I've HAD it!!!! The disrespect and rudeness is getting totally out of control. It doesn't matter what consequence I can think of....twelve years of them and they still don't work. I had his mouth one too many times this evening and little gestures like me telling him to stop something (anything)(he was kicking the kitchen cabinets) and he HAS to do it one more time while looking me straight in the eye. I let him have it~~~~~~!!!!! It's getting to the point that I just do NOT care any longer. I'm going to be carried out of this house in a straight jacket if things don't change. I wish I could say it was puberty stuff, but lordy, has he been in puberty for TWELVE years? I only want a little peace and there is never, ever any peace in this house.
