So, after a halfway decent week with-my kids on vacation in CO., we fly home and husband decides it's okay for difficult child to eat a muffin from Starbucks at the airport. I stayed out of it. (My sister in CO. also fed him peanut butter toast for breakfast yesterday.) husband decides that difficult child has been so good about taking his pill that husband can go to work and not have to give difficult child his pill in the a.m... he can do it by himself. Yeah, right! We are now 20 min. late for baseball camp ($150)and difficult child is still in bed, snarling. I've taken away his comforter (that's what DF does to encourage him) and told him to get up 10X. I called husband and he refuses to come home from work to deal with-it but I told him he has to, since it was his decision to leave difficult child at home with-me. He told me to have our daughter. wake him up! This, by the way, is using The Explosive Child techniques... difficult child likes either a Rice Crispie treat with-his pill, or a bowl of Frosted corn flakes a/almond milk. We have discussed all the alternatives and difficult child chose his own methods, so there should be no room for argument. But he's in bed right now, snarling... clearly, he hasn't gotten enough sleep and, again, husband went to bed with-o making sure difficult child was asleep--in fact, he left him downstairs on the computer, and I got him off... husband seems to be under the mistaken notion that difficult child is old enough to police his own bedtime. Every single thing with-these kids requires structure and direction. husband just doesn't get it!!!! I was doing very well but this is a huge setback... what especially bothers me is that as usual, I bear the brunt of it and it makes me resent husband and his poor choices, especially since I had no input.
