difficult child comes home from schoool about a half an hour before easy child does. He comes home, tells me about his day, and usually retreats to his room. easy child comes home, has a snack, and I get him started on his homework. I let difficult child do his homework when he's ready to do it. I give him a pretty wide berth when it comes to his homework because it always get done and he always does what is expected when it comes to school. easy child usually needs help, so I have him do it after school. This afternoon, easy child is doing his homework and difficult child comes into the kitchen, doing his best to be disruptive. I tell him to knock it off and that easy child is trying to get homework done. difficult child says that he wants a cup of tea, and proceeds to make himself a cup. He sits at the table with his tea, slurps while he'e drinking, stirs his tea making sure that the spoon is making all kinds of noise. Once again I ask him to quiet down because easy child is trying to get homework done and I remind him that if he was trying to get work done and someone was making the noise that he was making he would be throwing a fit about it. He tells me, "I would tell whoever was making the noises to get out and you didn't tell me to get out yet." Fine. I told him to get out of the kitchen. Of course, that starts him all over again. "You told me to get out. You didn't tell easy child to get out." Finally, easy child says that he's going to move into the dining toom to get his homework finished, which he did, but it just makes me so angry that he does this. He wants things a certain way, but if you ask him to make those same accomodations for anyone else that's a completely different story and we're asking way too much of him. Drives me crazy!
