My daughter and I have always had a tight realtionship...she and her aDad are too much alike and bicker all the time. He has chosen to have little to do with the difficult parts of child-rearing, instead being the jokester and occasionally the Dictator...I fyou don't want to be involved in the daily nuts and bolts of child rearing(hoemwork, social activities) I don't think you have the right to constantly accuse me of doing a terrible job...I admit I spoil herr to a certain degeree but expect respect and honesty and good grades. her dirty room is not a battle I pick..
 
She is adhd and is stayiing home today to finish a very lonf g project due today and a longer one due tomorrow. I haver heard nothing but what a terrible job I have done...she is 15 and is old enuf to suffer the consequences. His parenting style is the steel boot on the neck, distatorial, threatening and angry. I know that does not work...I am sick of it...he spent the whole weekend partying, eating and drinking and expects to come home to The Cleaver family-NOT!!
 
Katie and I are trying to get thru a very difficult ime without his support, only criticism. I am  staying in my room and he can sit out there and mumble all he wants about how terible K atie and I am-his high school transcripts are littered wwith ds and cs.
 
AARRRGGHH I am so tired of his holier than thou and criticism
 
Thanks for letting me vent
 
Maggie

Be proud of what you do with Katie. He will see his ways in time, but he is missing out on a lot of good stuff, only looking at the negative. Stick to your guns and do what you need to do for you.

I hope it gets better today for you.

Thanks Karen-I hate it when Ilet him get to me like this-his past parenting skills should have given me a clue-he is very into his way or the highway and I am mellow and let it roll off my back. I am a strong enough person to do that-MOST of the time...he just caught me at a vulnerable time and when you hear thae same negative stuff over and over again, you kinda start to believe it...

Anyway, thanks for the support I needed to vent....everything is about HIM, HIM HIM

Love maggie

Maggie,
your doing a great job with Katie, it's what I would probably do and I'd also get on her about leaving a project till
last minute, she'll need to be more respectiful of deadlines even if she has adhd...but you seem
to have everything else in good control, and be strong you don't need any of your hubbys
negativity....bet he brags about his kid to his friends when he's partying....but I do hope once your
daughter is going to college maybe consider leaving your hubby....it'll be hard but you should maybe consider
it for your welfare and health and well being...you don't need his bagage, or if he should
turn violent you don't need that either...your a very worthy person and very very good mom and
terrific homemaker...many blessings and well wishes to you....
Keep strong and know we care and are thinking of you....keep us posted...

Thank you so muchladies for the feedback-I really needed that. We all make some mistakes with our kids but I do have a very honest relationship w/ dtr, shec comes to me and tells the truth, her feelings and not many teens do that. I have worked hard on trust and it has paid off. heis all bark and no bite but he chooses to have litlle to do with daily child-rearing, ocasionally throwing out edicts from his alzyboy-lol..that way, he is not to blame for her shortcomings...he has alot of good qualities but if I was financially set, we'd be gone in a New York second. I am wife #3 and I understand why...I thought I would marry a man who would protectr and provide (altho I was a good provider too) but I married a child who feels he has gotten the short end of the stick and has to blame me for everything. When I told him his angry words hurt me, he said "get over it"

Anyway, I am having a blah day and the Supermag will return...just glad I can come here and complain-thanks for the replies

Love you guys
Maggie

Hi Maggie. You are doing great with Katie. It is difficult to get children with adhd to adhere to time constraints and deadlines. My son is the same way. I have to be very diligent and even still we miss something. Time means nothing.

Keep doing what you're doing. And this is certainly the place to vent.

Hi, Bayou, 

 
As an artist it comes naturally to you to be able to retaliate in your mind. Use it to release the pain; then go into the privacy of your room and pray for his soul that has to be crying out for help. 
 
You must get the anger out in order to remain stable--I'll bet you've got the cleanest house in the county if you use that as an outlet for anger.

We've probably all had similar moments and understand the fury that builds from a terrible weakness. He needs help; any chance you might persuade him to get it? The alcohol has to go if he is ever to recover.

