I work full time so it was back to the grind for me today. I'm yawning and ready for sleep!
I work 10 hours a day, and travel about 1 hour each day total, and come home to a mouthy 12 year old son and a 9 year old daughter with ADHD. Wow! My son had me so mad earlier - I was sure THE LOOK was going to burn a hole through him. He's slacking in school (when he's above-average on test scores), getting mouthier, and I am almost at the end of my rope with him.
I'll ground him for life if I have to! No, seriously, that wasn't working so I tried a daily thing/weekly thing and let him hang with his friends depending on behavior. Apparently he doesn't appreciate that, so he's grounded again.
Got any advice?
Ahhh... the life of a single mother.
Woe is me....
Have a good one!
