Second day bomb!

I thought maybe the day was going to be great. It turned real quick to the downside, so needless to say no writing, as of yet.

Why does the youngest kid of the family have to be the most stubborn? My young one decided last night to not do his homework, so he got his TV taken away, and he continued with being stubborn. I had hoped he would get up this morning and want to do the homework, no such luck, and in fact, he refused to go to school! Even when hubby got involved.

So he got not only his computer taken away, he got his birthday party taken away today and was bored all day long. If you can’t do what you are told then the fun stuff has to be taken away. Really sucks though that it is his birthday. We told him he had to earn it all back and he still really isn’t getting it.

What did turning 10 all of a sudden make him into the devil’s child? Wow, I can now tell my oldest, 21 year old daughter that she has been surpassed by her baby brother with stubbornness. I just hope he doesn’t surpass her on teenage year crimes.

I still have only 300 words wrote for my NaNo novel. Grumble.

  1. Parenting is so hard, isn’t it? It’s because there is no manual and no answer fits all families. Every parent learns on the job. Still, being the taller human being with more life experience and maybe just a bit of hindsight when you look back into your own past you should be three steps ahead of him. Take heart, he’s only ten. It’s not too late. If taking away things hasn’t helped try something else. Stubborn people don’t like to lose face. There could be a way around it without either side losing face or your losing authority. Good luck.
