I was going to post about 3 days ago because after a mo, we allowed difficult child back on his sister's computer. She's got Internet but my computer is the server. I was hoping that he'd calm down, quit pestering me, and not sneak into her room at night. Several people here posted to me that I should allow difficult child a little bit of computer time a day to get it out of his system. Take something away from someone and they want it even more. Wrong. First, I noticed that a drawer in the bathroom was opened about an inch one a.m., when I remembered cleaning up and neatening things the night b4. Inside the drawer were 2 screwdrivers. Nah, couldn't be. Same thing the next night. difficult child has been very well behaved, and has done extra chores to earn extra time on the computer. I have been allowing him 1 hr. Last night, around 11:30, behind my closed eyelids, I saw a flash. No thunder. Opened my eyes ... no rain. Got up, tried daughter's door (she is camping). It is locked. Check difficult child's bed. No difficult child. Not again. Run back to bedroom to retrieve keys, run back into hall and bump into difficult child, just exiting easy child's bedroom. "I was just getting the cat!" "Right." When he's guilty, he gets mean. He got right in my face. I called him a liar. Couldn't help it. It's true. I took the mouse, keyboard, and hard drive in the case and locked them in my office. The next time difficult child gets a computer, it will be with-o Internet, for school only. Give him an inch ... I don't know what makes me think he'll change. I'm really tired this a.m., because I didn't get to sleep until about 12:30, and the handyman was here at 7 a.m. I just hate babysitting a 13-yr-old.
