long and difficult day

Friday, September 30, 2011

After spending time in the ER for me since older son got glass in my eye last night and seriously scratched my cornea . This morning I called the social worker at his school and I went in and we had a lengthy discussion and have decided to put him into an anger management class to deal with his anger issues. I have also layed down some ground rules and will definitely need to stick to them. Older son and I went and picked up my friend and she seriously got on his case and then told half her neighborhood which has me angry now. I then fed my older son dinner and then took him to go camping with his boy scout troop and on the way he told me is as afraid of them as he was when his dad was around. I think from now on the only people I will tell what is happening with my boys are my parents and their counselors at school and outside. I seriously don't want my boys being afraid and intimidated at this point so I am going to stay away from my friend at least for a while and let things cool down. Once I came back home I took younger son and picked up a game I had orderded plus paid for 2 others and got younger son a new game.

    Good decision, but I would also consider severely curtailing what you tell your folks. Even when his behavior is poor, none of us like having our worst moments shared with others. Actually hurting you may be a life changing moment for your son and hopefully he will use it as a springboard to becoming the kind of person he wants to be.

    emoticon to hear about your difficult day. I hope your eye gets better soon. I work at a group home for at-risk youth, so I can relate to dealing with an angry teenager. Consistancy is key. Good luck in your journey. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. emoticon
