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
