Update on texting

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Good Afternoon; I am working with GF to use words that are not fighting and hurting. What I figure if I can get her not to bring out her street fighter instinct that happens when she is confronted, they can have a chance. I told her to take a time out from texting today. You must talk today. Funny a few years ago I would not have believed that young people would not have the skill to communicate with one and another. My DS knows better but since he has been in the Army nearly 6 years he has forgotten. I talked to my son last night and told him similar when she was giving him the silent treatment.
She has a very foul mouth and can really send the hurtful barbs my son's ways. She really goes over board on occasions. But since the baby, she has gotten better. I told them to get an appointment for couples counseling today. Then take baby in a stroller for lunch and walk. They need to get away from phone - put phone on silent mode and talk. Talk about how you want to live in future with their baby. I know my son, he is not always an angel but he has a kind heart and really loves his daughter. emoticon emoticon

    It's all about maturity and sometimes, we handicap the people we love in allowing them to talk and do these things to us. A baby is an eye-opener for some.Sometimes, we have to realize things for ourselves. Keep teaching and praying! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
