difficult child is a pain this morning. He is arguing about anything, can't or thinks he can't do any thing for himself, and is just too irritable. I finally sent him to his room and told him I would take him to school. This is a punishment for him, as he hates it when I take him. Unfortunately it is a punishment for me too!!! He has a girlfriend now, and a real one not a pretend one like he has had before. She has been coming over with some friends and they all walk to school together. This is just making me nervous. Am I being paranoid? He just seems off lately. He forgot his bike helmet yesterday, and I got in the car and took it to him. His buddies little sister came up to the car and his buddy kept telling her to be quiet. I wonder what she wanted to say?? I asked difficult child about it, but he said his buddy just wanted to hear what I said. Whatever. That has made me more suspicious. I want to get difficult child into counseling, but think he would do better with a male. None of the people psychiatrist reccomended are male!! I am just ready to pop.
