Not a good night for difficult child. He came home from camp in a bad mood. Said he had received a 20 minute time out (his first one in 1 1/2 weeks at camp)today but that it was none of my business why. I didn't push him because of the mood he was in. He was swearing at us so we tried to calm things down with a movie. After the movie he appeared calmer so we asked if he wanted to play a game of Horse (a basketball game). For no reason he started getting angry. He squeezed my neck really hard at one point. husband and I told him we were done because of the way he was playing. He then was calling husband a really bad name so I told him he needed to go to his room for a time out. He refused so I told him if he didn't go to time out he would lose snacks at the movie on Saturday. He proceeded to pour a glass of milk over me, the blanket, and the chair which, of course, went on to the carpet. He said it was my fault because I was trying to take away his snack on Saturday. I told him the snack was gone for Saturday. So he went crazy and started coming at me. He had his shoes on and I am embarrassed to admit I ran upstairs and locked myself in the bathroom (he is getting really strong and I just didn't want to end up hurt. husband had to come up and he started swearing at husband. To get him away from the door husband had to lock him in his room. Again we thought he had calmed down. He apologized to husband. When husband asked him to also apologize to me he refused, stomped off, dumped the contents of my purse (just now as I am typing this). Hopefully he will fall asleep soon as he has already had his night medications. I'm sorry this is so long. Thanks for letting me vent-I'm just so tired of the violence (even though it is less than it used to be).
