Do other parents have a hard time talking nicely to their child after being so mistreated? Oh, I also went to the police station and spoke to someone in regards to kicking a 16 yr old out. Once they turn 16 you can kick them out. However, if they do damages the parents are still responsible. Well, If he's still at home I'm responsible so it really doesn't matter. What does matter is that my home is no longer being destroyed and I'm no longer being abussed. Anyway, getting back to not being able to talk nicely to him. This morning, like any other morning lately. He was irate because I didn't have the ingredients for making fin pancakes, but I could make other pancakes. He didn't like that idea! He slammed French doors to the point of wanting to brake the windows..he broke another fan and the broom. He told me to fk off and he stayed in the living room for a bit. Then calmed down came out and asked if I'd take us to mcdonalds...instead of getting into why I won't do that- I said, I misplaced my debit..." he found it"along with 5$ cash.. well I'm making grilled cheese - you want one? He asked then for the 5$ he's always wanting 5$ for what I have no idea? He says to get a hotdog from the corner store...we did this same run around about 5$ last Night.. he's Not getting money from me, period! He stormed out of the house screaming my cooking ing sucks...he gone out the door and kicked overthe outside chair. I went did my running around, plus groceries...came home he was here..he went through everything grabbed the salad...stood in the way of me putting things away...I said, you know your in my way, and instead of helping yourself right now...help with putting things away, he just looked at me...I then said, or maybe that might hurt you to help me? Heaven forbid .... He said while storming out of the kitchen, well maybe I'm going to hurt myself....I told him if your planning on hurting yourself then that's a trip to see the doctor? Told me to fk off again and he left.. I don't know what to make of this because the other day he ripped up all his pictures..I asked why he keeps do that and he said he has a reason for it..now today he says he may hurt himself? Now, I know I was not the nicest with my voice, or for what I said....I'm having a hard time acting as if nothing is happening and being all nicey, nicey after the storms hit... Anyone else having a hard time being nice?
