Where Has the Demon Child Come From?
I really don't know what is wrong with my son lately. He is having mood swings that change so fast I am surprised he doesn't get whiplash. He won't listen to anything I say or and I have no chance of him doing what I ask of him. He has been like this for nearly two weeks now.
It all started the other week when on the Monday night he skipped a school club just so he could walk to the other side of town with his friend. He lead us to believe that he was still at club and when there was no sign of him when we expected him to be home I phoned him to be told that he was on his way home after someone had ruined his snowman that he had spent the last hour building with his friend. Ok when he came home he admitted that lied but didn't see what was wrong with him doing what he did. Needless to say he wasn't a happy chap when he was told he was grounded that night. He then started with the attitude and kept telling us he was out of line.
For the rest of the week we just got the spoilt brat attitude. Then on the Friday when he didn't arrive home at the time we expected we tried ringing him to find out where he was. His phone was switched off and just get going to the answer machine. After half an hour from when we expected him being home he still wasn't home so we had to go looking for him. We walked the streets for an hour trying to find him only for me, sent home by hubby as I was really struggling to walk, to meet him on his way in. This was at 5pm (he finishes school at 3.15pm) and by the time hubby had got back home it was too late for him to make and eat dinner for him and I was left finishing dinner for me and Alex. He showed no remorse for what he had done and didn't seem to care about what he has caused and what he had put us through. Again the spoilt brat attitude arose with the 'You don't care about me' insults and general ranting. This lead to him being grounded for a week which resulted in more shouting and screaming.
Well his grounding should have been up today but during the past week he has been in such a mood, breaking rules and just generally not listening. I have caught him on his phone at gone 11pm once and 1am another night which has resulted in his phone being confiscated too. After this with the phone, going walkabout with his friends again and a huge argument he had with Dave because of moody spoilt brat attitude he has been grounded for the rest of the month. This means no tv, no phone, no tablet and no xbox till the end of the month and if he doesn't change then it will be extended.
That is Alex in the ph oto . I wish I knew why my son had turned into a demon child these past couple of weeks.
Bye for now!
