AT ALL. The minute they walk in the house they are at each other. I'm going to go absolutely bonkers. Thanks for letting me vent. As always, advice is always welcome. If there isn't any, just knowing there's support here helps a TON!!