I've got you covered in prayer today.

Take care, Bayou.

And I feeel the prayers...I am actually "over it"...his negativity does not have to be mine and I choose to live a life where good outweighs bad...my positive outlook that God has never abandoned us yet just irritates him, but that is his problem.

I have many blessings and with those comes burdens, which I accept but my Faith and my daughter sustain me thru all storms

Thanks for the lift my friends...I can always count on you...tomorrow is another day

Love Maggie

Maggie...hope your feeling better, I hope you don't let him get you down. We parents are far from perfect but at least we try. It does not sound like he could say that. He loses out in the end, kids don't forget. I will keep you in my prayers. Know I am hear if you have to vent...it's good for a person once in a while so vent away...lol


Take care, Amy

Maggie, I hadn't read this yet. Maybe him and my dad could get a room!! Geeez they sound so much alike. Let me guess- his dad was this way too? I only ask because my grandfather(whom I never met) was apparently an awful man. And made my dad look like the male version of Mary Poppins..

You are a strong lady and you two will het through this!

he cam home drunk upin my daughtersface spit flying and she gave it right back at him-she's a tough kid...she already had finished her projects but he just showed his butt, putting me and Katie down and then this am acting like nothing is wrong. I let him know I am still pissed and will stay pissed...he was waaaay out of line...and out blowing our little bit of xmas $ at the bar-I'm sure he thinks he deserves it cause we a re sooo mean to him...

ok enough vitriol...I am inhaling 1 2 3 , exhaling 1 2 3-lol

My dad says he's not going anywhere. He told my mom "well go of you want to go." My gma lives with them so she is looking into places they can stay. In North Louisiana. We live in South Louisiana now. My brother still lives with them, but my mom said she would leave his ungrateful 18 y/o butt at home with his daddy. Idk if she actually would leave him, but I.know she isn't trying to put up with him anymore. Plus my lil bro talks to her like a dog. But he was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome at age 8. Idk if that's really what he has. He also has bipolar syndrome and other syndromes. With the fact that he has so many, they can't seem to find a med to help him. But sometimes his behavior is uncalled for. And he treats my mom that way because she doesn't take his crap. My dad yells and things like that too, but my dad always ends up coming out looking like the nice guy when he doesn't listen to my mom's punishment. Ugh. It's complicated. But I just wish my dad would sit down, shut up and be happy that at 71, he's still alive and has a wife that loves him. Idiots.

Good luck Maggie.
Keeping you in my thoughts and hoping things turn around for you.
You're such a kind and giving person and deserve the best.
I hope everything works out for you and your daughter. You deserve to be happy.

Ya'll take your tails over here to North LA and we''ll all be neighbors! lol There's lots and lots of quietness over here on I-49 :) And although New Orleans will always be home, North LA ain't so bad!!!

Maggie, you deserve to be happy and so does Katie. Both of you have had your struggles lately and you will continue to have each other to pull through. Your husband's behavior is unfair and selfish... and it makes me angry (angrier maybe?)

I will pray about this, as that's all I can do. Well, other than offering to be your neighbor :D

Sending prayers today, Bayoub, that your strong religious faith will lift your spirit far above the level of the very serious mental illness of the man you married.

You and Kate take care of each other and please continue to look for the apartment that is suitable for two nice people who deserve so much better.

He is headed down a path of no return--will probably develop a serious heart condition or stroke that will paralyze him if he doesn't get help and be quick about it. I hope to goodness that you never have to support that in your life.

Prayer going out now for your strength and the right apartment for you and Kate if it is God's will, Bayoub.

I.G.

Well, you do have to make below a certain amount. It's different in each area I believe. Go http://www.affordablehousingonline.com/section8housing.asp ; I live basically in Baton Rouge, Maggie. Apparently some of these a holes in the neighborhood decided they didn't wanna be part of the city limits though. Idc.

And Green, if I knew what the heck was going on with my marriage, I might move with my Momma lol. He and I get along like besties! But we haven't had.. um.. you know, whoopie in 2 years! I don't even want to at this point. It'd be too weird.
