Looking for sympathy today.
My teenage son is acting like a spoiled, self-centered, tantrum throwing
. I know it is something every parent has to deal with, but it makes me feel like
!!! He is normally a great kid, but there are times...
Up until now, his outbursts have been few and far between, and always at home. Last night, he had a little fit in church. Very embarrassing.
He has no clue how bad he made himself look, all because I told him he could not tap a pencil on the pew during the sermon. Seriously? He acted like a cartoon character shaking before it explodes,
and hyperventilated himself on purpose.
If he wasn't so much bigger than me, I would have taken him out and spanked him.
Hubby lit into him as soon as we got in the car.
When we got home, he showered and went to bed without saying a word. This morning he was still giving us the silent treatment. We just went about our business like nothing was happening. I refuse to get into it right before school/work and set such a negative tone for the day. Tonight when we get home, it will be a different story.
Arrrrrgh! One minute they can be so responsible and mature, and the next they are acting like a tantrum throwing toddler.
This too shall pass. Just hope I still have some hair left when it does.
So glad I have a place to vent. I feel much calmer now.
